Chelsea vs Newcastle: Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

Chelsea vs Newcastle
Chelsea vs Newcastle, Premier League, Stamford Bridge

The match is over.
Score: 1-0.

Chelsea are big favourites to win this one – but Newcastle shocked everyone, especially Manchester United, with their victory in the last set of matches and will be looking for another positive result here.

Our Betting Tips

Newcastle may have beaten United last time out but it has not been a very good season so far for Steve Bruce’s team – and they could struggle at the Bridge.

Frank Lampard has been forced to play some of his younger stars this season because of the transfer ban – but they have stepped up remarkably well and seem to hold no fear of opponents.

Chelsea should be really up for this after the international break – and it would not be a surprise for the home side to go into an early lead and not look back.

Statistics

Head to Head

Chelsea hold the upper hand in this fixture and won both games between the two last season. Newcastle have not come away from Stamford Bridge with even a point since 2012.

Stats

  • He may not have been the favourite for the Golden Boot at the start of the season but Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham leads the goal race at the moment with eight strikes.
  • In comparison, Newcastle have really struggled to find the net at all. They have only managed five goals in the league so far – only bottom of the table Watford have a worse record.
  • Not a lot was expected of this Chelsea side before the start of the season due to the transfer embargo. But this youthful squad have played some good football and only Liverpool and Manchester City have scored more goals.
  • Newcastle may find themselves at the wrong end of the table but the team have been effective in defence at times. They have managed three clean sheets in just eight games – including one apiece against Spurs and Manchester United.

Our Prediction for Chelsea vs Newcastle

Chelsea to win

Newcastle have surprised a few people this season with the teams they have beaten – but have then looked atrocious in other games. This could be a tough game for Steve Bruce’s men away from home.
