ALAN PARDEW makes one change to his Newcastle side that lost at Wigan for tonight’s Premier League fixture with Chelsea.

 

Danny Simpson misses out through injury so James Perch starts at right back as Newcastle look to maintain their push for a Champions League place.

 

The Magpies are otherwise unchanged from Saturday with Hatem Ben Arfa keeping his place alongside Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba in attack.

 

Gabriel Obertan and Sylvain Marveaux return to the bench following injury and could be called upon if Pardew needs to freshen things up.
