Newcastle vs Chelsea match preview

Newcastle fans have enjoyed some fantastic matches at St James’ Park this year. The Magpies have beaten the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United at home and they would love another big victory against Chelsea this weekend.

Antonio Conte’s men won 3-1 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season with goals coming from Eden Hazard (2) and Alvaro Morata after Dwight Gayle had given the Magpies a surprise lead.

Newcastle head into Sunday’s match against Chelsea off the back of four straight defeats.

Regardless of their recent results, Newcastle fans are still very happy with the way that their season has panned out. Rafa Benitez has done a fantastic job in keeping the club in the top flight.

The feel good factor is no longer around with the Chelsea fans.

Chelsea dropped points at home against Huddersfield on Wednesday night meaning the Champions League dream is all but over.

Olivier Giroud has been Chelsea’s best performer in recent weeks but Antonio Conte will surely rest some of his key players so that they are fit and ready to face Manchester United at Wembley in the FA Cup final next week.

Kenedy is ruled out of contention due to the terms of his loan deal.

Rafa Benitez has no other injuries or suspensions to worry about as he looks to end the season on a high against his former employers.

Chelsea team news

Chelsea will only be without centre back David Luiz for the trip up to the North East this weekend.

That said, Antonio Conte will surely play some of his younger squad members to give them a chance in the first team.
