Chelsea host Newcastle this Saturday on the ninth day of the Premier League. A meeting that Olivier Giroud will start on the bench of the Blues.
The French striker, scorer twice with the Blues at the international truce, did not convince Frank Lampard to start. The London coach still prefers Tammy Abraham.
Michy Basthuayi, also a scorer with Belgium, is also a substitute. Kurt Zouma is the incumbent in central defense. N’Golo Kanté is forfeited.
