Stamp Lawrenson has been discussing Saturday’s match at Stamford Bridge.
A venue the put Newcastle United maintain obtained simplest one league sport since 1986.
There is not very at all times a team that Chelsea maintain beaten at house extra times in the Premier League era than the sixteen (in 23 suits) times they’ve defeated the Magpies.
As if those stats aren’t unsuitable enough, Rafa Benitez has obtained simplest one of his 14 away suits in opposition to Chelsea in all competitions (four attracts, nine defeats), a 1-zero victory with Liverpool in the Premier League in October 2008.
Because the cherry on the tip of the icing on the very top of the cake, the Chelsea followers will as current, give their used manager distress.
Ravishing enough he might now not were basically the most standard selection, but when Rafa Benitez agreed to step in mid-season with the club in chaos after the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo, after which led them to a Europa League trophy resolve and Champions League qualification, you are going to mediate no now not up to Chelsea followers would in hindsight maintain grudging appreciate for the job he did, you’d be noxious.
Moderately unimaginable that Newcastle followers is also portrayed by the media as ‘deluded’ in wanting higher than Mike Ashley undermining their club, yet the likes of these clowns at Chelsea win away with how they trudge on. The the same with Arsene Wenger and the arrangement the Arsenal followers went on but evaded all but minimal criticism from the press. That you might virtually mediate there modified into once a London bias, or even appropriate an anti-NUFC one…?
As for the right sport on Saturday, Stamp Lawrenson thinks Rafa Benitez will enjoy what occurs on the pitch about as powerful as he enjoys is reception from the Chelsea followers.
Chelsea ave scored some distance less (38) targets than any varied club in the tip six and are reported to be desirous to carry in a singular striker.
Lawrenson says they obtained’t need a singular goalscorer to beat Newcastle United.
The closing three weeks maintain viewed each and each Leicester obtained (1-zero) and Southampton (drawn zero-zero) trudge to Stamford Bridge and help neat sheets, Newcastle you in actuality feel will virtually no doubt maintain to realize the same in the event that they are to win anything, as simplest Huddersfield maintain scored now not up to Newcastle’s 15 PL targets.
Stamp Lawrenson talking to BBC Sport:
“Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez got a gigantic welcome at Anfield when he went help with the Magpies over Christmas.
“However I don’t mediate he’ll win the same form of reception on Saturday at any other of his used golf equipment.
“Sadly for Benitez, I will look him being on the noxious end of a the same result – despite the undeniable reality that I attain now not look Chelsea hammering Newcastle the come that Liverpool did.
“It looks cherish the Blues are going to win a singular striker in January, we appropriate don’t know who this is also yet.
“They need one as a result of they’ve been a limited brief of targets recently but, meanwhile, I still mediate they are going to be too stable for the Magpies.
“Prediction is Chelsea 2 Newcastle zero.”
