Too crazy to bet on 1×2 for Chelsea-Newcastle – here is a better betting tip

Both Chelsea and Newcastle are struggling in mid-table, so there is no real stakes left for both of them on Monday.

The 28th round of the Premier League concludes with a battle between two disappointed teams, with the realistic aim of finishing seventh in the table for both sides, which could even lead to an EL qualification. In this battle, Chelsea could be at a serious disadvantage if they fail to win at Stamford Bridge. The bookmakers have the home side as favourites.

Team news

London’s poor run continues, as after losing the League Cup final, they could only manage a 2-2 draw against Brentford in the league, and Pochettino’s side had to be happy with the draw at the end. The Argentinean manager will probably be forced to leave the manager’s post in the summer at the latest, as the team has failed to improve and continues to make the same mistakes as a year ago.

In addition, the number of injured players is once again increasing, with 11 of Pochettino’s players unavailable on Monday night. With Ben Chilwell and Levi Colwill also ineligible, there is a good chance that Cucurella, who last played in December, will start in defence. There could also be several youth players on the bench.

The visitors’ season is also not going as planned, to say the least, with injuries being the main reason, but patience is also running out for Eddie Howe. Newcastle, despite being one of the best defending teams last season, are now on 45 goals conceded this season, having conceded 33 in 38 games last season.

In the last round against Wolves, the team got away without conceding a goal after a long time, but it is noticeable that they are not as tough defensively anymore, which is reflected in the cards.

In terms of absentees, The Magpies are not doing too badly, with Kieran Trippier out, but even with him, the number of players out through injury is only five.

Free tip for Chelsea vs Newcastle

Betting on the outcome of a match between two unreliable teams seems too crazy. There are plenty of problems on Chelsea’s side, but we’re not keen on the extra handicap either, as Newcastle are also capable of 4 goals. However, what could be an interesting bet is the number of yellow cards the visitors will receive.

Even though Newcastle were a very tough team, in fact one of the toughest teams at the beginning of the season. But due to the fact that there are no serious aims left in the season, the attitude of the team has changed and the number of cards has been reduced.

In 2024, Newcastle have received a maximum of two yellows in seven of their eight league games, seeing as this game could bring the open play of two frustrated teams, we don’t expect the visitors to receive more than two cards. And this is a tip that 22bet is already paying near doubles on, which we are happy to send into play for Monday night.
