Prolific in attack and increasingly sturdy at the back, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Blues to ease to a convincing victory over Steve Bruce's men

Newcastle will be hoping to pull off a shock win when they travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League clash (AEDT).

Steve Bruce’s team secured a surprise 1-0 victory over Manchester United before the international break, having already upset Tottenham in London this campaign.

However, those results account for their only two victories in the eight opening matches, and they are 10.00 outsiders with Sportsbet to come out on top here.

The Blues are currently enjoying a four-match winning streak, and are 1.25 favourites to maintain that run with another victory.

Only one of the previous 15 encounters between this pair has resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 5.50 available on them cancelling each other out in this one.

N’Golo Kante, Reece James and Andreas Christensen both suffered injuries while on international duty, joining Emerson and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the treatment room. Matteo Kovacic and Antonio Rudiger will both face late fitness tests.

Florian Lejeune and Matt Ritchie are both sidelined with injury, while Isaac Hayden will serve the second match of his three-game suspension.

While the Magpies’ resilience in the victory over Manchester United was impressive, they were helped by the lack of cutting edge in the opposition attack.

This is unlikely to be an issue for Frank Lampard’s men, who have failed to score just once in their last 11 matches and have hit the net 15 times in just the most recent four.

In contrast, only rock bottom Watford have scored fewer than the five goals that Newcastle have mustered in their eight league games so far.

Chelsea vs Newcastle United predictions

Considering Chelsea have also tightened up at the back recently to concede just twice in four matches, odds of 1.83 seem generous on them proving too strong at both ends of the pitch and winning by at least two goals.
