Chelsea vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Chelsea were able to sneak into the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 2-0 win over Southampton during the weekend. After a goalless first half in which Chelsea struggled to create openings, Alvaro Morata came up with a brace in the second half to hand a crucial for the blues, who went on to lose 1-0 against Spurs in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final. Newcastle United have been forced into a replay by Blackburn, who picked up a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park in the third round of the FA Cup. Bradley Dack continued his impressive form for Blackburn by silencing the home crowd in the 56th minute before a late penalty from Matt Ritchie helped force a replay for Newcastle.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Newcastle have a terrible record when it comes to playing against London teams in the capital. The Magpies lose consistently in their trips down south and this trend should continue with Chelsea reasonably strong in a number of areas. However, Chelsea have been unable to convert their superiority in terms of keeping the ball into converting chances. Newcastle are expected to defend deep with plenty of players guarding the goal. The lack of space is expected to result in a Chelsea win along with under 2.5 goals.

Eden Hazard has an exceptional record when it comes to scoring against Newcastle after managing seven goals in just 11 matches against this opponent. Even though the goals from the Belgian has declined since he started playing as a false nine, the opportunity for Hazard to score in the game would be greater if Chelsea get a quick opening goal. I would pick Hazard to score anytime.

Chelsea win and under 2.5 goals – 21/10

Eden Hazard to score anytime – 8/11

Chelsea saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

Chelsea scored over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played against Newcastle United

Chelsea Preview

Maurizio Sarri is in a spot of bother with Chelsea unable to create many opportunities in front of goal. There has been a distinct lack of understanding and creativity in the final third of the pitch. As the club prepare for further loss in creativity in the form of Cesc Fabregas’ departure, there are signs of Chelsea spending big in the January window in order to address the various issues and back the manager. The misfiring forwards Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata continue to provide major headaches for Sarri, who has been using Eden Hazard in a false nine position.

Chelsea Team News

Alvaro Morata (hamstring), Daniel Drinkwater (knock), Marco van Ginkel (cruciate ligament), and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back) are unavailable for Chelsea.

Newcastle United Preview

Rafa Benitez continues to keep Newcastle outside the bottom three places but the Magpies are only a couple of bad results away from dropping back into the relegation places. Such has been their struggle for points throughout the campaign and it is largely down to a lack of regular goalscorers. Salomon Rondon has been able to provide a valuable addition for Newcastle this season and the forward is now up to 5 goals – more than twice the figure managed by any other Newcastle player this season.

Newcastle United Team News

Federico Fernandez (hip), Sung-Yueng Ki (hamstring), Mohamed Diame (hip), and Karl Darlow (elbow) are missing from action for Newcastle.
