Chelsea prepare to entertain Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blues are clearly on top, having won 40 and lost only 10 of the 69 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Stamford Bridge was just last season, in December 2006, the Blues carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
