Reason For Chelsea vs Newcastle Betting Tips
A considerable measure of uncertainty was cast over Chelsea’s chances at the start of the season as they kicked the campaign off with a stun defeat at home to Burnley, however they have enhanced dramatically from that point forward. Be that as it may, with Manchester City in such fine shape they are as yet looking like major untouchables to retain their Premier League crown.
Midweek saw them take a hard battled three points from Swansea at home, an outcome which makes it four wins and a draw in their last five aggressive excursions. In the Premier League they have won five of their last six and haven’t lost since the center of October.
This has pushed The Blues up to third in the Premier League table, yet they are 11 points adrift of Manchester City at the highest point of the table and are just three points inside the best four. Fortunately for them they have an extremely winnable merry fixture list, facing West Ham, Huddersfield, Southampton, Everton, Brighton, and Stoke before 2017 is out. Antonio Conte appears to have dealt with his barrier as well after some early lapses this season. They have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five Premier League matches.
Newcastle appeared to be fit as a fiddle only a few months ago. They were on a three match winning streak and Mike Ashley finally affirmed that he was attempting to offer the club. Be that as it may, things have hit a difficult time for the recently advanced side.
The Magpies’ 2-2 draw at West Brom in midweek makes it one win, three draws, and five defeats in their last nine excursions in the Premier League. This has seen them slide down to a still respectable twelfth position, yet they are just five points clear of the drop zone and watching extremely out of shape right now.
Away from home Newcastle have just won once this season, losing four times and drawing twice. Three of their four defeats have seen them fail to locate the net, so it looks far-fetched that they’ll get on the scoresheet against a protectively resurgent Chelsea. We’re backing Chelsea to Win to Nil for our main forecasts.
We are expecting a fairly low scoring game however. Four of Chelsea’s last five league games have seen less than four goals, so backing a Chelsea Win and Under 3.5 Goals looks a decent decision along with a 2-0 rectify score forecasts.
