What to know about Newcastle United (16th)
Chelsea vs Newcastle United game preview 2019 take on the Magpies for EPL Matchweek 9 2019:
Despite the fluke wins that came off against Spurs and Manchester United, it’s safe to say Newcastle have had a pretty underwhelming season. They’ve only managed to score five goals in eight games so far this season and have conceded 13 goals.
They’re the weakest side in the league in terms of attacking. Their xG is a mere 4.95. To put it into perspective, the second-worst attacking side has an xG of 8.10.
It’s going to be another difficult game for the Magpies and their struggle to get some stability within the club and on the pitch looks to continue.
What to know about Chelsea (5th)
Chelsea vs Newcastle United game preview 2019 take on the Blues for EPL Matchweek 9 2019:
After a shaky start to their campaign, Chelsea are finally finding their place in the top four of the table. They’ve won three of their last four games and the only loss they suffered in their last 7 games came against Liverpool—a game they might have won as per the chances they created in the second half of the fixture.

One thing that’s been common in Chelsea’s games has been goal-scoring. Only the game against Brighton didn’t involve 2.5+ goals, otherwise, they’ve scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 games.
London Blues’ only weakness is their defence. They’ve conceded 14 goals so far this season, which is 4th worst defensive record in the league. However, Newcastle should be the least daunting side in the league for their defence.
- Chelsea have averaged 2.25 goals per game.
- Newcastle have only won once in their last five games.
