On Monday, Chelsea hosts Newcastle in the Premier League to change the tenor of public opinion under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Blues manager acknowledged that he did not receive the “love” of the supporters after last weekend’s disappointing 2-2 draw with Brentford, during which distinct chants called for Jose Mourinho’s return.

Pochettino, on the other hand, remains steadfast in his determination to persuade Chelsea supporters that he is the ideal candidate for the position.

Betting tips: Chelsea x Newcastle

Check out our predictions of the day for Chelsea vs. Newcastle

Prediction 1: Chelsea x Newcastle / Both teams to score

Chelsea have only secured a single victory in their last five league matches, away at Crystal Palace.

They did, however, grind out a draw against Manchester City, and they have now won three straight Premier League games after drawing at Brentford last week.

Newcastle has performed poorly away from home this season, defeating eight of thirteen matches (62%).

Despite their resounding 3-0 victory over Wolves last weekend, their recent debacle at the Emirates is sure to cast doubt on their ability to earn three points at Stamford Bridge.

After 90 minutes, two of the last three competitive head-to-head meetings between Chelsea and Newcastle have been in no doubt.

The game will likely conclude in a deadlock without the hosts taking advantage of playing at home.

Prediction 2: Chelsea x Newcastle / Full time draw

With just one loss in twelve games played at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will enter this encounter with high confidence. On the other hand, Chelsea’s defense may have trouble against inconsistent Newcastle, who may exploit defensive weaknesses.

We should expect a thrilling and intensely fought battle since both sides have good scoring chances. As a result, we think Chelsea and Newcastle will play a full-time draw.

Prediction 3: Chelsea x Newcastle / Anthony Gordon to score anytime

With two goals less than leader Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon is Newcastle’s second-highest scorer in the Premier League.

The English winger tends to find the net against Chelsea and has scored twice in his past three league appearances.

He opened the score in a similar match at the close of the previous season and put the icing on top in a 4-1 triumph at St. James’ Park in November last year. It should be mentioned that Gordon is also serving as a penalty taker for the Magpies.
