Newcastle v Chelsea betting tips:
Chelsea were having an absolute nightmare start to their season, but after a win against Arsenal last Saturday, and a midweek victory in the League Cup, will this be the tonic needed to kickstart Chelsea's season?
Chelsea have now won three in a row and if they can maintain this form with a win against Newcastle, the media might have to find another club to denounce as in crisis. However, despite their return to form, controversy is never far away when Chelsea are concerned.
The ludicrously angry Spaniard Diego Costa could have been sent off more than once against The Gunners, and quite rightly received a ban after the FA decided to charge him after the match. The Newcastle defence will be glad they won't have to face Costa’s aggressive tendencies, but either Loic Remy or Radamel Falcao look set to deputise for the suspended Spanish International.
Newcastle have had an even worse start to the season than Chelsea, but it's no more than you'd expect from the Geordies who seem to be in a perpetual state of crisis. Only their North East rivals Sunderland have had a worse start to the season.
After a promising summer transfer window, hopes were high amongst Magpies’ fans. Mike Ashley was splashing the cash and investing in real Premiership quality players, as opposed to foreign rejects. Georginio Wijnaldum arrived to St James’ Park along with the highly rated Florian Thauvin and Alexander Mitrovic to add much needed quality to a poor Newcastle squad.
However, things are never simple with Newcastle United. Wijnaldum scored on his debut, but Alexander Mitrovic showed a childish temper in the opening few matches which finally boiled over against Arsenal with a ridiculous stamp that saw him sent for an early bath.
Steve McLaren has failed to bring any confidence to the team and after 3 straight League defeats and a catastrophic loss to
Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup, the Magpies are well in their way to another failed season.
The last thing Steve McLaren needs is a visit from the English champions.
Given their form of late, Chelsea are clear favourites for the match. Newcastle have lost their last 3 at home and this poor run is not going to end against an improving Chelsea side.
The first of my Newcastle v Chelsea betting tips is for The Blues to win. Odds of 4/6 can be found with PaddyPower.
Chelsea seem to have improved their defending, finally. I don't think Newcastle will be able to break through given the Geordies lack of confidence.
The second of my Newcastle v Chelsea betting tips is for Chelsea to win to nil. Odds of 9/5 can be found with BetVictor.
I see this as a comfortable Chelsea victory and it should prove to be the catalyst for Jose Mourinho to push his team forward in salvaging a title defence which is already on the ropes.
The last of my Newcastle v Chelsea betting tips is for Chelsea to win 2-0. Odds of 15/2 can be found with Boylesports.
