Former European champions Chelsea have the opportunity to make the top four in the Premier League for the first time this season when they take on Newcastle United at home.

It is one of the week nine games in the Premier League and the match is billed for Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Chelsea have won their last two games in the Premier League and they could make it three wins in a row.

The Blues have not managed three victories on the bounce in the league this season though it must be pointed out that the Premier League is just two months old.

They face a Newcastle United side that has been largely unpredictable this season under new manager Steve Bruce.

Newcastle United have failed to beat any team outside the traditional top six since the start of this Premier League season.

The Magpies have won just two Premier League games this season and they have been against traditional top six teams.

Newcastle United stunned Spurs at home via a 1-0 win last month before repeating the same scoreline at home to Manchester United in their last league game.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso; Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley; Mason Mount, Willian, Tammy Abraham.
