Boss: Chelsea full of confidence ahead of vital Newcastle clash

Roberto Di Matteo says Chelsea are in excellent spirits ahead of their vital Premier League match against Newcastle.

The games are coming thick and fast for Di Matteo’s side, who are in the finals of the Champions League and FA Cup as well as being involved in a fight for a top-four finish.

But they showed no signs of fatigue while walloping neighbours QPR 6-1 on Sunday and are full of confidence ahead of the Magpies’ visit.

Di Matteo said: “There’s a good spirit at the moment in the dressing room and that’s connected to the positive results we’ve been getting lately.

“There’s not much time between games, which is challenging but also exciting because we have so many targets to play for and it’s better to be like this than to not have targets.

“Results are good so we are pleased with that. The players have been really working hard to get those results and we have to continue that because ultimately we have not achieved anything so far.

“We are in a good moment. We have a good momentum going and the players are enjoying themselves when they go onto the pitch.”
