Newcastle and Chelsea look to return to winning ways

Newcastle United and Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways and climb the Premier League table when they do battle at St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.

While the Magpies sit seventh in the table with 20 points from 12 matches, the Blues find themselves four places and four points further back in 10th spot.

Newcastle were unable to enter the international break on a high as they saw their seven-game unbeaten league run brought to an end by  Bournemouth

Injuries have slightly derailed Newcastle’s campaign, but the international break arguably came at a decent time for them to reset and allow some first-team stars to build up their fitness ahead of a challenging run of fixtures in the coming weeks.

In contrast to Newcastle, Chelsea headed into the international break in buoyant mood after claiming four valuable points in back-to-back fixtures against former Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur and current table-toppers Manchester City.

Victory for either side would provide a significant confidence boost heading into the festive period.
