Chelsea is stable at Tuchel!
Under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel Chelsea is visible in an upward trend.
Only in his first debut match against the Wolves, which ended 0-0, were the 3 points not won.
But then came 3 consecutive victories in the Premier League.
Tuhel professes a defensive football philosophy. And his handwriting on the team was immediately apparent.
The Blues have conceded only one goal in their last 5 games. And only an average of 5 blows to his neck.
Chelsea are traditionally a strong host with only one loss from all their last 16 home games.
Newcastle is without its goal scorer!
Newcastle are ranked 17th in the Premier League. But the interesting thing is that they have a 10-point distance from the 18th before this round.
The Magpies have won 2 of their last 3 matches.
However, they have several serious staffing problems. Among them is the goal scorer Culum Wilson.
Forecast for Chelsea - Newcastle
My idea for this match is the following.
On the one hand, a victory for Chelsea seems very likely. But I would never choose it on the proposed odds.
However, they have a team against them, which is also on the rise and goes out to defend in a very busy defensive block.
In such a situation, the winner is not so obvious.
Much more obvious and, of course, at a much better odds are the many corners from the hosts.
Because the Blues will try desperately to create goal positions.
And Newcastle, in the absence of its top scorer and with tactics for a draw, is unlikely to score such a stable defense.
I combine the two probabilities in a common forecast. And you get not only a great, but also a very probable coefficient.
