Newcastle United will be hoping to stun Chelsea when they visit Stamford Bridge in the early kick-off on Saturday.

Rafa Benitez will make his highly-anticipated return to the Blues’ home, with the Spaniard having spent the 2012/13 season with the club on an interim basis following the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo.

The Magpies have been in treacherous form recently, but put a stop to the rut in midweek. After having lost their last four games, Newcastle clawed back two goals to draw 2-2 with West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Chelsea, though, are in a superb spell of form and continued their winning run with a home win against Swansea City.

The pressure will be off Newcastle when they take to the field at Stamford Bridge. Although they are in desperate need of a win, they face a gruelling task away at the reigning champions of England, and little is expected of them.

Without further ado, take a look at how we expect Newcastle to line up against Chelsea!
