Tournament: The English Premier League.
On Saturday in frames of the 22nd round of the EPL Chealse on Stamford Bridge will host Newcastle. Chelsea reminds us a teeterboard nowadays. In previous 5 matches the Pensioners have won with great difficulties over Brighton, Watford and Crystal Palace. They were not able to score at home to Leicester and Southampton, having lost to the Foxes.
Nobody is speaking about the fight for the gold medals but with such game the team of Maurizio Sarri can only dream about staying in the top-4. Within a week, the Blues have pushed Nottingham Forest out of the FA Cup.
Despite the double into the gates of the Foresters Alvaro Morata will be remembered by the missed goal in empty gates. After this Chelsea has lost also to Tottenham in the first semifinal of the League Cup.
The Pensioners are scoring fewer goals if to compare with all other teams of the top-6. That is why, the probable purchase of Gonzalo Higuaín seems to be quite good variant.
The question is: will the football player play in the EPL after the Serie A? Despite the disaster in attack, Chelsea won’t have any problems Newcastle.
Rafael Benitez is returning on Stamford Bridge, but as a head coach of Newcastle. The coach from Spain is trying to do all he can with what he has.
Yes, the Magpies take the 15th line but are ahead of the relegation zone with two points. By the way, Newcastle can’t play with top teams, so in this match Chelsea has to win.
