Chelsea make a trip to St James's Park as they face Newcastle United in a weekend Premier League clash on Saturday.
Where to Watch Live
Kick-off is for 12:45pm GMT. Live coverage is on BT Sport 1. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.
The corresponding fixture last season saw the Magpies seal a 2-0 victory over the Blues, courtesy of Yoan Gouffran and Loic Remy's goals, with the latter now returning to the Tyneside as the opposition player.
Chelsea will welcome star striker Diego Costa after the Spain international was suspended for their midweek fixture against Tottenham Hotspur. Despite his absence, Jose Mourinho's side sealed a comfortable 3-0 victory over their London rivals.
Newcastle come into the game after their previous encounter ended in a 1-1 draw against Burnley. They were forced to come from behind to seal a point away from home in the midweek league clash.
Chelsea are unbeaten in the league this season and Alan Pardew will be hoping his side can seal a victory over the west London club on Saturday afternoon.
What Managers Say
Alan Pardew: "Mentally we are in a strong position and our confidence is high. We have good spirit and are learning lessons along the way. We need to threaten Chelsea because they look terrific. They are a great team who are strong and organised. Somewhere along the line Chelsea will slip up, and hopefully we can exploit any weaknesses they have."
Jose Mourinho: "The important thing is Drogba is here and will finish his career with Chelsea. It looks, for me, that he's going to stay doing other things when he finishes his career."
