Chelsea FC vs Newcastle United: Gamethread 5/2/12

Big game today, both clubs need three points. The winner today will likely all but wrap up a final spot in the table above the loser, and a draw really helps nobody unless the Spudsters lose. Spuds head to Bolton this afternoon, with Spurs also desperate for a win while Bolton would move out of the relegation zone with a win. With that in mind, Roberto Di Matteo has decided on the following lineup:

Chelsea: Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Bertrand, Mikel, Meireles, Ramires, Malouda, Sturridge, Torres

Subs: Turnbull, Cole, Essien, Lampard, Mata, Kalou, Drogba

We'll be facing off against the following side:

Newcastle: Krul, Perch, Coloccini, Williamson, Santon, Cabaye, Tiote, Jonas, Ben Arfa, Cisse, Ba

Subs: Elliot, Ferguson, R.Taylor, Gosling, Obertan, Marveauz, Shola Ameobi

Let's keep this train rolling...Let's Go Blues!
