Newcastle vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
For Chelsea this weekend is the last away game against Newcastle United on the program. Tottenham Hotspur narrowly won two weeks ago at St. James’ Park and the expectation is that Chelsea will also have trouble with Newcastle.
Newcastle United took a point in the first two Premier League games this season. At Newcastle United they had of course hoped for more and that was in the first two games also in. Rafael Benítez seems to want to play football with Newcastle United this season and that does not benefit the results now, but probably in the long run. The question is whether Newcastle United can meet the expectations of the supporters, because the supporters were very spoiled last year with a tenth place.
The Magpies lost in the first weekend with 1-2 from Tottenham Hotspur. Yet Newcastle United had earned more then, but it was not the Benitez team against Tottenham. Last week, an away match against Cardiff City was scheduled and that was a game that Newcastle United actually had to win, but The Magpies did not get any further than a goalless draw. Kenedy missed a penalty in the injury time for Newcastle United, but it would not have been right if the Brazilian had used the penalty. The 22-year-old Kenedy had to be sent off the field in the race earlier, something that happened to his colleague Isaac Hayden.
Chelsea is one of the front runners after two games. If Chelsea still has 36 matches then Maurizio Sarri has delivered a world performance in his first season. The Italian himself will also realize that Chelsea is not the biggest favorite to win the Premier League. Winning the Europa League seems a lot more realistic for Chelsea, but it remains to be seen how serious Sarri takes that tournament this season. Moreover, the question is whether the Chelsea selection is broad enough to perform both in the Premier League and in the Europa League
Perform this Chelsea already in the Premier League. After a convincing 0-3 victory over Huddersfield Town, Arsenal won 3-2 last week. Pedro and Álvaro Morata took Chelsea ahead within twenty minutes. Nevertheless, Chelsea gave away that lead even before the halftone signal. The Blues finally went on to win the field by a goal from Marcos Alonso in the 81st minute and the victory was completely justified. Against Arsenal it only became clear again that the defense of Chelsea is still the Achilles heel of the club. Where Liverpool has Virgil van Dijk and Manchester City has an Aymeric Laporte Chelsea has to do with Gary Cahill, that’s a world of difference.
