A win for the Blues will tie them with 18 points alongside table-toppers Leicester City while the Magpies hope to break into the Top 10
Chelsea is going about their business keeping a pretty low profile. Their injury-riddled new season and a lucrative transfer window posed some serious questions about the side’s way forward.
Their Champions League leg has been impressive so far with two wins and a draw from three games and they have won their last two Premier League games against Burnley and Sheffield United quite handsomely.
As the top-tier football returns to action this weekend, Frank Lampard’s men will take on Newcastle at St.James Park on Saturday, November 21.

Kick-off is slated for 7:30 am ET on Saturday, November 21, 2020.

Pre-buzz around the game
The Magpies and the Blues have played 50 matches and the latter enjoy a dominant lead with 25 wins while Newcastle has 13 wins. While Chelsea comes in as firm favorites, Newcastle will take heart from the fact they beat the side in January this year. But with the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, and Ben Chilwell followed by a solid bench strength for the Blues, the win for Newcastle does seem a long time ago.
Werner has been in red-hot form for Chelsea with four league goals and another three in the Champions League. Kai Havertz playing is still in question for Chelsea after he tested positive for coronavirus last week. Watch this space for more updates on team news ahead of the clash.

Chelsea are the obvious favorites and they will look to consolidate their position in the top five with this win.
