Chelsea v Newcastle United

Newcastle United are still without Ciaran Clark (knee), Christian Atsu (knee) and Islam Slimani (suspension).

Kenedy is also unavailable due to the loanee being ineligible to face his parent club.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has trained and is in contention to return from a back injury.

David Luiz (knee), Danny Drinkwater (calf) and Ethan Ampadu (ankle) remain out. 

Did you know?

Newcastle United are unbeaten in their last four home Premier League matches against Chelsea and have scored at least twice in each fixture (W3 D1). Only two teams have scored at least twice in five successive PL home matches against the Blues: Liverpool, with six between 1992 and 1997, and Leicester City, with five between 1998 and 2002.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last four PL meetings with Newcastle (W3 D1), netting 12 goals in the process.

This will be the third time these sides have met on the last day of a PL campaign. Only Chelsea v Everton has been played more often as a final fixture, four times.

Chelsea are responsible for the biggest final-day victory in PL history, beating Wigan Athletic 8-0 to secure the title in 2009/10.
