RW - Miguel Almiron: He was a goal scorer in the last match which shows he's beginning to find his form again. I understand that Almiron isn't everyone's cup of tea but nobody can deny he's our best option at the moment and when he plays well, it's often a blinder. Let's hope it's one of those games.

CF - Callum Wilson: We're waiting to hear back on Alexander Isak, but even is the Swede is fit, I assume Wilson will start this match anyway. Wilson needs to find his goal scoring form again as he's been lacking that instinct in recent weeks, but what a match this would be for him to get on the scoresheet.

LW - Anthony Gordon: In our last match against Chelsea in the Premier League just a few weeks ago, Gordon played a blinder with a goal and an assist, so he will be confident against the midweek opponents.

Predicted Newcastle lineup vs Chelsea: Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Botman, Burn; Miley, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Almiron, Wilson, Gordon
