Newcastle travel to Chelsea for an FA Cup third round tie on Sunday afternoon. The Magpies sit one point above the Premier League relegation zone so could be forgiven for not prioritising a cup run this season, whereas Antonio Conte may see this competition as one of Chelsea’s best opportunities to win a trophy this term. The Blues are all but out of the race to defend their league crown, and face a tough task against LaLiga giants Barcelona once the Champions League resumes next month.

Rafa Benitez has already returned to Stamford Bridge, where he had a brief spell in charge in 2012/13, once this season. He saw his side go down 3-1 back in December, and he will be keen to improve on that result and performance this time around. His side beat Luton at home to progress, while Chelsea took two bites at Norwich before reaching round four. We are backing them to find this one easier, though.



Chelsea have been struggling for goals of late, recently going on a run of three 0-0 draws in succession, including the first game against Norwich in the last round at Carrow Road. But they returned to form against Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Saturday, even without suspended main striker Alvaro Morata, winning 4-0 courtesy of a stunning performance by Eden Hazard.

For Newcastle, it has been a tough January on and off the pitch for a number of reasons. They lost at Manchester City at the weekend and failed to beat bottom club Swansea the week before.

Team News

Newcastle could welcome injured outcast Aleksandar Mitrovic back into the side, while Chelsea will welcome Morata and Pedro back from suspension.
