Newcastle United Vs Chelsea
Sports Direct Arena could witness a hard-fought encounter.

Chelsea travel to the recently renamed Sports Direct Arena to face Newcastle Unted with a chance to arrest their recent slump and jump to fourth place in the Premier League.

The Blues come to this game on the back of a 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Carling Cup, during midweek, which saw them eliminated from the competition. What it also did was to heap pressure on manager Andre Villas-Boas who was hoping to gain some momentum from the 3-0 win over Wolves last weekend.

Chelsea's season depends on the next two weeks, beginning with the match against third-placed Newcastle on Saturday, before a crunch Champions League encounter against Valencia followed by a trip to Manchester City. With speculation rising on Villas-Boas' job, which owes much to Roman Abramovic's reputation of sacking managers, Chelsea need to come out with a positive.
