Newcastle United will be keen to come away from Stamford Bridge with a positive result when they take on Chelsea this weekend. 

The Magpies head into the fixture on the back of a 1-1 draw against Championship side Blackburn Rovers in the third round of the FA Cup. 

Chelsea, meanwhile, defeated Nottingham Forest in the same competition before being defeated during the week. The Blues were condemned to a 1-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final. 

Rafa Benitez will be well aware of his side’s underdog status ahead of the trip to his former team but will be keen to spring a surprise following the London club’s recent shortcomings in the Premier League. 

Here is how we expect Newcastle to line up against Chelsea.
