Newcastle are in for a very, very long day.

Our club sure do feel real bad losing so much.  They're going to take a good hard look at themselves and somehow end up better... at least so we're told.  It's hard to figure out exactly how this better is going to come about, but we do know this:

Aleksandar Mitrovic will return for us and will likely replace a (now reported) ailing Papiss Cisse.

Diego Costa will miss out for Chelsea.  This is good news for our defense (to a degree) and to their faces as well as he won't be around to try to headbutt them.

Chelsea will still have 11 players more likely to score a goal than anyone on our side.

Newcastle have made taking points off of Chelsea a habit in recent times, but let's be honest with ourselves... this is going to be a very, very long day.
