Newcastle United vs Chelsea preview: team news, expected lineup, betting tips & match prediction

Newcastle vs Chelsea Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips 12/11/2022

Chelsea will be bidding to bounce back from successive Premier League defeats when they travel to an in-form Newcastle United side in Saturday’s late start.

A four-game winless run in the league has seen the Blues drop down into seventh spot in the table, but Newcastle are up in third, with the Magpies picking up 27 points from their opening 14 matches.

Match preview

Chelsea were in EFL Cup action on Wednesday evening, suffering a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City to exit the competition in the third round.

Graham Potter has managed to lead the Blues into the knockout round of the Champions League, with the capital giants finishing top of Group E ahead of AC Milan, boasting a record of 13 points from six matches.

However, Chelsea’s recent league form has been disappointing, picking up just two points from their last four matches, losing their last two against Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal.

The four-game winless run has seen the capital giants slide down into seventh position in the table, six points behind Newcastle ahead of this match, although they have a game in hand on Howe’s side, and a victory this weekend would still leave them in a relatively good position heading into the break.

Chelsea have won each of their last four Premier League games against Newcastle, including a 3-0 victory at St James’ Park last October, but it would be fair to say that the Magpies are a completely different side at this moment in time, and it is sure to be a tough examination for the six-time English champions.

N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell and Reece James will again definitely miss out at St James’ Park.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is also unlikely to be involved due to a foot injury, while Jorginho remains a doubt with the problem that kept him out against Man City in the EFL Cup.

Potter will make alterations from Wednesday’s affair, with Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all set to come back in.

Chelsea could switch to a back four for this match, with Cesar Azpilicueta coming in at right-back, while Trevoh Chalobah could get the nod alongside Thiago Silva in the middle.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:

Mendy; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, T Silva, Cucurella; Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic; Sterling, Havertz, Mount; Aubameyang

Prediction

We say: Newcastle United 1-1 Chelsea

In previous seasons, we would be tipping Chelsea to win this, but it is so difficult to back against Newcastle at the moment, while the visitors will not enter this match in the best of form. Both managers would be relatively pleased with a point on Saturday, and we can see the spoils being shared at St James’ Park.
