Chelsea vs Newcastle Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-0.

The Premier League returns this weekend following the international break with in-form Chelsea playing host to Newcastle, who are now outside the relegation zone following a recent victory over Manchester United.

Predictions

Chelsea have won four matches in a row and are in good form – bouncing back from their home defeat against Liverpool last month.

Frank Lampard’s Blues have responded to that setback with wins over Grimsby, Brighton, Lille and Southampton.

Newcastle ended a run of four league games without a win as they edged out Manchester United at St. James’s Park in their last outing.

The Magpies have struggled early on this season but have recorded impressive victories over two of last season’s top six – as they also notched up a victory at Tottenham earlier this season.

The hosts will be favourites to make it five wins out of five due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Newcastle.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be relatively comfortable – a 4-1 triumph for the West London side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

Chelsea matches have averaged four goals per game in the Premier League this season – more than any other side in the division apart from Man City. This is set to be a match that follows such a pattern – Newcastle have shipped eight goals across their past two away matches and conceded three at Norwich earlier this season, and this is one of the best online betting odds for the matchday. Over 4.5 goals is 4/1 at 888Sport.

Linked into the previous bet, the Magpies are likely to find the net due to Chelsea’s defensive vulnerability but the Blues should still have more than enough to secure a reasonably comfortable victory. Odds of 21/10 of such an outcome are worth attention, available at 10Bet.
