Chelsea vs Newcastle: Preview, match facts, broadcast listings - January 12

January 12, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Can the Blues avoid matching an unwanted record as they take on Newcastle? Tune in to Chelsea vs Newcastle United on NBC in the USA and BT Sport 1 in the UK.

Current form: Chelsea vs Newcastle United

Chelsea come into this game having lost 1-0 to Tottenham in their midweek League Cup tie, and the Blues will be hoping to get back to winning ways after that disappointing result. More concerning is the fact that they have now gone two home games sans a goal following a loss to Leicester and a dull scoreless stalemate with Southampton, and will be looking to avoid going three home matches without scoring for the first time in over 25 years.

They will have a good opportunity to end this drought as Newcastle not only have won just one of their last eight league fixtures, but have struggled badly against teams referred to as the "Big Six" all season. The Toons are winless in their last 12 away fixtures against teams in this elite group, including Chelsea, and more significant, have lost their last nine in a row. Furthermore, Chelsea have lost just one of their last 23 home fixtures against Newcastle, and that defeat was over six years ago.

Team news: Chelsea vs Newcastle United

Chelsea: Alvaro Morata is in doubt for this game due to a hamstring problem that caused him to miss Chelsea's midweek clash with Tottenham in the League Cup. His fellow Spanish international Cesc Fabregas will play no part in this fixture due to his impending move to Monaco, and English youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek is struggling with a back issue that will have him definitely miss this game.

Newcastle United: Federico Fernandez, Mohamed Diame, and Jonjo Shelvey are all doubts for the visitors ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge.
