The Blues welcome Newcastle United to the Bridge on Saturday
17 Oct 2019 | Posted by: admin | Categories: news

Chelsea will resume their surge up the log on Saturday when they welcome Newcastle United at the Bridge. Chelsea (14)is 10 points behind log leaders Liverpool (24) after eight matches played.

Newcastle before the international break scored a solitary goal to break the back of Manchester United and will be buoyed to face a resurgent Chelsea under Frank Lampard. Chelsea has some injury concerns we hear and will wait probably until the last possible moment to decide on the match 11. Players like Kante, Christensen, Kovacic had some niggles over the last few days. There is amble back up for these players in the match 11. Let’s hope Tammy keeps on scoring goals as he stays in the hunt for the golden boot.


Chelsea is fifth on the log behind Leicester on the same points (goal difference), one point behind Arsenal (15) and two points behind defending champions Manchester City (16). Out of the top ten on the log, the goals against us is 14, followed by Bournemouth (13), Spurs (12), West Ham and Arsenal (11). Our defensive line needs to stop leaking goals and we need to stop drawing as well.

Whilst scoring goals have not been a problem for Chelsea with 18 goals to date, coming from the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Willian, Tomori, and Jorginho. Leading the goal-scoring race to date is Man City (27), Liverpool (20), Leicester and Spurs (14), Arsenal and Bournemouth (13) with West Ham and Burnley scoring 11 goals each.

In our last seven matches in all competitions against Newcastle at the Bridge we won all of them and scored 20 goals and conceding three. Their last win against us came in May 2012 when enigmatic Alan Pardew was still their manager. The omens look good for us to continue our winning ratio against them.

Wherever you are watching the game on Saturday lets cheer on our team to victory. Good luck to the “Bokke” against Japan in their quarter-final match of the Rugby World Cup 2019 being played in Japan.
