European Champions Chelsea host Newcastle for the return leg as the English Premier League continues. Chelsea is stuck in third with Arsenal too far away to threaten their position at the table. They are also too far behind 2nd placed Liverpool to compete for the trophy. Despite this, they are on a run of good form and the return of fullbacks James and Chilwell will make all the difference to their squad. Newcastle has struggled against Chelsea in this fixture and they are the underdogs going into this one. A win for the home team Chelsea.
