Chelsea have a theoretically placid game against Newcastle

Chelsea play against the English team with Atlético de Madrid in mind, the rival they will face in the Champions League on 23 February.


Beyond the sensations and the climate of the dressing room, which, surely, will have improved with the recovery of some players like Marcos Alonso, the departure of Lampard and the subsequent arrival of Tuchel have relaunched Chelsea. A draw and four consecutive victories have put the blues back on track to fight for a place in the next Champions League, as Manchester City, who have the Premier almost in their pocket, have already escaped 14 points away .

Tuchel, therefore, has the opportunity to fight for the fifth victory against a Newcastle doomed to relegation places, a placid match a priori just a week before facing Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League (follow the match live in As. com). As for the line-up, Kanté still does not seem prepared to chain several consecutive games, while Chilwell, who seemed the signing that had best adapted to the team, is having to fight Marcos for a place in the starting eleven.

However, while the results are consistent, it seems difficult to question the decisions of the former PSG. With the German at the helm, the team is not only undefeated, but they have barely conceded a goal against despite the fact that Thiago Silva is injured and still not expected for tonight's game. On the horizon, however, the real challenge for Chelsea de Tuchel. Southampton, Atlético de Madrid, Manchester United, Everton, Leeds, Atlético again, Liverpool ... the month ahead of the blues can either condemn or fuel the goals of the season.
