Another weekend of English Premier League action is upon us. Newcastle United, who sit in 11th place, are trying to work their way into the top half of the table with a win against Chelsea. Despite being the home team, getting three points will be a challenge. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has never won at Newcastle.
“We know we have one of our most difficult matches of the season but we will try,” Mourinho said, via ESPN FC. ”Going top is not important. It’s important to go in the right direction and we feel we are improving – the quality of our game is good, the results at the moment are fantastic.
“We won every match in every competition in October including Schalke away, Arsenal away, Manchester City at home. They were very difficult matches and we won every one.
“But being top or not to be top at the moment is a question of one or two points, it’s not important, although it’s better to be first than fifth.”
