The upcoming match between Chelsea and Newcastle United will be something to look out for as the bottom of the table takes on the leaders on 30th Oct at St James’ Park. So let us have a look at the preview of Newcastle United vs Chelsea.
Newcastle United vs Chelsea Preview
Newcastle’s premier league run has been dreadful so far. The Magpies haven’t registered a win so far in 9 games and are sitting uncomfortably at 19th. With the exit of Steve Bruce after the Saudi takeover, the team hasn’t changed much yet. A win against Chelsea will put them two places up in the table and will increase their survival chances. Their recent game against Crystal Palace ended in a 1-1 draw after Calum Wilson got a goal back.
Chelsea FC on the other hand is having an amazing run in the league. They are at the top of the table with just a point above Liverpool and will like to extend it today a bit more. Chelsea’s recent form has led them to shatter down Norwich as they ramped 7 past the ‘The Canaries’. Chelsea also won their latest EFL match against Southampton on penalties. These wins will surely keep Chelsea motivated and are confident to keep their winning run alive.
