Chelsea vs. Newcastle United Match Analysis and Prediction

Chelsea aims to make it five wins in a row under Thomas Tuchel in all competitions as they play host to rival Newcastle. The match schedules for Monday at Stamford Bridge, with kickoff at 11 pm.

Thomas Tuchel is transforming the blues, who are currently on an impressive run of form. The side moved up to the fifth position in the table standings, while Newcastle eased relegation fears with three wins in their previous outings.

Life under Tuchel started with a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers on January 27. However, Chelsea has won on four occasions since then with their 1-0 win over Barnsley, the latest to advance to the FA Cup’s next stage.

It has been an impressive run of form with games against Sheffield United and Tottenham while conceding only one goal in the process. The Blues are currently one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

The 3-1 loss by Liverpool at Leicester City’s hands during the Saturday clash is a major turning point for Tuchel with hopes of a top-four finish. A win this Monday puts their top-four race into action.

In their last 23 Premier League matches, Steve Bruce registered seven wins, four draws, and 12 losses. The form currently places the side 17th on the table standings with 25 points and ten points from relegation battles.
