Newcastle United vs Chelsea Prediction: Premier League Match on 30.10.2021
Chelsea will be looking for a fourth straight win in the Premier League on Saturday as they travel to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle United. Can the Blues overcome the Toon and inflict a second defeat on the Geordies since their Saudi takeover?
Premier League Preview
Chelsea are certainly looking every inch like a team that is capable of winning the Premier League title this season, as they sit a point clear of Liverpool coming into this round of fixtures on Saturday.
The Blues have won their last three in the league, and have the best defensive record in the English top-flight, having conceded just three times this season. Chelsea maintained their record last weekend with a very straightforward 7-0 victory over Norwich at Stamford Bridge.
Mason Mount scored a first professional hat-trick in that win, while fellow Englishman Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and Ben Chilwell also scored in the win. The Blues were without Romelu Lukaku in that win, and they will likely not be fazed playing without their leading striker once again this weekend.
Newcastle fans still find it hard keeping the smile off their faces following the Saudi-led takeover. Fan confidence in the new owners grew again last week, as Steve Bruce was relieved of his duties. However, a change in manager did little to help the Toon pick up a first win of the new season, as they were held by Crystal Palace.
Very little changed for the Magpies in terms of tactics, and they were fortunate to come away from the game with a point. Callum Wilson scored a stunning overhead kick to save a point. However, there is certainly troubling times ahead for the new owners, as it looks a struggle for the Magpies to stay in the Premier League.
Newcastle United vs Chelsea Head to Head
Newcastle’s record against the Blues isn’t great. They have lost five of their previous six against the Blues, with their only win coming in a 1-0 success in January last year. Chelsea have also picked up wins in two of their last three visits to St James’ Park.
Newcastle United vs Chelsea Prediction
Newcastle have serious issues at home, as they have conceded more goals and kept fewer clean sheets in home games than any other club since the start of last season. Chelsea look to be hitting their stride in the league, and a bet on them winning this game is a solid choice.
