Unbeaten in the league this season, the Blues have the chance to take a nine point lead in the table.
Amar Singh, Digital Sport Editor of the London Evening Standard said: “Chelsea are playing so well at the moment, which we saw in the manner with which they beat Tottenham in Wednesday’s 3-0 win.
They also have their main striker Diego Costa back from suspension so it will be a tough game for Newcastle.”
Arsenal face Stoke at the Brittania Stadium which has not been a happy hunting ground for the Gunners.
Singh added: “Arsenal have been playing well, winning three in a row and keeping clean sheets but Stoke are a bit of a bogey team for them.
There is a lot of history and bad blood between the sides going to back when Aaron Ramsey’s leg was broken after being tackled by Ryan Shawcross in 2010.
Arsenal will face a hostile atmosphere so it’s a big test for Wenger’s side.”
