The second international break of the season is over, and on the return to the Premier League, Chelsea host Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will be looking to continue where they left off before the break, coming into this game on a four match winning streak in all competitions.

Frank Lampard’s youthful side have proven the doubters wrong so far this season, and are a real treat to watch. The Blues currently sit in fifth position and have scored an impressive 18 goals in their eight games.

Newcastle, on the other hand, are having slow start to the season. Steve Bruce’s men are currently in 16th position and are scrapping between mid-table and relegation places, where it is very tight at the moment.

However, last time out, the Magpies showed the resilient nature of their squad when they recorded a solid 1-0 victory against Manchester United at St James’ Park.

Despite this, Newcastle’s away form is a worry, as barring the 1-0 victory over Tottenham, the Magpies have lost every away game this season.

This is no doubt a good opportunity for Chelsea to get three points, but Newcastle will be as stubborn as ever and look to frustrate Chelsea.
