So far this season, Chelsea have performed well in the league, with four wins and one defeat in eight games played as they sit in fifth place on 15 points. The Blues are also the top scorers in the league on 20 goals, however, problems at the back have caused issues to the results early on in the campaign.
Frank Lampard’s men head into this fixture in great form on a current win streak of four games where they have netted 14 goals whilst conceding once. As well as this, they are unbeaten in eight games in all competitions.
Newcastle United approach this match in wavering form, with two wins and two defeats in their last five games as they sit 13th in the table. Although, the Magpies have recently seen success as their side defeated Everton, who were title contenders at the start of this season.
In this fixture, last campaign, Steve Bruce’s men came out on top in a 1-0 win despite the stats showing that the Blues were the more dominant side with 70% possession and nearly triple the number of shots taken. However, with the far more improved side of Chelsea this season, there should be a big change, especially with some of the Blues forwards performing well in front of goal in the international break.
Therefore, odds of Chelsea to win and over 3.5 goals in the match is now priced at 5/2.
