Newcastle United welcome Chelsea to St James' Park in the early kick-off on Premier League Matchday 9. Frank Lampard’s men will be looking to pick up right where they left off before the international break, while Newcastle will be hoping that their inconsistent run is behind them. The Newcastle vs Chelsea live stream will begin on Saturday, November 21 at 6:00 pm IST. Here is the Newcastle vs Chelsea live stream information, Newcastle vs Chelsea team news and our Newcastle vs Chelsea prediction.
Chelsea’s new signings finally seem to be clicking, with the Blues playing some of their finest football over the past few weeks. Chelsea are currently on a six-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League and will be hoping to take three points at a venue where they have struggled in the past.
Notably, Chelsea have won just one of their last seven top-flight trips to St James’ Park. However, the Blues will be motivated by the chance to move to the top of the Premier League standings temporarily with a win against Newcastle on Saturday.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, have been solid but have failed to impress fans this season. Steve Bruce’s men have not kept a clean sheet since the opening day of the season and have also managed the lowest number of shots on target out of all Premier League teams this campaign. Despite that number, Newcastle United find themselves in 13th place in the Premier League standings with 11 points from eight games.
Newcastle: Steve Bruce has confirmed that Ryan Fraser won't be available on Saturday while expressing hope that top scorer Callum Wilson will be fit to feature against the Blues. Despite Jonjo Shelvey and Matt Ritchie returning to training, the game will come too early for the duo. Other absentees include Dwight Gayle, Martin Dubravka and Paul Dummett.

Christian Pulisic remains unavailable as well, while Kai Havertz is back in training after recovering from COVID-19. Ben Chilwell is expected to pass a late fitness test and feature from the start.
