Chelsea vs Newcastle Match Preview and Team News
With third place Leicester hosting Liverpool, who are fourth, on Saturday afternoon, there is a potential opportunity for Thomas Tuchel’s side to move above Liverpool if the Reds fail to win. Standing in Chelsea’s way is a resurgent Newcastle team who are looking to steer further clear of the relegation zone. Chelsea remains unbeaten in four games since Tuchel’s arrival took 10 points from their first 12 on offer under the German coach’s tutelage. The Blues drew with Wolves in Tuchel’s first game but have won three league games in a row since with wins over Burnley, Tottenham, and Sheffield United. Chelsea advanced to the FA Cup quarter-finals in midweek and have a Champions League last-16 tie with Atletico Madrid on the horizon. Christian Pulisic plays fantastic and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many teams are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is a tremendous player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Two wins in three games have seen the Magpies move to 16th with 25 points, 10 points above the bottom three, but they will be without talisman Callum Wilson for a number of weeks. Newcastle bounced back with a 3-2 win over Southampton last weekend to remove any immediate danger of falling into the drop zone. However, they will be without some key players, including center-back Fabian Schar and striker Callum Wilson for the foreseeable future. A 2-0 win in their last away game at Everton was just their third win on the road this season and their second since the opening weekend. Newcastle had lost five league games in succession on the road prior to their trip to Goodison Park and failed to score four of those matches. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Joelinton is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
