Newcastle vs Chelsea betting tips and predictions for the 5:30pm kick-off in the Premier League on 18/1/2020 and a 6/1 same game multi tip.
Chelsea’s form has been inconsistent at the start of the new year, but the Blues are where they want to be, five points clear of fifth. Meanwhile for Newcastle, it’s four without a win as the gap above the relegation zone narrows.
Newcastle are enduring their longest winless run in the Premier League so far this season (4).
Only three sides have scored fewer than Newcastle’s 21 goals, each with 20.
Liverpool are the only side to have taken more points away from home than Chelsea’s 22.
The Blues have been rather inconsistent in the last few weeks. Wins over Tottenham and Arsenal were sandwiched by dropped points against Bournemouth, Southampton and Brighton. Even so, Chelsea have taken ten points from their last five games and heading in the right direction.
Newcastle on the other hand are winless in four. Three straight defeats have seen the threat of relegation loom larger of Tyneside. The Magpies managed a 1-1 draw away at Wolves last time out but their struggle for goals continues. Record signing, Joelinton, has yet to add to his single goal scored back in August.
Tammy Abraham has had a fantastic debut season as Chelsea’s first-choice striker. 13 league goals in a creditable return and after four without finding the net, Abraham looks to be back in form. The Englishman has netted two in his last three league matches and managed an assist in the game where he failed to score.
Abraham is central to Chelsea’s attack and has been heavily involved and taking plenty of shots. His form away from home is particularly impressive with eight of his 13 league goals coming on his travels. With confidence high, Abraham is a good bet to be first on the scoresheet.
Chelsea had no problem dispatching of an out of form Burnley last weekend as they ran out 3-0 winners. It could be a similar story yet again, given Newcastle’s recent record. The Magpies have conceded two or more in three of their last four and have been involved in games with three or more goals in each of those.
Chelsea’s last five have involved two or more goals with the Blues two or more against Tottenham, Arsenal and Burnley in recent matches.
