After succumbing to Newcastle for their first defeat of the season Chelsea have seen their eight point lead slip to nought. Now level with Manchester City can the blues bounce back? Chelsea face into Stamford Bridge though where they have been perfect this season, nine games nine wins and the fans , team and management will be looking to make it ten from ten tomorrow. Fabregas and Hazard seem to have an almost telepathic link this season and with Diego Costa also on the same wave length Chelsea have been very impressive at times. Chelsea's struggles only seem to happen away from home so it's hard to make a case here for Newcastle.
Especially as Newcastle are officially managerless with Alan Pardew gone to take over Crystal Palace. John Carver will step in for the time being but with a number of injuries and suspensions he brings a bruised and battered squad to London. Look for Reveillierre and Cissokho to be the key men up front for the magpies but I think this is going to be too big an ask for Newcastle. Newcastle were the ones to end Chelsea's unbeaten season but that was in St James Park.
Simply put I think Chelsea are too strong here. I'm going to take the overs here. Chelsea should easily account for Newcastle here and they will be keen to counce back from their 5-3 defeat to Tottenham when last out in the Premier League. jJse Mourhino will be looking to get a big win here as well after losing to Newcastle up in Newcastle.
