Newcastle United vs Chelsea | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Newcastle United take on Chelsea in the final round of Premier League matches this weekend, with the home side looking to end a run of four consecutive defeats in the top-flight. However, with Chelsea still harbouring hopes of finishing in the top four when the final whistle blows, it promises to be a tough 90 minutes for the hosts at St James’ Park.
Newcastle United and Chelsea meet on the final day of the season at St James’ Park, with the visitros knowing that nothing but three points will do if they are to have any hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. However, with the home side hoping to consolidate their position in the top-half of the standings, it could well be a tight affair in the North East. The away side are the undoubted favourites for victory in the betting odds from bookmakers, however there are still plenty of attractive markets worth checking out before kick-off. For those still unsure of who to back, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Newcastle United.
Newcastle lost their fourth match in a row against Watford last time around, with manager Benitez undoubtedly looking to give fans at St James’ Park something to shout about after a disappointing few weeks. The hosts will be without Jesus Gamez and Christian Atsu against Chelsea, while former loanee Islam Slimani has returned to parent club Leicester City. The hosts have scored just 36 goals in the Premier League this season, one of the lowest tallies in the top-flight.
Chelsea were held to a draw by Huddersfield Town in midweek, with Antonio Conte’s side now in great danger of missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League. Both Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud are likely to return to the starting eleven after they started on the substitutes bench last time around, while goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could return.
Head to Head
The two teams have met 30 times in the past, with Chelsea having won 18 of such encounters, as well as recording six draws in the process. Antonio Conte’s side ran out 3-1 winners at Stamford Bridge earlier this season, with Eden Hazard scoring twice, while the Blues also defeated Rafa Benitez’s men also won when the duo met in the FA Cup in January this year.
