Newcastle United Preview – Can Newcastle rekindle earlier form?

It’s now 4 matches without a win for Newcastle United who now reside in the bottom half of the Premier League in 13th place and now find themselves closer in proximity to the relegation zone than the top five as The Magpies are separated by just 5 points from third from bottom club, Aston Villa, ahead of this evening’s clash against Chelsea.

Recent defeats to Manchester United 4-1 away from home along with back-to-back defeats at St James’ Park to Everton and Leicester City have done Steve Bruce’s side few favours in recent times, but at least his side did pick up a point in a 1-1 draw away at Wolves last time out.

Newcastle had previously put together a promising, if stubborn, 7-match sequence without defeat at home prior to their recent losses to Everton and Leicester City, but this upcoming visit from Chelsea looks a tough assignment for the hosts despite holding home advantage.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Chelsea Preview – Can Chelsea further strengthen top four spot?

The visitors hold a useful looking 5-point cushion ahead of 5th placed Manchester United prior to their trip up to the north-east to take on Newcastle United as Chelsea have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches overall in the Premier League.

A worrying sequence of 4 defeats within a 5-match period earlier had threatened to scupper Chelsea’s plans of achieving a top four finish in the top flight as The Blues had slipped to defeats against Manchester City, West Ham, Everton and Bournemouth, but Frank Lampard’s side have responded in positive fashion.

Recent victories over Tottenham, Arsenal and Burnley (the former two wins being away from home) have helped revive Chelsea’s bid for Champions League football next season, while an away record of 7-1-3 25/19 includes being unbeaten in their last 3 matches on their travels.
