Chelsea and Newcastle United are going to wrap up the action in the Premier League 24th round on Monday evening. The hosts want to get to the top four, while the away side searches for a surprise.
Chelsea vs Newcastle United Match Preview & Team News
Chelsea improved its form significantly after Thomas Tuchel took over the bench. The Blues tied three victories and conceded only once in the previous four rounds. They are now just one point behind Liverpool and have a great chance to skip them on the table. Kurt Zouma and the lads tightened up the defense lately, and the home side is in excellent momentum. Although they haven’t been too confident at home recently, Chelsea is still among the best hosts in the league. The Blues booked three wins on the road, including the FA Cup one against Barnsley. They want to keep up where they left off and climb to the top four.
Newcastle United struggles this season, and the away side is just one pace ahead of the relegation zone. However, they won’t slip to the bottom three yet since the visitors are seven points ahead of Fulham. They managed to improve their displays lately and booked two important wins in the previous three rounds. Steve Bruce’s side needs to tighten up its defense, as they conceded 38 goals so far in the season. The Magpies lost six times on the road so far but managed to break a losing streak in their latest outing. They’ll have selection troubles in the final third since Callum Wilson will miss this game due to an injury.
