[Teams] Newcastle vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-Ups From St James' Park

Benitez has urged supporters not to boycott games or protest during matches this season

It is not the first time Benitez has been on the receiving end of barbed attacks from the television studio as Sky pundits Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp delivered a stinging appraisal of the display.

At the interval, Newcastle must have sensed they could collect at least a point, a target that appeared to be more hard before the start when Benitez was forced to rule out two of his most influential players, Jamaal Lascelles and Jonjo Shelvey.

A 3-0 win over the Blues in May cemented a 10th-place finish for the Magpies on their return to the Premier League and sent Benitez, his players and the fans off on their holidays wearing broad smiles. I am not happy with how we gave the ball away.

With Watford beating Crystal Palace 2-1, it is only the fourth time in its 137-year history that the team has won its first three games of a league season, and the first time in the Premier League.

N'Golo Kante has been one of the most influential players in English football's recent history, capturing back-to-back Premier League titles with Leicester (2016) and Chelsea (2017), and was the rock in the midfield of France's World Cup-winning team in Russian Federation.

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: "We are talking about one of the top sides". I am the coach of a very great club.

'But there is a lot of ill feeling here towards the owner and Benitez will say this is all I have got, and maybe there's a case there'.

The Mirror adds that Cahill has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri, as the Italian has reinstated David Luiz into the starting XI. "It was frustrating to concede two goals, to a penalty that was doubtful and the other from a free-kick that was doubtful". "If players have different opinions then we have to speak about it, that's it, and then we stick to the plan". "But I think, in this case, with this team, there are very intelligent players". 'Newcastle are a big football club and I think people will be surprised at the way they're playing today. I think it is not so easy to play here against this opponent.
