Chelsea

Joe Willock 67

Newcastle claim all three points.

After no scoring action in the first half, Joe Willock opened the score for Newcastle in the 67th minute after being assisted by Miguel Almirón. This lone goal proved decisive, as Newcastle kept Chelsea out for the rest of the game to take the three points.

The Overview

  • It was an even battle for possession (49% vs 51%), but the Magpies created more chances, registering 10 attempts to the Blues' five.
  • Although they got the win, the Magpies were wasteful in front of goal, only getting 30% of their total shots on target.

The Details

Kieran Trippier continually probed down the flank, getting 10 crosses into the box, although Bruno Guimarães and Trippier were frequent offenders, committing 4 fouls. The Blues had a slight edge in the passing department, registering 472 completed passes compared to the Magpies' 459.

Newcastle's winning streak rolls on. Meanwhile, Chelsea come away with yet another loss.

Preview | November 12

Newcastle United-Chelsea

Miguel Almirón looks to put Chelsea to the sword.

Ending a string of two Premier League defeats might be on the cards for Chelsea as they head to St. James' Park with dreams of getting one over on Newcastle. A change in fortunes for the Blues could see them jump Brighton and move into 6th place. A 1-0 victory in their last league meeting with the Magpies should give Chelsea confidence they can make that happen.

Newcastle | WWWWD | 3rd | Top Scorer: M. Almirón (8)

Newcastle have taken maximum points from their last 4 matches and they'll be hoping to keep the run going in this fixture. Newcastle tend to dominate games, especially in the final third. They rank in the top 10 for average possession (51.2%) and shots per match (14.9). Joelinton will be looking to keep up his fine defensive form after recording an average of 1.8 tackles per match in his last 5.

Chelsea | LLDDW | 7th | Top Scorer: R. Sterling (3)

Chelsea are on a downwards trend. They haven't been able to secure a win in any of their last 4 matches. Chelsea have a low xG (expected goals) and have had few opportunities to score. Their average xG of 0.8 over the last 5 matches has been 10th lowest in the league. They'll be hoping Jorginho can help with more solid defensive work. So far this season, he's made 14 tackles (42nd in the EPL). A bright spot – Kepa Arrizabalaga has been remarkable with 18 saves and 4 allowed goals over their last 5.

Newcastle-Chelsea Prediction: 2-0

Newcastle's solid defence should be the foundation for another three points.

Did you know? 0-1 is the most common scoreline between these two teams in the history of the Premier League, occurring a total of 9 times.

Is another win on the cards for Newcastle? Will the Blues improve and pick up points? PokerStars Sports has hundreds of markets, so you can find your perfect bet on the big match.

Arsenal

Gabriel 63

Arsenal pick up all three points in win at Chelsea.

In a lopsided match turned close, Arsenal were superior throughout, but squandered a myriad of chances to breakthrough. The lone goal of the match occurred in the 63rd minute as Gabriel found the back of the net following some good work by Bukayo Saka. Chelsea struggled to generate shot opportunities, but may be commended on keeping this one close throughout in what could have been a rout.

The Overview

  • The Gunners saw a bit more of the ball (56% possession) and converted that into 14 attempts on goal.
  • The Blues didn't generate enough chances, only mustering five total shots throughout the contest.
  • The Gunners got the job done, but it should've been more comfortable considering their shot accuracy was only 14%.

The Details

Bukayo Saka continually probed down the flank, getting 9 crosses into the box. The Gunners had the edge in the passing game, completing 456 passes compared to the Blues' 360. For Chelsea, it was a frustrating game for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who only registered 8 touches of the ball, although Azpilicueta seemed off the pace defensively, committing 4 fouls in a frustrating game.

It's another game, another loss for Chelsea. Meanwhile, Arsenal make it two wins in two.

Brighton produce astonishing win.

This match was quite the high-scoring affair. Leandro Trossard got the opener for Brighton in the 5th minute following an assist by Kaoru Mitoma. Following the initial score, Brighton proceeded to add on 3 more goals, compared to Chelsea's 1 as Brighton took the three points.

The Overview

  • Going forward the Blues looked dangerous, amassing 15 shots in total.
  • The Seagulls' accuracy paid off well, 47% of their shots were on target.

The Details

Brighton are back in business as they take all three points. Meanwhile, Chelsea's luck goes from bad to worse.

Late Casemiro goal denies Chelsea victory.

Jorginho began the scoring by capitalising from the penalty spot for Chelsea in the 87th minute. Man United's Casemiro retaliated with an equalizer in the 90th minute, but there was nothing between the teams for the remainder, leading to a share of the spoils.

The Overview

  • In a tightly contested game, the teams had a fairly equal share of the ball with 47% possession for the Blues and 53% for United.
  • They may have shared the points, but United will rue missed opportunities having had 13 shots compared to the Blues' six.

The Details

Mason Mount posed a threat out wide all game, registering 6 crosses, and he was a frequent offender, committing 4 fouls. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang only touched the ball 19 times, cutting a frustrated figure up front. While the passing game was fairly consistent, United had a slight advantage, clocking up 470 completed passes to the Blues' 405. For Man United, Luke Shaw racked up 4 interceptions throughout the game, constantly frustrating the Blues.

Back-to-back draws for Chelsea. Meanwhile, Man United continue their string of mixed results.

Brentford

Chelsea

Brentford hang on for draw with Chelsea.

Honors even in this one, with neither side able to force a breakthrough.

The Overview

  • A point shouldn't disappoint the Bees too much as they only had 33% possession in the game.
  • The Bees may count themselves fortunate to have shared the points after managing just eight shots compared to the Blues' 14.
  • It was a good-natured game with no players picking up a yellow card.

The Details

Bryan Mbeumo and Mathias Jensen posed a constant threat from the wide areas, whipping in a total of 5 crosses. For Chelsea, Kai Havertz was a frequent offender, committing 4 fouls. The Blues' success on the ball wasn't enough to take the win, drawing despite completing 337 more passes than the Bees.

Brentford's unpredictable form continues. Meanwhile, Chelsea's run of wins comes to an end.
