Chelsea are yet to lose a league game under new manager Thomas Tuchel and are set to extend that unbeaten streak to five when lowly Newcastle arrive in London on Monday night.
Newcastle may have won two of their last three Premier League outings but Steve Bruce’s men aren’t expected to be a match for the defensive solidity that Tuchel has injected into this Blues team.
Chelsea have kept games tight so far under the new boss and can point to victories in three successive Premier League fixtures as proof of their progress.
The Magpies, meanwhile, have stemmed their plummet down the league table with recent triumphs over Southampton and Everton.
Boss Steve Bruce appears to have staved off calls for his dismissal for now, but will be well aware of the 2-0 defeat Chelsea inflicted on his side back in November.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Newcastle
Tuchel has installed the defensive discipline in Chelsea that evaporated in Frank Lampard’s final few weeks in charge at Stamford Bridge – and this puts the Blues in firm control of Monday’s game.
Newcastle have looked wayward over the winter and despite two recent wins shouldn’t have the firepower to really trouble the Londoners here.
This could be a chance for Timo Werner to end his goal drought, while Mason Mount should cause the Toon defence a world of trouble.
