Premier League pacesetters Chelsea were forced to settle for point at Sunderland last weekend but they’re 4/7 via Stan James to plunder all three as they head to the North East again, this time to Newcastle (5/1, betway).
Buoyed by a 3-0, midweek success against Spurs, Jose Mourinho’s side are heavily fancied to rack up another victory, however, the Magpies have won their last three at St James’s Park (all 1-0) and so this may not be as straightforward as the odds suggest.
Alan Pardew’s depleted side came from behind to secure a point at Burnley on Tuesday and back in front of the Toon Army they’re decent value to frustrate the Blues team, missing key man Nemanja Matic, by ensuring it’s another stalemate, a result bet365 rate at 10/3.
Having seen their neighbours shackle Jose Mourinho’s team, the Tyneside outfit will believe they can follow suit and BetVictor make them 10/1 to keep it goalless while bet365 go 8/5 about them avoiding defeat on Tyneside.
Newcastle and Chelsea to draw – 10/3 (bet365)
