Chelsea host Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday night (KO, 20:00) and the Blues have a chance to move to just a point behind the Magpies if they win at Stamford Bridge. A top-four finish is almost certainly out of reach for Monday’s duelling pair, but there is still potential to qualify for European competition and that will be the focus when the two sides clash in west London on Monday night.

Below are our Chelsea vs Newcastle bet builder tips; we have put together a three-leg bet builder, which pays 5/1 using Betfred’s #PickYourPunt feature.

Chelsea to beat Newcastle

Chelsea wouldn’t be anywhere near a reliable punting proposition, but at their peak, the Blues are a class above Newcastle and there is enough in the 9/10 on offer to take a chance on Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last six matches, inside 90 minutes, and they have only lost one of their last 11 Stamford Bridge contests.

The Blues had 77 per cent possession, won the shot count 9-2 and corner count 7-1, when completely outplaying Newcastle in a 1-1 League Cup contest in west London earlier in the campaign.

The Magpies have won only six of their 21 all-competition away matches this term, losing eight of 13 in the league. They have not won at Stamford Bridge since 2012, losing 10 of their subsequent 12 visits in 90 minutes, and more road-trip trouble could await in west London.

Over 2.5 goals

There have been 44 goals in Chelsea’s last 12 Stamford Bridge matches, and while the Blues can call on the attacking talents of Cole Palmer, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson, they have struggled to close the door at the other end.

Newcastle have conceded 29 away Premier League goals this term - only Sheffield United and Luton Town have shipped more - but the Magpies did find their scoring touch when hammering Wolves at St James’ Park last time out. Going for more goals looks the right play.

Bruno Guimaraes to be shown a card

Bruno Guimaraes has been shown 14 yellow cards in a Newcastle shirt this season and the combative midfielder could see plenty of action at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea enjoyed 77 per cent possession when these sides clashed in the League Cup at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season and Guimaraes picked up a caution in that west London contest.

The Blues are likely to boss the ball once again on Monday night and that could force the Brazilian into making plenty of challenges in a bid to break up the play. Any unsuccessful tackles or attempted interceptions could land the Newcastle man in trouble with referee John Brooks.
