Newcastle host Chelsea in their tenth Premier League game of the season, still searching for their elusive first victory.

A 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday was not enough for Graeme Jones’ side to drag themselves out of the bottom three - and an ominous task against the European Champions is up next for United.

However, they will draw strength from the fact that they have defeated Chelsea five times in their last eight meetings at St James’s Park, losing just twice in that time.
