Chelsea vs Newcastle – Seven straight home wins for hosts
Chelsea have won their last six Premier League games at Stamford Bridge and they should have no problem extending this run against Newcastle.
Alongside Chelsea’s latest dominance at home, they have made a habit of beating Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in recent seasons.
Chelsea have won six of their last seven Premier League home games with Newcastle, with the Magpies failing to score on six of these visits.
Goals have been generally a problem for Newcastle against Chelsea in the top flight, as they have drawn blanks in five of their last seven outings with Chelsea both home and away.
Newcastle may have little to play for this season, but that should not prevent them wanting to end the campaign on a high, particularly in their final away game as they have triumphed in just one of their last eight games on their travels.
However, they do already have a victory to their name at Stamford Bridge this season when winning 4-3 in the Carling Cup.
It is 10/1 that Newcastle beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the first time in the Premier League, with Carlo Ancelotti’s team 2/9 to seal victory.
The draw is available at 11/2 and would help Newcastle in their battle to finish in the top half of the Premier League table this season.
Newcastle’s scoring troubles have already been touched upon and their chances of hitting the target will also not be helped by the loss of Kevin Nolan.
Nolan has proved a vital source of goals from midfield, but misses the trip to London after undergoing ankle surgery.
Chelsea are 5/4 to beat Newcastle to nil, with the safer bet being the 11/10 that the Blues keep a clean sheet.
