Chelsea vs Newcastle: Predictions
In five games played under Tuchel across all competitions so far, Chelsea remain unbeaten winning four, drawing once and conceding just one goal along the way. As a result, the Blues have moved back into fifth-place in the Premier League, just one point adrift of Liverpool in the fourth and final Champions League spot. That said, Chelsea haven’t scored more than two goals in a match under the German as of yet, and Tuchel will be looking for more joy in front of goal from the likes of Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud as they continue their push toward the top-four.
Newcastle, meanwhile, are doing their level best to drag themselves out of relegation trouble once and for all this season, winning two of their last three games, with a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace sandwiched between victories over Everton and Southampton. Steve Bruce’s men remain 16th, but are now 10 points clear of trouble and a shock result here would go a long way toward banishing those relegation demons for the rest of the campaign.
