Chelsea – Newcastle 25.08.2012
Chelsea had good start of new season earning six points from first two games (Wigan 0-2 and Reading 4-2) Newcastle beat Totenham at home with 2-1 on opening match.
Chelsea did well to recover from the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City, with the 2-0 win at DW Stadium hinting the Blues really mean business.Roberto Di Matteo’s side were then expected to have an easy job against Reading, but that wasn’t the case as the Blues needed a little help from the referees to come from a goal behind and record a 4-2 victory.
Match: Chelsea – Newcastle 18.30h
League: England Premier League
Our prediction: over 2.5 goals Odds: 1.68
Eden Hazard was once again their most influential player, creating two goals for his teammates and earning a penalty for his side.Roberto Di Matteo is unlikely to make a lot of changes to the side that beat Reading in midweek, and after scoring six goals in first two games,Newcastle have since shared spoils with Atromitos in Europa League play-off first leg, but given that most of the starters were rested in Greece, Alan Pardew’s troops should be well prepared for the Chelsea clash.
Hosts are favorites but i think that Newcastle can make some problem here,that for maybe best option is to try with 3 or more goals.
