Chelsea 21/20 to beat Newcastle to nil in Saturday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea win to nil
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Knowing that they have a real chance to extend on their stellar start to the season, Chelsea will make the trip to Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Newcastle might have been given a huge boost off the pitch earlier in the month, they are in the midst of a Premier League nightmare. In their opening nine top-flight matchups so far this season, they are yet to record a single victory, with four draws against five defeats, scoring 11 and conceding 20 in return. Managing to muster just a points tally of four from a possible 27, the Magpies open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 19th and already sat three points adrift of safety. As for their recent run of results, just about managing to scrape a point away at Crystal Palace last weekend, Newcastle have failed to win any of their 10 competitive contests since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Likewise, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts suffered back-to-back 2-0 loss against Chelsea last season.
As for the visitors, eventually extending on their EFL Cup run earlier in the week, Chelsea have only continued on a real purple patch both domestically and in Europe. In their opening nine Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, one draw and just a single defeat, scoring 23 and conceding three in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 22 and opening this weekend’s fixtures holding a one-point buffer at the top of the table, it should also be noted that the Blues hold the best-defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen on Premier League duties picking up a 7-0 win against Norwich on home soil, Chelsea have won their last three top-flight fixtures by an aggregate score of 11-1. Handed a real chance on their travels this weekend, we’re backing a routine away victory for the title contenders.
