Match Preview

Chelsea are likely to blood a number of youngsters in their Carling Cup third round tie against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

Centre-half Jeffrey Bruma, full-back Patrick van Aanholt, midfielder Gael Kakuta and striker Daniel Sturridge are all set to start. Captain John Terry and midfielder Frank Lampard will miss out with rib and hernia injuries respectively while a number of first team players will be rested.

Goalkeeper Hilario is also out with a rib injury sustained in training. Goalkeeper Ross Turnbull is looking forward to playing against the team he supported as a boy. Chelsea are likely to rest Petr Cech to allow Turnbull his first start of the season for the Blues.

The 25-year-old grew-up in Durham and was a huge Newcastle fan before turning professional with local rivals Middlesbrough.


"A lot of my family were supporters too and we had season tickets when we were younger so I'll be looking forward to the game," Turnbull said.

"Everyone likes to play against their boyhood team, so I'm looking forward to it.

"They seem to have done fine since they've been back up in the Premier League. I look for their results but my interest doesn't go much further than that anymore, and I'm sure they will have a good season.

"Everyone wants to play football and it's a good chance for me to play well.

"I'm not sure what the manager plans to do with the Carling Cup side. Last year Petr was rested but whether that continues I don't know, it is his decision and I'll go along with it, but from a personal point of view I'd obviously like to continue if we get through."

Former England defender Sol Campbell is expected to make his Newcastle debut. The 36-year-old is likely to be included as manager Chris Hughton uses the depth of his squad at Stamford Bridge.

Tim Krul will start in goal with Steve Harper facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a shoulder ligament injury, and Swedish youngster Ole Soderberg will provide the back-up. Leon Best (ankle) returns to the squad, while Danny Simpson (also ankle) and Danny Guthrie (knee) are back in training. Steven Taylor (shoulder) is expected to resume in three weeks' time, but Dan Gosling (knee) is still some way away.

Chris Hughton has told his Newcastle players they should relish the trip to free-scoring Chelsea. The Magpies head for Stamford Bridge on the back of their impressive 1-0 Barclays Premier League victory at Everton to face a side who have plundered 12 goals in just three games to date this season on their own pitch.

Perhaps more worryingly, they scored six without reply against last season's Championship runners-up West Brom and on Saturday, struck four times within the opening 41 minutes to see off play-off winners Blackpool.

Newcastle, who strolled to the Championship title last season, headed south knowing their task could hardly be more difficult as they attempt to become the first visiting side to find the back of the net at the Bridge during the new campaign while at the same time hoping to repel Carlo Ancelotti's seemingly irresistible attack.

But while the prospect of trying to keep the likes of Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda at bay may cause the odd sleepless night, former Tottenham and Republic of Ireland defender Hughton insists his players should be looking forward to it.

He said with a smile: "You go to bed the night before hoping they can't play! Actually, it's the complete opposite.

"Although it's a Carling Cup game, which is away from the pressure of the league, these are the games you want to be involved in, these are the games you want the players to be involved in.

"With all due respect to the other teams, going to your Old Traffords and your Stamford Bridges and your Emirates, they are the really tough competitive games that you want the players to be involved in.

"It's one more to look forward to than to fear - and, of course, there isn't that pressure on us.

"I don't think people expect us to win, so we go there without that pressure."

Match Report

Magpies soar and send Chelsea packing Newcastle's Shola Ameobi sent 10-man Chelsea crashing out of the Carling Cup 4-3 with a 90th-minute winner in a seven-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea, who lost Salomon Kalou and Yossi Benayoun through injury, had taken a sixth-minute lead through young left-back Patrick Van Aanholt only for United to storm back and lead at the interval thanks to goals from Nile Ranger and Ryan Taylor. Shola Ameobi made it 3-1 to United four minutes after the re-start but two goals from Nicolas Anelka (69, 86) looked to have taken the tie into extra-time. However, Ameobi headed the winner from a Jonas Gutierrez corner in the 90th minute to earn United a deserved place in round four. Chelsea made a dream start when left-back Van Aanholt crowned his full debut with a goal. The left-back drilled an angled shot into the corner after being set up superbly by Gael Kakuta. But Newcastle were level against the run of play in the 26th minute. Shane Ferguson's left-wing cross caused problems in the Chelsea defence and when John Terry failed to clear, Ranger stole in on the blind side of Van Aanholt to level. Ranger then squandered a great chance to put Newcastle 2-1 in front on the half-hour. Great work by Gutierrez on the left saw him deliver a low cross into the Chelsea six-yard box but the ball spun off the foot of Ranger to the relief of home fans. Chelsea centre-half Jeffrey Bruma was lucky to escape with just a yellow card for a foul on Ameobi in the 32nd minute as Newcastle continued to dominate. Taylor punished Bruma and Chelsea for the foul when the Newcastle midfielder sent the ball around the wall and into the top corner. Ameobi then caused more problems for Chelsea in the 35th minute but his angled shot was cleared off the line by Van Aanholt. Taylor was lucky to remain on the pitch in the 40th minute when he brought down Van Aanholt but referee Phil Dowd opted to lecture him instead of producing a second yellow. Chelsea made two changes at half-time with striker Kalou and defender Alex replacing Gael Kakuta and Terry. But the changes had little time to take effect as United went further in front in the 49th minute. Paulo Ferreira's pass went straight to the feet of Ameobi who ran on unchecked to fire a 25-yard drive beyond Ross Turnbull. It was the first time Chelsea had conceded three goals at home since Manchester City's 4-2 demolition of the Blues in February. The night got worse for Chelsea in 53rd minute when Kalou went down with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. The Ivory Coast striker was taken off on a stretcher and replaced by teenage midfielder Josh McEachran. The youngster was quickly into the game and Tim Krul had to be alert to save his 20-yard shot in the 59th minute. The misery continued for the Blues in the 62nd minute when Benayoun turned his ankle and was forced to leave the field. It left the home side down to 10-men but still they battled on with Alex sending a 20-yard effort against the outside of the right-hand upright. Chelsea reduced the deficit in the 69th minute when Van Aanholt's cross was turned home by Anelka. In the 82nd minute, a cross from Lovenkrands was met by Ranger at the far post but Turnbull saved at the second attempt. It allowed Chelsea to sensationally equalise in the 86th minute when substitute Cheik Tiote was harshly adjudged to have fouled Alex and Anelka scored from the spot-kick. Ferreira smashed an 88th minute volley against the upright as Chelsea looked for a winner. But it was Newcastle who earned a place in the fourth round when Ameobi rose above Bruma to head the winner from a Gutierrez corner.
