Chelsea's stranglehold at the summit of the Premier League loosened at the turn of the year on the back of the 5-3 defeat to Spurs at White Hart Lane. They have the perfect opportunity to bounce back against a Newcastle side that has lost their last 2 league games at Stamford Bridge, conceding 5 in the process.Under John Carver, Newcastle have struggled having conceded 4 goals in 2 games, including a 1-0 reverse at Leicester in the FA Cup. Things don't get much easier with a trip to the Premier League table toppers and with a lengthy injury list, the Magpies are likely to struggle in west London.After the disappointing loss on New Years Day, Jose Mourinho will demand his players secure all 3 points here, which should be a formality.
