Newcastle United vs Chelsea, Premier League 2020-21, Match Preview 

Newcastle United welcomes Chelsea at St James Park in the Saturday lunchtime encounter of Premier League 2020-21. With 11 points, Newcastle occupies the 13th spot, and Chelsea stands at the 5th spot in the table with a four-matches winning streak.  

Match Timings: Nov 21, 6 PM 

Team Preview 

Lampard’s side has an excellent opportunity to take the top spot for a temporary period when they travel to St James Park on Saturday. Chelsea has won five of their previous seven Premier League meetings with Newcastle, but they have won just one of their previous seven Premier League matches at St James Park. The last defeat came for the Blues during the last edition 2019-20. The Blues have won their last four games in a convincing way as they conceded just one goal and scored 14 times. Another three points are on the plate, and Lampard is optimistic about making it five out of five. 

Chelsea are now unbeaten in eight matches across all competitions, and with 20 goals, the Blues are now the leading scorers of this season. In the last outing against Sheffield United, they netted four times in reply to McGoldrick’s 9th-minute strike. In Champions League 2020-21, they are at the top of the table in Group E, ahead of 2nd placed Sevilla in terms of goal difference. 

Meanwhile, Newcastle has lost just one home game out of their last seven meetings with Chelsea. The Magpies recently lost to Southampton 2-0, following a 2-1 victory over Everton. Callum Wilson netted a brace to secure three points in the last home-win. The hosts have also defeated West Ham United and Burnley this season, including the draws against Spurs and Wolves. At home, Bruce's side has won four, drawn four, and lost four of its previous 12 top-flight games.
