Suffering a defeat on their midweek Carabao Cup battle against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea are targeting for a quick bounce back on Saturday, January 12.
The Blues Still Looking for First League Win in 2019
Playing host to struggling Newcastle United, Maurizio Sarri’s men will be pushing for nothing but three points as they are still looking for that first league victory in the new year.
Their only victory so far in 2019 was when they defeated Nottingham Forest on FA Cup third round battle last weekend.
Still having issues with their striking options up front, Sarri will still be relying a lot on Eden Hazard to shine and lead The Blues’ attack.
Despite their recent struggle up front, Chelsea still have plenty quality attacking minded players who can decide games with their goals.
Newcastle Hoping to Lift Morale With Good Result at Stamford Bridge
Struggling to get themselves out of relegation danger, Rafael Benitez has another tough task on Saturday as they must stop Hazard and co.
Winning only once in their last five league fixtures, The Magpies’ morale is certainly not that high ahead of their travel to Stamford Bridge.
Scoring goals remain an issue for Benitez’s side as so far they only managed to net 15, which is the second lowest in all Premier League team this season.
