Our betting partner 138.com brings United fans the best odds as ahead of the game at St. James' Park.

 

 

Match Odds

It has been a tough week for Newcastle, losing to bitter rivals Sunderland in the Tyne-Wear derby last weekend and tasting defeat to Manchester City in extra-time of their Capital One Cup tie.

The Magpies will take heart, however, in the fact they won the corresponding fixture last season, beating the Blues 3-2 with an 89th minute winner from Moussa Sissoko.

Newcastle have one of the poorer defensive records in the league, having not kept a top fligh clean sheet since the end of August.

Chelsea have been in stunning form of late, winning six on the bounce, and it looks as though Fernando Torres may be on his way back to his best.

Unbelievably, Jose Mourinho is still looking for his first Premier League win at St. James' Park. In his three previous attempts, the Portuguese boss has picked up just two points.

Newcastle to win: 5/1

The Draw: 11/4

Chelsea to win: 4/7
