The Magpies have long secured safety - a target comfortably achieved by Benitez's side this term - but they have been beaten in each of their last four fixtures.
Ethan Ampadu and David Luiz are out for Chelsea. Danny Drinkwater is unlikely to feature despite returning to training, although Conte could shuffle his pack ahead of the FA Cup final.
Jesus Gamez and Christian Atsu are Newcastle's injury absentees, while loan striker Islam Slimani is suspended.
Goals at a premium?
Newcastle have failed to find the net in three of their last four matches and scoring goals has proven problematic for the Magpies all season.
Indeed, Benitez's men have averaged fewer than one goal per game in the Premier League and dabblebet go 23/20 (2.15) that the hosts draw a blank on Sunday.
Chelsea have scored just three goals in their last three games and odds of 17/20 (1.85) are available on there being fewer than three goals in the game.
Tips and predictions
It is worth noting that Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last 10 Premier League victories, while the Magpies have scored just once in their last four outings.
As such, dabblebet's 23/20 (2.15) quote for Conte's men to keep a clean sheet could represent good value for punters ahead of Sunday's showdown at St James' Park.
