Yes, but Newcastle is more important than Chelsea. Some will disagree, but it is.

You pick your best matchday squad here. Unless...
Or, Jose has set Dele the target to perform in the ‘lesser’ games before being selected for the Premier League. Upto to Dele really to put in the performances we know he is capable of when picked. So far he hasn’t when picked.

We won v Southampton without him. I'd want someone like Dele raring to go v Chelsea. Perfect game for him to prove a point. For whatever reason Dele isn't clicking at the moment, so I can see why he has been left out. We need fresh legs this week as much as possible whether people like it or not. Regardless of the competition (which by the way there are plenty more games left in the league to catch up if need be) I'd rather Dele play v Chelsea.
I'd have him on the bench just in case, unless he's of course the ITk is accurate this morning.

That's fair...I just think we're seriously entertaining letting him go if we get a decent bid.

Yeah I agree we will entertain offers for him. I just don’t think anyone will pay what we would ideally want

I don't disagree, however Jose has to manage the squad on multiple fronts. I don't envy him, but that's our schedule for you. Dele has the quality to win the game v Chelsea. He also has that edge you need for a derby game against them. Maybe he thinks we can win today without Dele? We certainly can in my mind. He is going to have to leave out someone at some point. That's the beauty of having a deep squad now.
Of course we can win without him, most likely will.

I just think there's every chance we're prepared to sell now.

I hate the combination of us coming back from a far away trip across Europe only a couple of days ago + facing a mid table smash and grab team needing a reply after a terrible performance. I'll certainly be surprised if we play and win convincingly

‪No Dele confirmed, strong bench again ‬

‪But Winks starts again. I love him and have protected him for a long time but he’s in shocking form, I would rather Sissoko start right now ‬

I dont think we can be unhappy with this line up considering we are playing 4 in a week. But if it was 1 game a week I wouldn't be happy with this line up

You can see where all the comments about our squad being too large are. Not on the bench today are:

Gazzaniga
Aurier
Foyth
Tanganga
Sessegnon
Gedson
Dele
Bale

And that’s not including the CH and ST to come, or any youth players.
