Newcastle United faces Chelsea in a game from the 23th round of the Premier League
We are taking our attention to the St. James’ Park in Northern England where Newcastle United faces Chelsea in a game from the 23th round of the Premier League. Our English Premier League predictions about to follow.
Newcastle United approach the 23th round from 13th place in the league. So far Steve Bruce’s team managed to win 26 points, having won 7 of its games. In same time Bruce is going to be worried by his players’ form – Newcastle have won just one point in their four matches.
Last week the Magpies won an important win at a difficult ground to play at. Newcastle visited Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux and went home with a 1-1 draw. Miguel Almiron opened the score for Newcastle, but Leander Dendoncker equalised just 7 minutes later. Until the end of the game there were no more goals scored in the match.
In his first season as Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is aiming to qualify the club for the Champions League again. So far he’s doing pretty well because the Blues are 4th with 39 points won so far. Chelsea have four points advantage in front of the 5th Manchester United, so they are in a good position to keep their place or even improve it.
The last week ended good for Chelsea because the Blues celebrated their 12th win for the campaign. Chelsea hosted Burnley at the Stamford Bridge and didn’t face any trouble to secure a 3-0 win. Jorginho once again showed his masterclass from the penalty spot, while Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi also put the ball behind Nick Pope’s back.
In today’s English Premier League predictions we believe that Chelsea will enter this game as a very slight favourite, but don’t be surprised if the tough Newcastle end the game with at least a point in their record.
