Newcastle United v Chelsea Preview, Premiership, Saturday 2nd November 2013

Alan Pardew and Newcastle United fans were left speechless after Papiss Cisse one on one chance with Manchester City’ keeper Costel Pantilimon was superbly saved just moments before City themselves opened the scoring deep into extra time in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night. It eventually see the exit of Newcastle United as Man City finished the game 2 – 0 with Newcastle seen as the better side for the majority of the match.

With the convincing win over Arsenal in the League Cup this week now over with, Chelsea star Cesar Azpilcueta as said his team mates and coach are purely concentrating on their own performances and not those of rivals Arsenal and both Manchester clubs. The Spanish full-back opened the scoring on Tuesday night which was his first ever goal for Chelsea since joining from Marseille in 2012.

Newcastle United v Chelsea Team News

Newcastle United Team News:

Much talk this week about Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote as he narrowly managed to avoid a prison sentence due to buying a fake Belgium driving license before swapping it for a full UK one, and has instead received a seven month suspended sentence from Newcastle Crown Court. With him pleading guilty it persuaded Judge James Goss to suspend the sentence for 18 months which will allow the 27 year old Ivorian to complete 1800 hours of unpaid work as punishment.

Chelsea Team News:

Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne has admitted he may need to look elsewhere to get more first team action as he started on Tuesday and aided his team with the win over Arsenal, but he has yet to start a Premiership match since August and speculation has now mounted that he could be leaving the club come the new year.

Newcastle United v Chelsea Head to Head Statistics

Surprisingly enough the head to head results over the last 5 games are very even with both teams grabbing 2 wins each and the other a 2 – 2 back in 2011. But with the form taken into consideration you would have to give Chelsea the advantage here even with them being away from home.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

With 17 goals being scored over the last 5 meetings it gives us a good average of 3.4 goals per game and we haven’t seen a goalless draw since back in 2008. So with that said we should hopefully see some goals grace the net come Saturday Evening.

Newcastle United v Chelsea Recent Form (Left to Right)

Newcastle United: L L D W L

Chelsea: W W W W W

Newcastle United are struggling for form right now and it wouldn’t of helped with the loss to Sunderland their local rivals, a team who grabbed their first Premiership win at the expense of Newcastle United. They did however hold Manchester City to a draw in the Capital One Cup over 90 minutes, but in extra time lost focus to concede two goals late on which equaled the clubs exit. Chelsea however are in incredible for right now and have seen off Manchester City with a late winner by Torres and then also knocking out Arsenal from the League Cup.

Newcastle United v Chelsea Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

With Newcastle Uniteds recent results taken into consideration I just don’t feel the loss to Sunderland at the weekend would of helped too much with the clubs confidence, and with Chelsea seeing off Manchester City and Arsenal last week with convincing wins you would have to place your money safely on an away with by Chelsea. But what to put down as a correct score? With the Chelsea midfield playing so well and the new lease of life by Spanish striker Fernando Torres you would have to say this games got at least 2 to 4 goals in it shared among both sides. So I am going for a 3 – 1 win by Chelsea and another for Hazard to score anytime during the 90 minutes if the Belgium international plays.
