Chelsea head to Newcastle United on Saturday in the Premier League’s early kick-off.

The Blues have started to find form of late and look a real threat in attack, being the league’s top scorers so far and winning back-to-back league games before the international break.

Frank Lampard will hope his side can show consistency now ahead of a demanding stretch of fixtures domestically and in Europe.

Newcastle have been alternately impressive and poor, with injuries and a lack of midfield options hampering them in some games.
