When the season started, few would have been surprised to hear this game featured the side in fourth and the team in 12th. They would, however, be stunned to find out who occupies those positions

Chelsea had high hopes coming into this season but have stumbled beyond belief, and they will be relieved to have just 90 minutes of pain left to endure before the season comes to a close.

Unfortunately for the Blues, they still have to navigate a high-flying Newcastle side who are back in the Champions League and still in with a shot of finishing third.

Chelsea team news

A hamstring injury ruled Raheem Sterling out of the Manchester United defeat and the winger now occupies a treatment room alongside *deep breath*: Ben Chilwell, Mason Mount, Reece James, Armando Broja, Marc Cucurella, N'Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Marcus Bettinelli and Benoit Badiashile.

Chelsea's young players were the stand-out performers in midweek and that should play into Frank Lampard's thinking as he looks to end this bitterly disappointing campaign on anything other than the lowest of lows.

Chelsea vs Newcastle score prediction

A miserable campaign is coming to an end for Chelsea, but not before another humbling defeat at the hands of a Newcastle team who have blown them out the water this season.

Newcastle do still have something to play for, with third place an unlikely landing spot for Eddie Howe's side, and so the Magpies will be in no mood to take it easy on a battered and bruised Chelsea side who have been screaming for the towel to be thrown in since November.

Chelsea must score nine goals here, by the way, if they are to avoid recording their lowest goal tally of the Premier League era. No pressure.

Prediction: Chelsea 0-2 Newcastle
