Newcastle and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Newcastle have enjoyed an incredible rise since being bought out by Saudi owners just over a year ago and they can move into third place ahead of the World Cup break with a win over Graham Potter’s stuttering Chelsea.

Newcastle vs Chelsea Predictions

  • Four of Newcastle’s last six Premier League wins also saw both teams score.
  • Both teams scored in four of Chelsea’s last six competitive outings.
  • Newcastle are unbeaten as pre-match betting favourites this season (W6, D2).
  • Callum Wilson has four goal contributions across his last three appearances.

Newcastle’s Champions League dream burns brightly

A victory in the final game ahead of the World Cup enforced winter break will ensure a third-place spot for Newcastle over the Christmas period, and the fact that they are favourites to defeat the 2020/21 European champions Chelsea just goes to show how far they have come.

Eddie Howe did well to considerably rotate his squad for the midweek cup game and still grind out a win against Premier League opponents Crystal Palace. Attention swiftly turns back to the Premier League as Newcastle look to open up a nine-point gap over fellow top-four hopefuls Chelsea.

No defeats since August suggests that Newcastle can do exactly that, as well as their currently unbeaten record in the league when priced up as favourites. In fact, only three sides have a stronger win rate as Premier League favourites than Newcastle’s 75%, indicating that they’re not to be taken lightly.

Chelsea will make this interesting

Chelsea certainly have the quality on paper to match Newcastle all over the pitch, yet a run of just two wins across their last seven matches suggests that the Pensioners have some work to do.

The visitors will not spend Christmas in the top-four regardless of the result here, although a victory could prove pivotal in their pursuit of a Champions League place when all is said and done.

Having only failed to get on the scoresheet in two of their last seven away games, Chelsea should at least have enough to trouble the hosts with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount patrolling the flanks.

Opponents today, teammates tomorrow

Although Dan Burn was controversially left out of the England World Cup squad, Newcastle’s Callum Wilson and Chelsea’s Sterling and Mount will link up after the game to head to Qatar.

With 11 Premier League goals between those England stars this term, they could give the fans a taste of what is to come in this Premier League encounter, though we are siding with Newcastle to emerge victorious in the win & BTTS market.

Rounding out our selections is a 3-1 Newcastle win in the correct score market along with Wilson to score anytime, a result which would perhaps see Wilson push for a first England start since 2018.
