Maurizio Sarri has had a convincing start to life at Stamford Bridge with his side winning their first two games of the season.
Chelsea celebrated a 3-0 win against Huddersfield in their opening game and then a late goal from Alonso secured a 3-2 victory against Arsenal last weekend.
Rafa Benitez has seen his team struggle so far after losing 2-1 against Tottenham and then drawing with Cardiff after Kennedy missed a last-minute penalty.
When the two sides met at St James Park last season Newcastle won 3-0 and theyll be hoping for the same kind of performance again.
