Chelsea vs Newcastle Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews
England Premier League | Stamford Bridge | 19th October 2019 15:00
Chelsea can continue their good form as they host Newcastle in a Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are on a four-match winning run across all competitions, driven by the impressive Tammy Abraham who is backed to score in another comfortable victory.
Chelsea were rampant in their last Premier League fixture as they ran out 4-1 winners at Southampton. Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount continued their excellent start to the season with goals in the first half while N’golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi were also on target. The Blues have been excellent since their defeat to Liverpool, winning their last four matches across all competitions. Frank Lampard’s men are priced at a minimal 1.29 to win in Saturday but given Tammy Abraham’s run of eight goals this season, I am backing the striker to score in a home win at odds of 1.90.
Midfielder N’golo Kante is a doubt for Saturday’s clash while Antonio Rudiger remains sidelined with a groin problem. Tammy Abraham is likely to continue as the lone man in attack with Willian and Mason Mount providing support.
Newcastle claimed a shock 1-0 victory at home against Manchester United last time out in the Premier League. Matty Longstaff’s effort on 72 minutes proved to the difference for the Magpies. It was only the second win of the campaign for Newcastle, who have struggled this season. Steve Bruce’s men have lost three of their last four away matches and are not favoured to win on Saturday at odds of 9.50 with a draw valued at 5.50.
Chelsea are among the leading scorers in the Premier League this season with Mason Mount, Willian and Michy Batshuayi all getting goals. Tammy Abraham is the top scorer with eight goals and will be the one to watch on Saturday. In contrast, Newcastle have struggled in attack with the goal against Manchester United their first in three matches. Joelinton has found the net just once in eight appearances and should find things difficult at Stamford Bridge.
