Premier League

Opinion: 3 reasons why Chelsea will lose versus Newcastle.

The Blues will head to St James park in their next league fixtures. Frank lampard men have had a decent result since losing to premier league champions earlier this season.

The Blues have recorded 3wins and 3draws since that two nill loss. However, they are set for a tricky fixture in their next outing, and their recent impressive performance in recent times will be put to test on Saturday when they visit Newcastle united.

Below are the 3 reasons why Chelsea will leave St James park empty handed:


It's something of bogey ground for the blues. In their last seven visit to the ground in the premier league, Chelsea have lost five and drawn one. The blues have only one win on this ground in the past 9years, an unconvincing 2-1 win 2018 courtesy of a Eden Hazard's penalty and a DeAndre Yedlin own goal.

Chelsea might find it difficult again when they visit this time around.

2. Tactics.

Steve Bruce Toons Armies, are a disciplined side that usually set up in a 5-4-1 formation. The pattern which they use to defeat Chelsea in the corresponding fixture last season. They are disciplined at the back absorbing all pressures which Chelsea might find not interesting and they are as well good on the counter. All these could prove to be a problem for Chelsea.


Thiago Silva has impressed in recent time which made him a sure bet to start the game on Saturday. However, when being interviewed as a premier league player, the Brazilian critized the long ball approach they use in the premier league, this could play into Newcastle's hands,as that's their major strength.

This states that the likes of Thiago Silva could be set for a long afternoon when playing against the likes of Andy Carrol and Joelinton.
