Chelsea vs Newcastle United: prediction for the Premier League Week 28

Two disappointed grandees will clash in London on Monday!

As neither club is going to be satisfied with the results of the season, The Magpies will visit Stamford Bridge in the last game of Week 28. Match will begin on Monday, March 11, at 9pm CET.

Chelsea

Losing the EFL Cup final to Liverpool was a nail in the coffin for Chelsea's season, as the Blues are stuck in the middle of nowhere in the Premier League standings.

Before the next spending spree is going to happen, Chelsea still needs to finish the season, as there are 12 games to be played. With an average pair of offense and defense and only one win in the past five games, it will be tough to compete for the European competition berth. If there is a time to start the rally, it is this Monday.

Newcastle United

Ravaged by injuries, Newcastle United fell out of the Champions League during the group stage, dropped out of the medal race and now can only hope to finish strong, revamp the lineup during the summer and try again.

While the defense is suboptimal, the Magpies still field the top-5 attack in the Premier League, as they will visit Stamford Bridge in an attempt to sweep the season series.

Prediction ⚽️

Technically, it is not going to be a sweep even if Newcastle wins, since Chelsea survived in the EFL Cup courtesy of an extra time goal, but a β€œ4-1” blowout in the first round still looms large.

The Magpies had some back and forth games recently, while Chelsea barely survived against both Leeds United and Brentford. Due to all of that, we will side with the road team not losing in London with 1.96 odds πŸ”₯.
