Chelsea vs Newcastle United — Prediction

Chelsea vs Newcastle United — Prediction

The normal fans who you can find on the streets were okay with me. The rivalry between Liverpool and Chelsea at this time changed things and the perceptions of some people, but the majority of the fans realised I was doing a professional job. That said, the Blues still trail Manchester City by 11 points after 14 games and it would take a complete catastrophe for Pep Guardiola's men to blow their lead now.

A major reason for this could be attributed to the performances of Andreas Christensen, who has performed admirably in the past few weeks.

"Newcastle deserve great credit for coming from two goals down to snatch a point at the Hawthorns midweek, but champions Chelsea cannot be opposed at Stamford Bridge", Owen told BetVictor.

He has until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charge, the FA says.

David Luiz reportedly holds concerns over his status with Chelsea and "thinks he has no future" at Stamford Bridge amid rumours of a fractious relationship with manager Antonio Conte. By the end of the campaign Chelsea had recovered to claim the third automatic Champions League spot and by winning the Europa League final in Amsterdam had become only the fourth club in history to lift every major European honour after Ajax, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

The former Liverpool manager said: "I think the fans will be fine". Referee Neil Swarbrick felt Conte's behaviour was inappropriate and decided to send Conte to the stands - much to the dismay of the Blues faithful. But Benitez rarely did himself any favours.

Marcotti was discussing the chances of Chelsea signing Roma defender Kostas Manolas when the transfer window opens next month. As it was a meek 1-0 defeat to a clearly inferior Corinthians side only helped to further undermine him.

He said: "Chelsea are a top side and it is difficult to go there and win".
