Newcastle United traveled to visit Southampton last week. Once again, this season, they have been active and productive. The Magpies left no chance for their opponents in this encounter and clinched a 4:1 win. Newcastle hasn't lost a point for the fourth game in a row. They're now in third place in the EPL. In midweek, they beat Crystal Palace on penalties at home to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup.
After a 1:4 away defeat at the hands of Brighton, the Aristocrats returned to their home ground to face Arsenal. They were powerless against the EPL leaders (0:1). Chelsea is seventh in the table with 21 points. This week, the Londoners have time to travel to Manchester City. They suffered a 0:2 defeat at the Etihad Stadium - eliminated from the English League Cup.
Expert Betting Tips
Newcastle United is rightly in the leading group of the EPL and is the main pursuer of Arsenal and Manchester City. They have reached a new level and are aiming for another win. Another motivation for the home side is the disappointing statistics of the recent encounters with Chelsea. Right now, the Magpies look preferable to the Londoners. We shouldn't be surprised if the home side takes another three points and the encounter turns out to be rough.
