Today at St. James’ Park, two of the richest clubs in the Premier League will square off against each other as Newcastle United hosts Chelsea.

Newcastle is in third place after earning 27 points from its first 14 games, while Chelsea has dropped to seventh after a four-game losing streak in the league.

No Premier League team has a higher net spend since the contentious takeover of Newcastle last year than the Magpies. Chelsea came under new ownership just last May and splashed in excess of £250m on transfers last summer, a division-high.
