The key battles from this weekend’s biggest fixtures…
Newcastle v Chelsea: Diego Costa v Fabricio Coloccini
Newcastle’s excellent recent form has been based on a solid back line, and Coloccini has been at the heart of that.
The Magpies will want to keep up their excellent home record against Chelsea, and the battle between Costa and Coloccini will decide the course of the game.
The Brazilian striker was suspended in midweek and so will be fresh and eager for a physical battle with the Argentine centre-back.
