History of the Chelsea v Newcastle United fixture
Newcastle United face a trip to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at tea-time on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Magpies will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 42 and win only 12 of the 75 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Stamford Bridge was less than a year ago, in May 2012, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Premier League match.
