Newcastle United vs. Chelsea, Premier League: Confirmed lineups

New, comments

Spurs did everyone a favor in today's early kickoff by spanking Manchester City 4-1 (four!).  We'll have a new leader in the league in fact, weirdly enough, it will be Manchester United.  But more importantly, Chelsea have a chance to move within just 6 points of the top, which would be pretty amazing, considering that we were 11 points off just two weeks.

We know whom to thank, too:

Just don't mess it up by not winning against one of the worst sides currently in the Premier League.

UP THE BLUES!

Chelsea, as expected, start with Cahill & Zouma at the back and Rémy up top.  It's Eden Hazard's 150th start; maybe he'll score his 50th Chelsea goal again.

Let's do this.
