The Premier League resumes following the international break, and Newcastle United will be looking for another big scalp after knocking off Manchester United when they travel to Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard was expected by many to fail in the Stamford Bridge hot seat, but he has got his young side in the best possible form at this early stage of the season.
His decision to promote Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount into the first team picture has had immediate benefits, with Abraham scoring nine goals already this season.
Meanwhile, Mount has successfully filled the void left by Eden Hazard at this early stage and has been called up to the last two England squads.
There is still a very long way to go before Lampard’s tenure is evaluated, but the early signs are very good. Their last performance against Southampton was a brilliant one, as they ran out 4-1 winners.
Abraham and Mount were on the score sheet for the Blues, while there were also goals for N’golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi.
Their away form has been brilliant since their opening day defeat against Manchester United, and if they can transfer that into their home games, then they could be front runners for a Champions League finish.
Newcastle meanwhile got a second win of the season in their last outing against Manchester United. It was a highly emotional day for the club, which saw them start with Matthew and Sean Longstaff in the heart of the midfield.
The Toon battled for every ball in their 1-0 win, and their defence very rarely looked troubled against a lacklustre United side.
The only goal of the game was scored by Matthew Longstaff, as he had a dream start to his Newcastle career.
However, if they can replicate that at Stamford Bridge, it would be an astonishing turn of events that would pull them clear of the relegation zone.

Chelsea vs Newcastle EPL Betting Tips
Newcastle’s win last time out was a brilliant result for them, but they look unlikely to match that with a second away win of the season.
The Blues are in a very good moment, and everybody seems to be pulling in the right direction. Chelsea could record a big win in this fixture.
