Chelsea boss Frank Lampard would be hoping to build on the last win in the Premier League when he takes his players up north to face Newcastle United.
Lampard and his players returned to winning ways following the emphatic victory over struggling Burnley last weekend.
Jorginho (penalty), topscorer Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi were on target as Chelsea thrashed the Clarets 3-0 at home and that win was enough to maintain their place in the top four.
