I would love to predict a Newcastle win but obviously I cannot. I'll go 2-0 Chelsea with Hazard and Giroud on target for the home side. Hopefully Shelvey has a big game though we need him to keep his discipline as he could have been sent off against Manchester United.

My biggest hope is Chelsea aren't great going forward of late. 1 goal against Palace and Southampton. They lost to Leicester to without scoring at home and lost at Spurs In the cup without scoring they haven't been prolific by any means of late. That does give us a bit of hope we lost to United but played quite well and created more chances than normal. Hopefully we grind out a result but I'm not confident and I think they will have enough.

Scoreless draw or a narrow 1-0 victory to either side.

Willian starts and a false 9 against a team that will sit back.

Oh Sarri. What are you doing.:dam:

People complain a lot but I enjoy the style of Sarri’s Chelsea. It’s the first season and their will be growing pains so I am okay with it. People will also  note that Chelsea lack a plan B, well what is the point of having a plan B if the plan A isn’t fully implemented?

Listening on 5 Live and they say with 20 mins gone, Newcastle haven't had a touch in Chelsea's half O.o

Yeah they have. Yedlin made a bad run to get nicked by Alonso

Glad we got the goal when we did. Awful yet again in the third.

Equaliser for Newcastle. Clark scores a header from a corner.

Unreal how rough Chelsea look while defending. Though I do suppose that Newcastle practiced their set pieces for this game. I also am sick of Willian. How can he be so elite at everything except when it counts? He will make an amazing run and dribble and then miss an open net.

It's honestly come to a point where I am hoping he gets injured.

As sadistic and pathetic as it sounds, I desperately want to see this fraud get injured well enough to have him sidelined until he is sold. When we are rejecting a 50 million bid + Malcom from Barcelona, it just shows where this club's ambition lies if they view this twat as an important player. Unbelievable. When he hit it wide when it was just him and the keeper, that was Willian in a fucking nutshell.

Slow. Narrow. Predictable. Sloppy. Same shite, and same players on the pitch. The fact CHO and Giroud aren't starting against a team we knew would sit back, is just piss poor management.

Credit to Newcastle for not putting their head down after the Pedro goal. We will always be there for the taking with who we have on the pitch at the moment. Too many comfortable players for us. Jorginho included who has been awful. We need reinforcements in this window because we cannot keep carrying the way we are and expect top 4. 

Shambles

The sad thing is you just know this goal will pull the wool over people's eyes. And by people I mean our board. 

2nd goal in 17 games. Same league goals as Kante.

I really can't be arsed with Newcastle getting relegated again. Hopefully it's Burnley and someone like Southampton who goes down with Huddersfield.

That match had nothing about it. Two teams in mediocre form with an air of mild depression about them, but one of them clearly better than the other. Chelsea never looked comfortable but Newcastle also never looked a threat.

Still, Chelsea have a six point cushion in 4th place thanks to Arsenals loss today. Even if United win tomorrow, that's a healthy gap.

Nah, he's talking absolute bollocks here. I think he normally comes across well on BT too.

Yeah I rate him normally. Although he's not gonna criticize someone who makes him money to be fair. I agree that of you are gonna sell a club you are not gonna invest heavily but as I said Ashley has always been like that even when he wasn't planning on selling

You could say Conte's title win pulled wool over people's eyes as well.

Anyway, some better movement in and behind today which I believe is something we've lacked for a few years now. Everyone normally always wants the ball to feet. Pedro adds some variation to our play in that regard and that's why I believe he complements Hazard a lot better as well.
