Predicted Lineups and Team News: Premier League Gameweek Nine
Saturday Predicted Lineups and Team News
Newcastle United v Chelsea
Callum Wilson is the major injury concern for Newcastle United. Ryan Fraser is also likely to miss out.
For the Blues, Christian Pulisic will miss out with hamstring injury once again. Frank Lampard reports that Kai Havertz has been cleared but he’s been working individually, and the German may not be considered for Saturday. Thiago Silva has just landed back in the UK and probably won’t travel to Newcastle. Timo Werner could get a rest this week.
Darlow, Murphy, Schär, Lascelles, Fernández, Lewis; S Longstaff, Hendrick, Almirón, Saint-Maximin, Carroll.
Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Chilwell, Kanté, Kovacic, Ziyech, Mount, Werner, Abraham.
Newcastle have lost only one of their last seven Premier League home games against Chelsea (W5 D1). However, Chelsea look to have enough in their tank to buck the trend this time around.
Newcastle United 0 – 2 Chelsea
Aston Villa v Brighton & Hove Albion
Aston Villa should go with the same lineup that won confidently at the Emirates last time around.
Aaron Connolly and Solly March are back in training for the Seagulls. Graham Potter said that Davy Propper had a bit of illness and he will make a late decision on Leandro Trossard. Alexis Mac Allister has been ruled out. On a positive note for the visitors, Lewis Dunk is back from suspension.

Brighton & Hove Albion
Ryan, Lamptey, Dunk, Webster, Burn, White, Bissouma, March, Welbeck, Maupay, Lallana.
This could be a very interesting match. Brighton always try to play a passing game and dominate possession. However, their lack of cutting edge in front of goal will hurt them and Villa should build on their impressive start.

Branislav Ivanovic and Matheus Pereira have trained this week after missing the home defeat to Tottenham due to a positive COVID-19 test. Callum Robinson was also released from the Republic of Ireland squad after a positive swab. Slaven Bilić is hopeful he can be cleared for training on Friday.
