Howe’s your luck?
Newcastle are in some form heading into this game, having won four of their last four games in the league, and scoring eight in their last two.
A number of players have impressed, including Callum Wilson, Bruno Guimaraes and Kieran Trippier, but it is Miguel Almiron and manager Eddie Howe who have taken most of the plaudits.
The Paraguayan winger has been a man reborn since Jack Grealish insultingly compared Riyad Mahrez to him at the end of last season, and deservedly picked up the Premier League player and goal of the month awards just a few days ago.
His boss also picked up the Premier League manager of the month award for November, and no one was arguing that one, as he has turned around what was once a sinking ship at Newcastle.
One thing is for sure, that this is not going to be easy for Chelsea, against one of the most in-form sides in world football.
