After the disappointment of a League Cup semi-final defeat to Arsenal, Chelsea will look to bounce back this weekend when they welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup fourth round.

Antonio Conte will hope for a response from his side, although he is likely to make changes to the starting XI against the Magpies.

Willian will miss the game after tweaking his hamstring in the defeat to the Gunners. While Álvaro Morata, Cesc Fabregas, Thibaut Courtois and Danny Drinkwater are all doubts due to injury.
