The program of the ninth round in the English Premier League on Saturday, November 21, will begin the fight between Newcastle and Chelsea, the forecast for which we propose below.
The Magpies lost to Southampton in the last round (0: 2), after which they went on a short vacation, caused by the matches of the national teams. For Newcastle, this defeat was already the third in the current championship. But in the standings it did not show much. Wards Steve Bruce took 13th place. Although the density in the middle of the tournament is such that, if successful, they can move up significantly.
It must be said that before the failure in the match against Soton, the Magpies lost both times at home. First in the match against Brighton (0: 3), and then in the match against Manchester United (1: 4). Bruce’s charges also have two home victories. They beat the weak Burnley in the current championship (3: 1) and the bloodless losses Everton (3: 1). Note that we missed the Magpies in every home meeting, regardless of the opponent’s status. Although the team scores in the home arena regularly. Only in one of their last nine home games have Newcastle not hit an opponent’s net.
Despite a number of losses, the staffing situation is not that difficult. From the base players, Jonjo Shelvey landed in the infirmary. Dwight Gale, Martin Dubravka and Paul Dummett are also there, but they have not appeared on the field this season. Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Matt Ritchie have minor injuries, their participation in the match is still in question.
Before the pause, the “Pensioners” gained a very good move, demonstrating an enviable performance. The London club have scored at least three goals in their last four official games. So, in the Champions League with a score of 4: 0, Krasnodar was beaten, and Frank Lampard’s wards scored three unanswered goals against Rennu . In the Premier League, Chelsea’s hot hand were Burnley (3: 0) and Sheffield United (4: 1).
Thanks to their last two victories, the Blues are back among the contenders for the championship medals. Now Chelsea have 15 points on their balance sheet and are in fifth place in the standings. Londoners are just three points behind the leading Leicester.
I must say that Chelsea have not lost in the Premier League for six rounds. The team won three matches during this period, and three ended in a draw. And only in the match against Manchester United the Londoners did not score, having scored a goalless draw with the “red devils”. This draw was recorded on the road, where in the current championship Lampard’s players have not yet lost. They also finished the away match with West Brom (3: 3), but beat Burnley (3: 0) and Brighton (3: 1).
Christian Pulisic and Marcos Alonso will definitely miss the match due to injuries. Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva are in doubt.
Newcastle have lost four of their previous six home games in the championship.
In each of Newcastle’s four home games in the current championship, the forecast was “total over 2.5”.
In three of the four matches, “forty” in their home arena in the current championship played the bet “both will score”.
Chelsea have not yet lost away in this season – two wins and two draws.
Chelsea have scored exactly three goals in three of their four away matches.
Newcastle have lost only one of their last seven Premier League games at home to Chelsea.
18.01.20 Newcastle Chelsea ten

05/13/18 Newcastle Chelsea thirty
In our opinion, the fight between Newcastle and Chelsea should be productive. To date, the Londoners are the league’s highest scoring team, with fewer than three goals scored on the road in only one match. The guests have no problems with the attack, so they are unlikely to close in defense.
Newcastle will most likely give up the initiative and try to catch the opponent by counterattacking. At least a goal is scored by a team at home in almost every meeting, but still concedes a lot against top rivals.
Our forecast – total over 2.5 goals for 1.73 in BC 1xbet
Second bet – Chelsea win with handicap (-1) at 1.86
