Having given good signals early in the season Signals that have strengthened the confidence of the fans in the sense of the dream of being able to discuss the English title, Chelsea have weakened a little and, with their feet firmly on the ground, the team should even fight for a place that gives them access to the Champions League.
Chelsea vs Newcastle Premier League
For the moment, the team is in the 4th position, with 44 points, four of Tottenham and three more than Arsenal.
Having won a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup in a week ago, which marked the return of Sarri’s side after a surprising home draw against Southampton for the Premier League, the “blues “Came back to have a discomfort, last Tuesday, at Wembley, against Tottenham which they lost 1-0 in the first leg of the semi-finals of the English League Cup.
Newcastle have been below expectations, it was already known that asking for more than fighting for Benitez’s team could be too much, but their record at this point, with only 18 points from 21 matches, is short.
The “magpies” team is the 15th place in the table, with the same punctual record of Burnley and Cardiff. It has two more points than Southampton, the first team below the water line.
After an interesting period with some victories, the Newcastle returned to enter an aspiral of negative results.
Without a win there are five matches, the team comes from a home draw with Blackburn Rovers (1-1) for the FA Cup in a match where they had to win.
For the championship, comes from a defeat in the reception to Manchester United (2-0), after having managed to score off at Watford (1-1).
A game where Chelsea’s favorite status is natural, but I do not consider that, given what Sarri’s side have been up to, the team should have such a low rating, going in to have a fairly easy game ahead of them. Quite the contrary.
Newcastle is a fickle team, it’s true, it’s been among the worst in the Premier League, yet it’s an away-from-home team that scores, this Chelsea is not as cohesive as at the start of the season, comes from a midweek defeat that may have caused some wear and tear this Newcastle after a crazy sequence of games in a short time, while the Benitez men had a week to prepare the game.

On the first lap, Newcastle made life difficult at St. James Park to Chelsea, who ended up winning 2-1.
