The Magpies won the reverse fixture strongly with a 4-1 scoreline

The Mauricio Pochettino led Chelsea side are currently in a humble position in the Premier League. 10 wins and 6 draws after 26 league fixtures keeps the Blues very far off from European places while they linger in mid-table. In the last two league games, the Stamford Bridge hosts settled for draws respectively to Manchester City and Brentford.

Newcastle United are in a better league position than their upcoming opponents. A collaborative effort of 12 wins and 4 draws sees them stand in 8th place in the division. Still, the Magpies are currently 10 points below the club in the final European competition spot. After a 4-1 thrashing by Arsenal, Eddie Howe’s side responded with a 3-0 win to Wolves.
