Predicted Chelsea and Newcastle United line-ups: Full strength for Mourinho

Chelsea Stand

Match to be played on Saturday 10th January 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be confident his team can put another three points on the board and stay top of the Premier League.

The Blues are under pressure for one of the few times this season, with current champions Manchester city level on points with them and breathing down their necks.

Mourinho’s team have been challenged in recent weeks, but he can be confident of a strong reaction after his side were outplayed in the London derby against Tottenham before the FA Cup games.

Newcastle assistant John Carver will be determined to get a positive result, which should help to prevent his team from dropping into the bottom half of the table.

It’s also a result which would help him in terms of his own chances of landing the Newcastle job on a long term basis.

Here are the sides that each manager may go with.

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Willian, Matic, Fabregas, Oscar, Hazard, Costa

Newcastle: Alnwick, Santon, Williamson, Dummett, Haidara, Anita, Vuckic, Campbell, Riviere, Cabella, Armstrong
