Can Newcastle Get Something At Chelsea – What Team Will Start?


After Newcastle’s heroics at the Hawthorns on Tuesday night, we now have a much tougher game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

In the games against the top sides, we have to try to defend well to keep the game tight and not concede too many goals.

Our goal difference is still fairly good at -6, and it could be crucial as to where we finish in the league table next May.

It will also be interesting to see which team Rafa will choose for the game in London with the manager making five changes for the West Brom game following the debacle at home to Watford.

Mikel Merino – made the difference on Tuesday night

We have three games in 8 days to play from last Saturday, so some players needed a rest on Tuesday night which is why Rafa said he made the changes.

But some of our players also have not been playing well over the last couple of games, but thankfully the lads did much better at West Brom.

We would take a point at Chelsea – it would be an excellent result for us.

Mikel Merino made the difference at West Brom – maybe he can do the same thing on Saturday?

    I reckon on current form we will get around 26 points from our remaining games, giving us 41 points 😐

    That’s not factoring in some reinforcements in January .

    You don’t give a rats about the homophobic or racist comments you only care about what you perceive a xenophobia.

    You whinge on more and more every day and I get the feeling you aren’t even Danish, you come across as a whining makem.

    Give it a rest and give Ed a break.

    From what are you dreaming. The only what we can bring home from London is a defeat.
    I don`t now, why all People think Rafa is a good Manager. The last games Shows us, he is a looser.
    The changes everytime mutch to late, why not starting with Mitrovic. Joselu is a terrible Player. How many
    millions we payed for such a looser. I say we loose all our next games, Chelsea, Leicester, Everton and Arsenal and then we go down. What we Need is a german Manager and not a spanish looser.

    You can’t even spell loser right. How many times can you mis-spell a word in one post?

    Xenophobic doesn’t have a Z in it either

    Just for the record http://www.rafabenitez.com/web/in/honours/12/

    Hello, Im so sorry about the mistake with loser and looser. I`m from Germany and all Germans are krauts,.
    But I think Rafa is a loser. Next year with new owners we get a new Manager and then we will win the
    premier league.
