Kevin McCarra, The Guardian - Focuses on Newcastle's bad luck at home and gives some nice figures. No prediction but the betting line heavily favors Chelsea.

Toonsy, - Sees a chance for Newcastle given the expected conditions and Chelsea's recent run of poor form. Predicts an 0-2 loss.

Ed Harrison, - Wonders about selection and whether we'll get to watch Good Newcastle or have to endure Bad Newcastle.

BBC Sport - Some good facts and a witty (?) comment about Ancelotti and Newcastle.

Sky Sports - A good overview of the storylines headed into the weekend, although the info about the table is already a bit dated. Predicts a 2-3 loss.

Martin Lipton, MirrorFootball - Predicts against Newcastle once more, which is no surprise, but I can't really say I blame him this week.

Matthew Campbell, EPLTalk - Previews the referees for each match of the weekend and concludes that Newcastle can take advantage of Andre Marriner's reluctance to book players. Also predicts an 0-2 loss.
