Michy Batshuayi celebrates after scoring the opening goal in Chelsea's FA Cup clash with Newcastle

Chelsea and Newcastle United meet in an all-Premier League FA Cup fourth round encounter as Antonio Conte looks to put talk of his own future and the Blues’ transfer failings behind him by booking a place in the fifth round.

The reigning Premier League champions will have to do so without striker Alvaro Morata and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, with the pair ruled out through back and ankle injuries respectively, with Michy Batshuayi being handed a rare start to lead the Chelsea attack.

Newcastle are enduring a similarly frustrating January in terms of the transfer window, but at least the FA Cup will offer some solace from their relegation battle in the Premier League as they sit precariously above the drop zone by a single point – although like Conte, manager Rafa Benitez’s future hangs in the balance as he considers his position amid a complete lack of transfers this month and the potential sale of the club.

Glenn Hoddle reckons Chelsea's strong line-up is proof of how much manager Antonio Conte wants to win the FA Cup.

"They're under a bit of pressure and that's why they've put a strong side out here. They went to Wembley and were runners-up last year," Hoddle told BT Sport a few moments ago.

"It's a big game for them. They've got to get their confidence back for their league game in midweek and that comes with winning football matches.

"Conte wants to win the FA Cup and that's why he's put this team out. He means business."

Pre-match quotes from Antonio Conte

On the need for Chelsea to bounce back from the midweek loss to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-finals: "There is a great disappointment for us. When you reach the semi-final, it's always important to reach the final but today is another competition and we want to try to do our best.

"Newcastle are a really good team and we'll have to fight a lot to go to the next round."

On naming Eden Hazard in the starting XI again: "We have to start with 11 players and for this reason, when you have Willian and Morata out, we are in a bit of trouble. The other options are Hazard, Batshuayi and Barkley. On the bench we have Musonda and Hudson-Odoi. They can come on to try and help us."
