Chelsea pay a visit to St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon to face Newcastle United in our final Premier League fixture of the season.

Antonio Conte’s men have an FA Cup final date with Manchester United to look forward to, but cannot take their eye off the ball (so to speak) as they visit Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle this weekend.

Finishing inside the top four looks to be nothing more than a pipe dream now following Wednesday night’s stalemate with Huddersfield Town. However, it’s not yet impossible.

If Liverpool lose to Brighton at Anfield, and Chelsea are able to take three points from our fixture against Newcastle, we will finish fourth. Any other variation of the two results, we’ll have to settle for Europa League.

Thibaut Courtois is expected to replace Willy Cabellero in the Chelsea net after recovering from a back injury. There are no fresh injury concerns. Here’s our we predict that Chelsea will lineup against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.
