Reasons For Chelsea vs Newcastle United predictions & Betting Tips
Given recent form, it’s not hard to see why the Blues are at such a short price. At home, they should win comfortably against a team who have not won in their last five.
However, under former Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez, Newcastle will provide a difficult test and won’t roll over easily. It could be a tight match, but we expect the Blues to prevail at 1.23 with Unibet.
We know what to expect from the Spanish manager. He has experience winning at Stamford Bridge with Liverpool, and will set his team up to be organised and dangerous on the counter attack.
The Magpies are out of form at the moment. They showed good resolve to come from 2-0 down to salvage a draw at West Brom on Tuesday, but this is a step up in opposition.
Chelsea will be desperate for the win in the early kick-off to put the pressure on the teams around them. Leaders Manchester City are eight points clear – 11 ahead of the Blues – ahead of their meeting with West Ham on Sunday.
Chelsea vs Newcastle United Form
Chelsea face Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. Both teams need the win for different reasons, with the Blues looking to close the 11 point gap on leaders Manchester City in defence of their Premier League title.
Chelsea’s form has improved in the last month or so, with Antonio Rudiger scoring the winner in their latest win against Swansea City on Wednesday. They have won 7 of their last 9 matches in all competitions.
Chelsea Form: WDWWWL
Newcastle United Form
Manager Rafael Benitez was coming under a little pressure after a four match losing strike, although Tuesday’s fightback from 2-0 down at West Brom has brought him some time. A win at Stamford Bridge is a big ask, though.
