Chelsea managed a narrow 1-0 win over Swansea City in mid-week to keep ground on Manchester United who had dispatched Watford 2-4 at Vicarage Road.
The Blues should not be too much of a challenge when it comes to two wins on the bounce this Saturday when they are host to the struggling Newcastle United side in the curtain-raiser on Saturday.
Antonio Conte's men have thus made five wins and a draw in the last six Premier League fixtures thanks to Antonio Rudiger whose goal is to make the difference in the second half against the Welsh outfit.
David Luis, who does not seem to be bothering Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger, has been doing a solid job defensively as late.
The Blues have actually conceded no more than a single goal in the last five league matches and they have the third-best defensive record in the entire league at the moment.
The Magpies have been here for a while now, and they are so impressive.
The newly-promoted side will obviously have plenty of trouble to avoid the relegation scrap.
The lone draw came on Wednesday evening when the team led by Rafael Benitez. The Hawthorns played a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea vs Newcastle United: Prediction
Alvaro Morata has been in the Premier League for over a decade now.
We believe the hosts will take advantage of their opponents here.Source
