LAST HOORAH

12th May 2018

The body language said it all last week, after Chelsea failed to beat Huddersfield Town. Antonio Conte looked like a condemned man and this could be his last game in charge of Chelsea.

The layers expect an away win, but recent form is hardly solid and Newcastle is no easy place to go

Newcastle will be without on-loan midfielder Kenedy as the Brazilian is ineligible to face his parent club.

Forward Islam Slimani is suspended, while Ciaran Clark and Christian Atsu remain sidelined.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is available after recovering from a minor back injury.

Conte could rotate his side after the 1-1 midweek draw with Huddersfield, with Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud likely to earn recalls.

Raffa Benitez has done a great job, and Newcastle have never looked like getting relegated. They have won seven of their home games and look big odds - 28/5 to make it eight.
