There’s something that doesn’t fit Chelsea about the Tyneside air. For the continuation of their recent good form this weekend, just one win in their last seven visits to Newcastle doesn’t bode too well.
In the past few years, they have been unstuck at St James’ Park so frequently under different administrators that we are approaching hoodoo territory.
In 2013, Chelsea threw away a 2-1 lead under interim manager Rafa Benitez by conceding twice to Moussa Sissoko as Demba Ba, jeered on his return to the northeast barely a month after moving, had his nose broken by the high boot of Fabricio Coloccini.
