Chelsea vs Newcastle United Prediction 28 January 2018

Tournament: 
Location: 
Match date: 

On January 28 2018 at 13:30 in the upcoming game of the English FA Cup at the Stamford Bridge Stadium the local Chelsea are playing against their guests Newcastle United.

We must admit that at the moment the only trophy Chelsea can fight for is the English FA Cup. It’s obvious now that nobody can outpace Manchester city in the national championship while in the champions League Chelsea need to win against Barcelona, who are in wonderful conditions now. As for the League Cup, the Blues lost to Gunners in the semifinal of it not long ago. We don’t really think that Chelsea will agree to stop their race for the trophies this season and that’s why we think that the Blues will be really motivated in the upcoming match.

In their previous cup games Chelsea never seemed to try very hard and they drew Norwich 1:1 and hardly outplayed Bournemouth and Everton. Yet, we must admit that on those matches they mostly had their second squad while this time they will probably play with the main one. We must actually admit that Chelsea look rather strong at their domestic stadium as they outplayed Brighton, Stoke City, Manchester United, Everton, Watford, Bournemouth, Southampton and Swansea here. Long story short, winning at the Stamford Bridge is always very difficult for the visitors to win there. Moreover, it’s hard to imagine the victory of the visitors when those visitors are Newcastle Untied, who have a lot of problems now.

Newcastle are in a very difficult situation now. They are just one point above the relegation zone. Just in four days after the game in London they are to play a match against Burnley where they really need to gain points to avoid relegation. We don’t really think that they will be trying very hard to win in the Cup competition. It seems to us that Newcastle will choose to concentrate on staying in the national elite division after the end of the current season.

All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the hosts are much more likely to win in the upcoming match.
