Betting Tip: Chelsea -1.00 @ 3/2 with bet365

Jose Mourinho has ridden the storm and come out smiling. The Chelsea manager couldn’t have envisaged the shit-storm that accompanied the Eva Carneiro episode, while the team’s results were poor until last week.

Three straight wins against Maccabi, Arsenal and Walsall have given the Blues a platform to re-launch a Premier League title assault and they can surely get the better of a Newcastle side who are all at sea under Steve McClaren.

Chelsea are a best price 8/13 to claim victory, with Diego Costa suspended for this trip to St James’ Park although Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao are waiting in the wings and the former scored against the Saddlers during the week.

Indeed, we’re tempted by the visitors on the handicap market where Chelsea need to win by a two-goal margin in order for our bet to cop. This is essentially the same team that cantered to the title last term, with Kurt Zouma partnering Gary Cahill in central defence.

Newcastle have been largely poor this season, with a goalless draw at Old Trafford the pinnacle of their achievements thus far. They also kept things tight when losing 1-0 at home to Arsenal, although poor discipline has been a hallmark of their performances so far.

BetVictor go 21/4 about the Magpies following in the footsteps of Manchester City and Everton by beating Chelsea, although the difference between Newcastle and those sides is that McClaren’s team aren’t very good.

Sheffield Wednesday came away with a 1-0 Capital One Cup win on Wednesday night and the home side were at virtually full-strength. More pain is surely on the way for the Toon Army.
