It’s the final weekend of Premier League games before the World Cup kicks in and we’ve a decent-looking clash on paper as Newcastle, who start this week in third with 27 points are bang in there with a chance of a top-four finish – which they are around 7/4.

They welcome Chelsea to St James’ Park in the 5:30pm offering this Saturday and with the Blues back on 21 points and coming here off a 0-1 home defeat to Arsenal, then Graham Potter’s men will be looking to get back on track here.

The match betting favours Newcastle at 2.30, with the Draw 3.40 and Chelsea 3.00.

Last season this clash ended 0-3 to Chelsea, but it’s fair to say that Newcastle are a much better side this season and have only lost once in the league from their opening 14 games.

Chelsea have also won the last 4 head-to-heads ‘no nil’, but again the recent head-to-head stats for this game have to be taken with a pinch of salt based on the Newcastle takeover and current form.

In fact, the Magpies have also only scored one goal in their last six vs Chelsea, but you feel that might change this weekend with the Toon Army having scored 28 goals this term already – that’s an average of 2 goals a game.

Both teams DIDN’T score in the last 6 head-to-heads, so if you feel this might continue, then the 2.05 on offer here could be value, while 5 of the last 6 meetings went UNDER 2.5 GOALS, which is on offer at 1.90.

The scoring markets see Newcastle’s Callum Wilson at 5.50 (1st) or 2.62 (anytime), plus Chelsea’s Aubamayang at 7.50 (1st) or 3.50 (anytime) figuring high up the lists, while Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron at 15.00 (1st) or 6.50 (anytime) could be a player to have on your radar after a good start to the season.

Overall, it’s a game that Newcastle will fancy their chances of winning, with Chelsea a bit ‘up and down’ at present, but the Under 2.5 Goals at 1.90 looks a fair option here – a bet that’s paid out in 83% of their last meetings.
