Chelsea is looking to continue their winning streak in the English Premier League 2018-2019 season in Sunday’s match against Newcastle United. Chelsea is unbeaten so far this season, winning 3-0 against Huddersfield two weeks ago, and 3-2 against Arsenal last Saturday. Newcastle is still looking for a victory this season, after losing 2-1 against Tottenham, and a goalless draw with Cardiff City.
According to the Independent, Chelsea is getting a boost from their new head coach, Maurizio Sarri, as shown by their latest wins. Meanwhile, Newcastle’s coach, Rafa Benitez, is feeling the heat after the Cardiff draw, as winger Kenedy missed a penalty in injury-time. Benitez is also dealing with a three-game ban against Isaac Hayden, who received a red card during the Cardiff match while replacing injured player Javier Manquillo. DeAndre Yedlin, who was injured and not able to play during the Cardiff match, is expected to return in the match against Chelsea.

Sky Sports reports that Eden Hazard is expected to start for Chelsea on Sunday, marking his first start for the club this season. Sarri expressed his confidence in Hazard and his desire to keep the player on the Chelsea squad.
“I am the coach of a very good team, a very great club, and so I think with such an important player I cannot sell without the possibility to buy another player at the same level. So I think Eden will stay with us for the whole season.”
