Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is aiming to upset Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the second time in less than four months.
Two Papiss Cisse wonder-strikes secured a stunning 2-0 victory for the Magpies in May, just weeks before the Blues became champions of Europe.
Chelsea have strengthened since then with Eden Hazard making a big impact in the early weeks of the season but Pardew insists there will be no surprises for his Newcastle team on Saturday.
Pardew said: "Chelsea are the European champions. They won the Champions League and they have improved since then - Hazard looks a great buy. We know him well, so we know what to expect from him.
"There are no surprises in that team, but I think in some ways, we can match them and give a good showing there."
Newcastle have had a busy week, travelling to Greece to take on Atromitos in the Europa League on Thursday, drawing 1-1.
But the Toon boss will not rule out recreating a famous win even if he admits that Stamford Bridge is a tough place to get a result.
Asked if that win was among the best of his career, Pardew said: "Yes, for sure.
"I had never won at Chelsea in any capacity. I have been there many times and it's a very difficult place to win, so that would go down as one of the great victories.
"But certainly with this team, I think we are a little bit stronger than last year."
