Chelsea vs Newcastle Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
Antonio Conte’s side have been quite underwhelming in recent weeks and that was emphasised in midweek after they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the semi-final following an aggregate defeat to Arsenal. The Blues will be hoping they can increase their chance of silverware in this competition by beating a Newcastle side they have already won against this campaign. The Toon Army eased past Luton in a 3-1 win in the last round, and we expect Rafa Benitez to make a few changes at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as his mind will certainly be on Premier League survival.
Chelsea vs Newcastle Predictions
The Blues endured a dry spell in front of goal a couple of weeks ago and failed to score in 270 minutes of football. An emphatic 4-0 victory over Brighton put the scoring worries to bed but we think they’ll find it difficult to break Newcastle down at the weekend. Antonio Conte’s side have struggled to break down the likes of Norwich, Leicester and Arsenal on home turf recently and we wouldn’t be surprised to see this match have a similar pattern to those previous matches. Our first Chelsea vs Newcastle prediction for this FA cup clash on Sunday is going to be a HT/FT selection. We are going with Draw H/T & Chelsea F/T, and this selection is best valued at 7/2 with Unibet.
Chelsea vs Newcastle: To be Carded Tip
Jonjo Shelvey has started 13 matches for Newcastle this campaign and has been booked on three occasions. He has been shown the red card twice. The Englishman is renowned for his passing ability, but he does have a short fuse and is always vulnerable to receiving a card. Shelvey was booked in the Magpies’ last round of the cup against Luton, and this weekend he’ll have to put a shift in against a strong Chelsea midfield. Ultimately, we can see Shelvey putting himself in the referee’s notebook once again on Saturday and we are backing him to be carded at odds of 12/5 with Betfair for our Chelsea vs Newcastle predictions.
Chelsea vs Newcastle Correct Score Prediction
We think Newcastle will adapt a similar style to how Norwich played when they faced Chelsea in the previous round. The Canaries took a slightly more defensive approach against a Chelsea side that had been rotated with. We expect Antonio Conte to rest his key players this weekend, and obviously this will play into the hands of Newcastle. However, we do think that Chelsea’s attacking persistence will eventually pay off and we think they’ll secure a narrow victory over Rafa Benitez’s side. Our final Chelsea vs Newcastle betting tip for this match is going to be a correct score prediction, and we are backing Chelsea to win 1-0 at odds of 15/2 with Paddy Power.
Chelsea vs Newcastle Betting Preview
The home side are strong favourites for this encounter and you can back them at a price of around 4/9 this weekend. Meanwhile, if you think there could be a potential upset, then Newcastle are best valued at 13/2 with Ladbrokes, while the draw is 4/1 with bet365. Dwight Gayle struck first at Stamford Bridge back in December, and if you’re going against our selections, you can get the Englishman to score first at a price of 10/1 with BetStars.
