Chelsea find its game. Londoners face criticism, rightfully so, as a team with a powerful lineup languishes in the middle of the league table, occupying the tenth position. They are ten points behind the top four. In the last round, the team delivered a powerful performance at home against Manchester City, drawing 4-4. The aristocrats leveled the score only in injury time thanks to a converted penalty. Three players will miss the game due to injuries, and six remain questionable.
Recently, the opponents haven't delighted with high-scoring football in their encounters, with fewer than three goals scored in five out of six games. Newcastle managed to win at home last season, with a 1-0 victory and a 1-1 draw. Both clubs likely planned to compete for the top 4 but are far from their goals. If Newcastle was initially considered a slight favorite, the chances of success for both teams are now assessed as equal. Determining a winner is challenging, particularly as the form of the opponents after the break is uncertain. We'll take a risk and bet on both teams to score.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – yes.
