At the end of the Premier League Saturday, an anniversary game awaits the fans. For the 50th time, Newcastle United (13th place, 26 points) and Chelsea Football Club (4th place, 39 points) meet in the Premier League. The Magpies won twelve of the previous duels (twelve draws, 25 Chelsea wins).
Newcastle vs Chelsea Free Betting Tips
Chelsea only won more Premier League games against Tottenham (29). Newcastle have already suffered 25 Premier League bankruptcies against the blues (the fourth highest value). The Londoners were only able to claim one win from their recent six Premier League away games with the Geordies (1-1-4). Since April 2009 there have been no two away wins in a row for the West Londoners.
Maurizio Sarri achieved a victory in the north-east of England last year. Antonio Conte, José Mourinho (three times) and Rafa Benítez each went away empty-handed. Betting providers are likely to hold an away win between Newcastle and Chelsea, according to odds.
The current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will trust the away strength of his team and hope for another victory. This would be important in the fight for the Champions League places. The advantage over Manchester United is currently five points. Newcastle gained new confidence during the week in the FA Cup replay. The Magpies had previously been without a win for four games in a row.
Newcastle – Statistics & current form
Newcastle reached the fourth round of the FA Cup for the fourth time in a row during the week. Beyond that, however, it has not been possible since 2006. The 4-1 home win in the replay against third division Rochdale was a duty. In addition to progressing, the 40-million-record Joelinton record was gratifying. The Brazilian ended a 20 game losing streak.
Miguel Almirón also had such a dry spell. Shortly before Christmas, the Paraguayan met for the Magpies for the first time. Now Almiron scored three competitive games in a row. Among them in the recent Premier League match in Wolverhampton.
The Magpies have not won any of their last four Premier League appearances (0-1-4). Only Bournemouth (five) and bottom of the table Norwich (nine) have an even longer negative run. The last win was against Crystal Palace in December (1-0).
Newcastle have conceded only twice in their last 14 league matches. In addition to Palace at Sheffield United (2-0). However, Newcastle suffered an unparalleled bad luck for injuries. At times, up to 14 players failed.
Newcastle have lost the last two home games and conceded five goals. The Magpies conceded as many goals as in the previous seven appearances in St James’ Park. Newcastle face three bankruptcies in a row for the first time since October 2018.
However, the Geordies scored four points from their recent two home games against established top six teams (1-1-0). Previously, there were only three points from seven encounters against the top teams (1-0-6). Between Newcastle and Chelsea the prediction of the betting base recommends the double chance (1X).
The duels against Chelsea have so far not been a celebration of joy for Steve Bruce. The Magpies coach has won just one of his 22 Premier League matches against the West London club (1-5-16). The only win was with Sunderland in November 2010 (3-0). Only against ex-club Manchester United (17 bankruptcies) Bruce lost more often as a coach.
Bruce has been at home without a win against Chelsea (0-2-8) for ten matches. Bruce shares this negative record with Martin O’Neill (ten matches without winning Arsenal and Man United). Javier Manquillo, Jack Colback, Paul Dummett, Dwight Gayle are injured.
DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schär, Yoshinori Muto, Allan Saint-Maximin and Ki Sung-Yueng are questionable. Captain and defense chief Jamaal Lascelles is fit again.

Chelsea – Statistics & current form
Chelsea have 39 points after 22 game days. At the same time last season, the Blues had added eight points (47) – still a strong result. Finally, a transfer ban was imposed on the Londoner in the summer and Eden Hazard, the best player in recent years, moved to Madrid.
Chelsea was particularly convincing abroad. The blues scored the second most away points (22). Only Liverpool was even more successful (28). Nevertheless, the Lampard squad only managed a zero game abroad at Tottenham (19 goals in eleven games).
Only one of the recent five Premier League matches was lost (3-1-1). There were two bankruptcies in a row in December. Only two of the most recent ten matches were lost away (7-1-2). Therefore, the odds of the betting shops between Newcastle and Chelsea clearly speak for a success of the blues.
The West Londoners allowed only 69 shots on goal by the opponents. Only Liverpool has an even better score (55). At the start of the season, Chelsea lost three Premier League games in a row to teams from the bottom half of the table. Meanwhile, the Lampard-Elf has been unbeaten for three duels of this kind (2-1-0).
Four Englishmen scored 20 Blues Premier League goals (Abraham, Mount, Barkley, James). Chelsea was last higher in the 2012/13 season (five games were responsible for 23 goals).
As a player, Frank Lampard lost none of his 17 matches against coach Steve Bruce (13-4-0). Only John Terry has an even higher rating in the Premier League (18 | 14-4-0) – curiously also against Bruce. N’Golo Kante fails again. Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are missing.
