With 15 goals at St James' Park, Newcastle have one of the best home scoring records in the Premier League, but they have won just two of the seven games played there. Chris Hughton also has defenders Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson suspended and if his side play in an open manner again Chelsea will be confident of avoiding a third consecutive away defeat in the Premier League. Despite the Champions League victory over the Slovakia champions Zilina in midweek there is still an unease about the visitors at present. Kevin McCarra
