Tip Chelsea - Newcastle
Another week goes by and again we have Rafael Benitez up against a former club. His Newcastle United team continue to be in big trouble and are only two points above the relegation zone. Stil no big signings and no sign of a wealthy new owner either. They have gone five league and cup games without a win and the only victory in the last nine was at bottom of the table Huddersfield Town. If they do manage to find someone who wants to join them this month, it'd be handy if he was a striker. Newcastle have only scored 15 league goals this season and until that changes they will always struggle. But for three wins in November they'd be in the bottom three and they somehow need to find some form but have some tough fixtures on their way.
Chelsea will be pleased there's no VAR being used in this game after what happened at Wembley on Tuesday. They are fourth in the table and doing their best to fight off Arsenal in their bid to return to the Champions League. Scoring has been a problem of late and this isn't expected to be a goalfest against Newcastle United. The Carabao Cup defeat at Tottenham ended a run of four league and cup games without defeat. At Stamford Bridge, they have just the one defeat this season and the tip here is for Chelsea to get the three points.
Key points Chelsea - Newcastle
Chelsea have only lost one home game this season.
Newcastle United have only scored 15 league goals this season.
Newcastle United have only won one of their last nine games.
Conclusion Chelsea - Newcastle
Chelsea can't afford a slip-up in this game as they try to keep in the top four. The goals haven't been flowing of late but the same applies to their opponents Newcastle United. Chelsea have only lost one home game and take on an out-of-form Newcastle who are battling relegation. The tip is for a home win.
