Newcastle United and Chelsea meet on Tyneside this evening with the home side looking to overturn a rotten run against The Blues in all competitions.
The Magpies have won just one of their last nine meetings with the South West Londoners, this is despite the fact that they have scored in five of those matches.
Ahead of the latest meeting, we take a look back at recent games between the two sides as we summarise the last three meetings.
26 August 2018 – Newcastle United 1 Chelsea 2 (English Premier League)
Chelsea got lucky at St James’ Park as a late goal from Newcastle United defender DeAndre Yedlin handed them an unlikely victory on Tyneside.
Marcos Alonso’s effort took a wicked deflection off the American defender three minutes from time with the ball bouncing into the net after deceiving home keeper Martin Dubravka.
All of the action came in the final 15 minutes of the match. First, Eden Hazard opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Alonso had been tripped in the area before Joselu headed home an equaliser with seven minutes left on the clock.
It looked as though the two sides would share the spoils until Alonso’s strike hit the unfortunate Yedlin to hand The Blues a maximum return.

The Blues took control of the proceedings in the second half and Willian curled in wonderful strike as his side battled to a narrow victory over the relegation-threatened Magpies.
19 October 2019 – Chelsea 1 Newcastle United 0 (English Premier League)
Marcos Alonso rifled home a second half winner as Chelsea defeated Newcastle United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
A frustrating afternoon at The Bridge saw The Blues struggle to reach their top performance levels. Tammy Abraham went closest for Frank Lampard’s men heading against the crossbar before the deadlock was finally broken in the 73rd minute.
The ball fell to full-back Alonso who drove the ball across goal into the far corner of the net as Chelsea continued their development under their new manager.
