Chelsea vs Newcastle United will undoubtedly be a tasty affair since both these sides managed to pick up key wins during the previous weekend.

While the Blues have successfully managed to get their season back on track by beating Southampton 4-1 away from home, the Magpies, on the other hand, picked up their second win of the season by beating Man United.

Newcastle United currently sit in the 16th spot of the league table and on paper they shouldn’t be able to pose any real threat to the Blues.

But after upsetting Man United, Steve Bruce will be hoping to come out of London with something.

The Blues are currently tied on points with fourth-placed Leicester City and a win vs Newcastle mind very well help Frank Lampard’s side get into the top-four of the Premier League by the start of next week.
