Newcastle vs Chelsea Preview, Team News and Predicted Lineup and Score

Initial Observations

It’s now up to the other strong guns to clinch their desired spots in the final rankings as the destiny of the famous 2022–23 Premier League trophy has been decided. Chelsea hopes to end this dismal English Premier League season with a victory over Newcastle United, who are now in fourth position. This Super Sunday, the Blues will host the last gameday of the English Premier League at Stamford Bridge.  Three other managers have previously worked with the London Blues, but they have yet to be able to keep their positions through the conclusion of the current campaign. The team’s interim manager, Frank Lampard, has also won only one match since taking charge in the initial week of April. 

The White and Blacks, on the other hand, are enjoying their best Premier League season in the last 20 years and have reached the Top 4 for the first time after 2003. Having 70 points from 37 games, they are presently in fourth place in the rankings and will remain there even if that they lose the last league game. Chelsea faced both Manchester-based giants after their thrashing away win over Bournemouth and their devastating 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest, but they failed to pick up a single point from those two games. The Magpies wanted the Blues to win their matchup with Manchester United, but the Red Devils absolutely outplayed the guests to win by 4-1.

Newcastle Team News

Eddie Howe, the manager of Newcastle, has stated, however, that players like Joelinton and Manquillo will not play in the last league game due to injury worries. To maintain the winning streak of being undefeated for the past three games, the English coach is anticipated to use the same starting lineup.  The second period of November 2022 saw the staging of the most recent episode of this rivalry at St James’ Park when the host team narrowly defeated Chelsea to earn all three points. The White and Blacks’ 0-1 victory over the Blues resulted in the Blues’ third loss, knocking them out of the Top 6.

Chelsea Team News

Benoit Badiashile, a French defender who is 22 years old, is the most recent Blue to be added to the lengthy list of players who will be out for the remainder of the season owing to injury concerns. Before the United game, Ben Chilwell was seen at the practice facility, but the team management has yet to indicate whether or not we would get to see him play.  The front line of the starting XI is expected to include Joao Felix, who came back from illness to score the consolation goal in the 89th minute.

Predicted Starting XIs and score

Chelsea (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Wesley Fofana, Trevoh Chalobah, Lewis Hall; Carney Cukwuemeka, Enzo Fernandez, Conor Gallagher; Jaoa Felix, Kai Havertz, Mykhailo Mudryk

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Nick Pope; Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar, Sven Botman, Dan Burn; Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, Elliot Anderson; Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson, Alexander Isak

As per the ongoing form of Newcastle, I will say I favor Newcastle to win.
