League leading goal scorer Diego Costa continues to lead The Blues which square off against a recently surging Newcastle United squad. The Magpies arrive at Stamford Bridge led by stand-in manager John Carver (in for the recently departed Alan Pardew, who is taking over the vacant Crystal Palace job) and are looking to ascend on the table in which they currently sit in 10thplace with 27 points.
