Pic Special: Ready To Kick On

There was no November rain on the first day of the new month, but the hats, gloves and tights have started to come out at Newcastle United's training ground.

Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett did not train with their team-mates ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League match against Chelsea after both suffered injuries against Manchester City in midweek.

But Alan Pardew has no new fitness worries - which is just as well, because Jose Mourinho's men are on fire with six wins out of six in all competitions.

The Blues boss has admitted, however, that the trip to St. James' will be one of their toughest games of the season and United certainly looked in good shape at their Benton base on Friday - as Dan King's exclusive nufc.co.uk gallery shows.
