Premier League

Premier League Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions for Newcastle vs. Chelsea (Saturday, Nov. 21)

It was hoped the signing of Callum Wilson would fix that, but the Tyneside club still hasn’t solved its attacking puzzle.

The Chelsea defense will be tested without veteran center back Thiago Silva, who Lampard said is unlikely to make the trip north because of extensive travel for his duties with the Brazilian national team.

Lampard said the young German has started trying to gain some of his fitness after isolating for two weeks due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Expect the Blues’ attack to feature both Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham, as well as playmaker Hakim Ziyech, who has three assists in his first four Premier League appearances.

The Blues have played a 4-3-3 with Werner, Abraham and Ziyech in their past two games, which were a 3-0 Champions League win over Rennes and the 4-1 rout of Sheffield United.

I know we’re coming out of an international break and it’s tough to keep momentum over a two-week period, but I feel good about Chelsea heading north and getting a result.
