Chelsea vs Newcastle United Live Reddit Score 13/03/2022
A couple of months ago even the most optimistic of Newcastle fans would have had little hesitation in marking this one down as a home win. The Eddie Howe revolution had yet to gain any momentum with an embarrassing FA Cup defeat at home to Cambridge United adding to the club’s Premier League misery. A run of six wins and a draw from their past seven games has banished any relegation fears and they can now approach the trip to Chelsea with genuine hopes of recording a first win at Stamford Bridge since 2012. Stephen HollisHowe admitted he had a very tired dressing room after the battle at St Mary’s so he could rotate his squad at Stamford Bridge. With Fabian Schar suffering from a tight groin, it may be time to rest the 30-year-old.
If so, Jamaal Lascelles could get his first start since the win against Everton. He was ill against Aston Villa and it’s been Dan Burn and Schar ever since. The pair have been outstanding so Lascelles will need to be at the top of his game. Emil Krafth gave all he had in the mid-week win. He was forced off late with a facial injury. With just three days of recovery, the Swede may also be in need of a break with Javier Manquillo more than capable to come in at right-back. The other change is Joelinton returning after missing out with a sore groin on Thursday. Bruno Guimaraes was handed his first start in Big Joe’s absence. His injury is not serious and with over a week since his last start, he could be back in the team tomorrow. Therein lies a selection problem for Howe. Bruno did his chances of a second start no harm in his full debut at St Mary’s. It will be difficult to drop Jonjo Shelvey but an away clash at Chelsea doesn’t really suit his skill set.
Chelsea is 7-2 against Newcastle United since December of 2017, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Sunday. They will face off against one another at 10 a.m. ET at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has a defense that allows only 0.7 goals per game, so Newcastle’s offense will have their work cut out for them. Chelsea was able to grind out a solid win over Norwich City on Thursday, winning 3-1. Meanwhile, it was all tied up 1-1 at the half for the Magpies and Southampton on Thursday, but Newcastle stepped up in the second half for a 2-1 victory. Their wins bumped Chelsea to 16-3-8 and Newcastle to 7-10-10. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Chelsea and Newcastle clash.
helsea vs Newcastle: The Blues will try to remain focused on the field of play, as the club’s future is swiftly decided off the field, when they host the Magpies at Stamford Bridge on Sunday (Watch live at 10 am ET, on Peacock Premium). Sunday’s game will mark Chelsea’s first home game since owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK government. Since the Russian oligarch began the process of relinquishing control of the club, all the Blues have done is win three of four games in all competitions, with their lone defeat coming via an 11-round penalty shootout in the League Cup final. As the club’s finances are effectively frozen, budgets slashed and nothing but new uncertainty emerges from every day that passes.
the players have remained steady-handed, focused only on what they can control, as they try to finish the job of finishing in the top-three of the Premier League for the first time in three years. As for Newcastle, the 2021-22 season has never been better. Eddie Howe overcame some early struggles, the club’s new owners made a few key signings in January, and suddenly Newcastle are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League games (6W-3D-0L). Victories over three mid-table sides — Aston Villa, Brighton and Southampton — proved they can do more than simply beat up on relegation fodder, after three of their previous four wins came against sides currently in the bottom-six.
Chelsea welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. Thomas Tuchel’s side can go on their longest league winning run under the German since he took charge if they clinch all three points against the Magpies. Chelsea have won their last four league outings, their joint longest winning run, and will be looking to add another victory to back up their wins over Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Norwich City. Newcastle have come back fighting since Eddie Howe was appointed and now find themselves 10 points clear of the relegation zone.I expect Allan Saint-Maximin to be available but not to get the start. He is short on match sharpness after his recent calf problem. Ryan Fraser has filled in superbly on the left. While Fraser could due with a break, he may get the start with Allan coming on in the second half, if available.
