Chelsea v Newcastle United: Kick-off time, TV details, ticket updates and the latest injury news
Victory over Southampton means Newcastle have collected 16 points from the last 18 available - but they now face a daunting trip to Stamford Bridge.
Despite all their off-field troubles, Thomas Tuchel’s side come into the clash with Newcastle unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches, winning their last four on the spin.
And historically, Chelsea has not been a happy hunting ground for the Magpies who have won just once at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, coming almost a decade ago when Papiss Cisse’s brace lit-up Stamford Bridge.
The first meeting between the sides this season ended in a comfortable 3-0 win for the Blues - but Eddie Howe’s side will go into this game full of confidence following their recent run.
