Last week we saw David Beckham playing Right-Back in a 3-0 thrashing of Burnley. Those crosses were good enough to seduce most people without any words spoken! The man behind the Beckham mask was none other than Reece James! Now onto The Magpies… 

There’s been a lot of good memories at St. Jame's park for the last few years but also a few heartbreaks along the way. The last one to date was the last game of the 2017/2018 season when they beat us 3-0! This loss ended the very slim chance of us qualifying for Champions League football the following season as a win would have given us an opportunity if Liverpool had ended up losing the next day. 

Chelsea has to win this game a tough set of fixtures follow. A win helps keep the 5 point gap between United if they win as well, whilst a loss puts us only 2 points ahead of United if they win. 

A Newcastle player to watch out for is Allan Saint-Maximin. The Gucci Headband Tap Dancer just returned from injury and is fit to play us. He could pose a huge threat cutting in on the left side but if we play Reece, this could lower the threat if not eliminate it completely. If he does not play because of fitness, Miguel Almirón would play who is in very good form at the moment and could also cause some problems on the left. The Paraguayan has scored 3 goals in his last 3 games for The Magpies. 

Hudson-Odoi will make his 50th appearance in all competitions if he plays as well as Kante makes a milestone with 150 games for the Blues if selected. 

Team News: Pulisic will be out till the first week of Febuary. Ruben is currently training with the U-16's and will go through each youth ranking before joining the first team. 

Predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Kepa, James, Zouma, Tomori, Azpilicueta, Kante/Jorginho, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Mount, Willian, Abraham. 

 Score Prediction: Chelsea 2 - 0 Newcastle United
