Chelsea Clean Sheet

Chelsea FC vs Newcastle United 15.02.2021

Chelsea have looked like a totally different team under new coach Thomas Tuchel. He has brought back into the fold some of the oldheads that were ignored for the most part by Lampard and they have repaid his faith in them with a string of terrific performances that has seen them get back into the top four picture. Three straight league wins has moved them up to 5th on the log, just a point shy of 4th placed Liverpool. 

Newcastle have been wildly inconsistent. They are hovering just above the drop zone. Despite their impressive 2-0 win over Everton on their last away assignment, they have been horrible on their travels overall. That win stopped a 7 game losing streak away from home across all competitions. 

The Blues revival has been starkly evident on the defensive end. In the four games they have played under Tuchel, they kept 3 clean sheets and only conceded one goal. If anything, the goal they conceded was actually an own goal. Tuchel’s preferred 3-4-3 formation has worked brilliantly thus far. Dominating possession and limiting opponents’ sniffs at goal. We fancy the pattern to replicate here and we are therefore backing Chelsea to keep a clean sheet in this game.
