Chelsea were seven points and seven places behind Liverpool just a month ago, but now the Blues have the opportunity to walk into fourth place with a victory over Newcastle.
Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City over the weekend and thus lost their grip on fourth position. Liverpool are 4th with 40 points, and Chelsea are 5th with 39 points. Even a draw will see Chelsea climb over the Reds on goal difference, and a win will take Chelsea two points above Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Interestingly, Chelsea fans aren’t only targeting 4th place but are now pushing to climb above Manchester United, who were top of the league a month ago.
Manchester United’s title charge has crashed without a fuss, and Chelsea fans believe second place is ours for the taking.
The big question now is, can Chelsea beat Newcastle and maintain a consistent string of performances?
