Newcastle United have already found themselves in a hostile environment in this new season of the Premier League. They were welcome to this season with a 2-1 thrashing by Tottenham Spurs at home last weekend.

Notably, they are without a win in their last 2 played matches of the League this season. In this game, Newcastle may miss some of their influential players including Isaac Hayden who has a red card in their encounter with Cardiff and Javier Manquillo succumbed to injury last weekend.

This game will definitely be a hard one for Newcastle and may just add up to their woes.

The Blues are in high spirits as they come into this away fixture. This is after thrashing their long-time challengers, the gunners, in a home match that ended 3-2. According to Maurizio Sarri, the new coach at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are aiming to win most of their early league matches to safeguard their future as contenders for the Barclays Premier League Trophy.

Chelsea will miss the services of Cesc Fabregas who is suffering a knee injury. Eden Hazard, who has lacked a spot in the first 11 for the past 2 games, may start in this away match. Most definitely, the trio of Morata, Conte, and Pedro will be among the starting XI of Sarri’s men.
