Chelsea come to this clash unbeaten by three away games in the league (2 wins and 1 draw) and is undefeated by four between league and cups (3 wins and 1 draw). Newcastle United’s last home game (0-3 defeat against Leicester) marked their second consecutive league defeat at St. James Park, the stadium where a 4-1 draw against Rochdale in the FA Cup this week. Manquillo, Colback, Dummett and Gayle are absent in a Newcastle which has perhaps Yedlin, Schar, Muto, Saint-Maxim and Ki Sung-Yueng. In Chelsea van Ginkel, Pulisic and Loftus-Cheek will be out, while Kanté and Alonso remain in doubt.
Chelsea have won 6 of their last 7 games against Newcastle United.
Chelsea have won the last three comparisons (always 1-0) with the Magpies.
Chelsea have won 3 of their last 4 games of the season across all competitions.
We risk a Chelsea victory also taking into account the fact that there are many absences and many players who are not at their best in the ranks of a Newcastle United who during the week also had to support the additional efforts of the FA Cup.
