Chelsea vs Newcastle: The inaugural match of the Premier League’s 15th round will take place in Stamford Bridge…
Where Chelsea will host Newcastle.
Chelsea occupies the 3rd place on the Premier League with 29 points conquered, getting 9 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses so far.
Curiously, the Blues have gotten more points away from home than on their own stadium. However, it is important to note that the less positive results in Stamford Bridge happened at the beginning of the season, where they only won 1 of the 3 first rounds they played in front of their fans.
I’ve already talked about the Londoner side here, who struggled a lot when the midfielder Kanté got injured, he who is the most balancing piece of Conte’s formation.
After his return, the Blues have played 5 matches, getting 4 wins and 1 draw at Anfield Road, stadium where they conceded the only goal of this period.
Newcastle is in 12th place of the Premier League with 15 points, having 4 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses so far.
On the 7 away matches they already played, the Magpies were only able to win once, more precisely at Swansea, who are in penultimate place on the league table.
The team managed by Rafa Benítez is going through a poor moment of form, having only gotten 1 point out of the last possible 15.
Their defensive sector has been miserable, and the team has conceded 9 goals on the last 3 rounds.
Chelsea vs Newcastle – Betting Tip and Prediction:
During the week, Chelsea hosted and defeated Swansea only 1-0, but Antonio Conte has proceeded to make some changes, with the main one being benching the team’s key player Eden Hazard.
This Saturday, at Stamford Bridge, I believe that the Blues might take advantage of this Newcastle’s poor moment of form to get a safe and comfortable win.
