The Blues squandered a 2-1 lead at St James’ Park on Saturday as they were pegged back by a resurgent Newcastle, who sealed a 3-2 win.
This Saturday’s showdown with Wigan is a must-win for the west Londoners as they bid to keep their top-four hopes alive, with fourth-placed Tottenham now just a point behind the Blues.
Benitez is yet to win over the majority of Chelsea fans – and guiding the club into next season’s Champions League will be viewed as the bare minimum this season.
Wigan, meanwhile, will be desperate for points, with Roberto Martinez’s side in the relegation zone with 13 games left to play.
So with so much at stake, why not book your place at Stamford Bridge this Saturday today?
