Chelsea v Newcastle EFL Cup predictions: Tips, odds and team news

Chelsea and Newcastle meet in an EFL Cup quarter-final showdown at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 19 December (8pm, UK time).

Chelsea vs Newcastle odds

It’s so far been an up-and-down first season in charge of Chelsea for Mauricio Pochettino who is chasing a first trophy in English football. The former Spurs boss had reached Wembley in 2015 but was second-best against José Mourinho’s Blues. Eddie Howe can relate. Newcastle reached last season’s final only to watch Manchester United celebrate. The Magpies though come into the last eight having eliminated both Manchester clubs. This will also be a repeat of a recent meeting at St. James’ Park in which Newcastle ran out 4-1 winners.
