Forward Islam Slimani is suspended, while Ciaran Clark and Christian Atsu remain sidelined.

He added: "Thibaut Courtois trained today and is contention to play against Newcastle".

The Blues go into the match on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town during the week, as Antonio Conte's men were unable to break down the resolute Terriers and score a victor. How much will Rafa Benitez get to spend this summer? Lose - and they could potentially drop five places and lose £10m!

"We've worked for two years and we've worked very hard to try to build something, to create a base - I think we did this", said Conte, despite being hesitant to judge his own work. We felt we have played 37 games away from home. I think we did this. Last season after a 10th place we won the league.

"We are very comfortable about playing in the Champions League next season". There are only two weeks and then this season will finish. They were eliminated in the last 16 (of the Champions League) against Paris St Germain.

"I'm the last person to judge the moment of the club", he insisted. That wasn't only because of the Chelsea game [last Sunday].

Chelsea's top-four hopes in the Premier League took another dent after they drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

Chelsea got the first chance when a brilliant long ball from Cesc Fabregas picked out Marcos Alonso, who controlled on the chest before unleashing a thunderous shot that Jan Lossl managed to avert. Now, it's important for us to be focused on the Newcastle game. Liverpool have to win the last game against Brighton and it's the same for Tottenham.

Newcastle could win a top-flight home match against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United in a single season for the first time since 1968-69.

"Because whatever happens, you have to give the team a motivation regardless of whether they go to the World Cup or stay at home".

Toure, 34, has won three Premier League titles and four domestic cups during his eight seasons at City.

"We don't know, at the end of the season, if we have friendly games", he said. They've also scored 18 fewer goals.

Conte, who will attend Andrea Pirlo's testimonial on 21 May, suggested he was in the dark as to Chelsea's end-of-season plans. But they weren't able to score one goal more than our opponent.
