Newcastle and Chelsea are set to produce an open encounter in their English Premier League fixture at St James’ Park. Neither team has been convincing at the back this season and Saturday’s clash is tipped to favour the attackers.

Newcastle Form


Newcastle earned a 1-1 draw at Wolves in their previous Premier League fixture with Miguel Almiron getting their goal. 

Steve Bruce’s men followed up that result with a 4-1 victory over Rochdale in an FA Cup third round replay. Matty Longstaff, Miguel Almiron and Joelinton were on target for the Magpies.

Despite Tuesday’s victory, the Magpies have not been at their best in recent weeks and head into Saturday’s clash winless in the last four Premier League matches. They have lost three times in that run, including back to back home defeats to Everton and Leicester City.

Steve Bruce’s men have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four Premier League matches.

Newcastle News


Captain Jamaal Lascelles and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey both made returns from injury against Rochdale and could be included in the starting lineup on Saturday. 

Chelsea Form 


Chelsea were rampant in their last Premier League fixture as they claimed a 3-0 home victory against Burnley. Jorginho opened the scoring from the penalty spot while Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi were also on target. 

Following a difficult festive period, Chelsea are having a fine time in January with three wins and a draw in their last four matches. Frank Lampard’s men are also unbeaten in their last three away matches, a run which includes back to back victories over Arsenal and Tottenham.

Chelsea have battled defensive problems all season and travel to St James’ Park with just one clean sheet in their last 11 Premier League away matches.

Chelsea News


Midfielder N’golo Kante missed the win over Burnley through injury and remains a doubt for Saturday’s match. Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marcus Alonso also remain unavailable for the Blues due to injury.

Newcastle vs Chelsea Head to Head


Chelsea have a 60-46 advantage with 35 draws from 141 previous matches against Newcastle. There has been over 2.5 goals in seven of the last eight meetings while the Blues have claimed six wins in the last seven matches.

Chelsea earned a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge with Marcus Alonso’s second half effort proving to be the difference.

Newcastle vs Chelsea Betting Odds


Newcastle are outsiders for the win at odds of 5.75 while a draw is set at odds of 4.50. Having claimed six wins in the last seven meetings, Chelsea are priced at 1.50 to triumph on Saturday. 

Newcastle produced over 4.5 goals in their last home matches and a similar outcome is valued at 5.00. Over 3.5 goals is paying 2.75 while over 2.5 goals is offered at 1.72 at bet365.

Newcastle vs Chelsea Match Up 


Newcastle have struggled to keep things tight at the back lately and are without a clean sheet in their last four Premier League matches. They have some quality in attack with Miguel Almiron, who has scored in his last three matches. 

Chelsea have also found things difficult at the back but often balance it out by being prolific in attack. Tammy Abraham has 13 Premier League goals this season while Willian also troubles defenders with his pace and trickery.
