Newcastle vs Chelsea: Match Stats
Confidence should be sky-high in the Chelsea camp having hit Norwich for seven last weekend and it is hard to oppose any of the big three right now. Newcastle though do have attacking talents and a home crowd that will expect them to go for this game so back the visitors to win and both teams to score.
Mason Mount grabbed a hat-trick last weekend, is on a number of set-pieces and appears to have penalties so looks worth backing in the anytime scorer market. Newcastle have issues at the back and have not kept a Premier League clean sheet this season.
