Stamford Bridge — London
Match : Chelsea – Newcastle,Premier league
Referee: M. Halsey
The last meeting of the remaining 34th round of English Premier League is actually a direct clash of candidates for placement in the Champions League, given that Newcastle is currently ranked fifth, and Chelsea just behind them, with just one point behind. There are immediate and fourth Tottenham Spurs, who have the same number of points like “magpies”, while Arsenal still has not yet definitively verified third place. Otherwise, it is interesting to note that in duels of Chelsea and Newcastle for five years has not recorded a home win, so the “Blues” from London in the fall celebrated away with 3-0, while last year both their matches ended without a winner.
But this time the chosen of coach Di Matteo at their Stamford Bridge must seek win if they want to compete next season in the Champions League, because otherwise two rounds before the end they would be remained in the worst situation of all candidates for the remaining fourth place. And of course that after this year’s great performances in this eminent European competition, in which they are pushed up to the finals, do not even think of that next autumn it fail, because it really was a big blow to the ambitious owner Abramovich, who is announced additional investments during this summer.

That’s why we believe that host in this meeting will give their best to get three points, and surely their confidence is at the highest level possible after the recent success, both internationally and on the England scene. Specifically, in addition to placement in the finals of the Champions League, “Blues” recently won at Wembley and the FA Cup, after the glorious victory of 5-1 over Tottenham, while the last weekend in the Premiership in their stadium just ran over another town rivals QPR, a celebrating with even 6:1.

What has particularly pleased all fans of Chelsea in this match was a big comeback Torres, who scored three goals, so that he and against Newcastle should get an advantage over Drogba, while in contrast to meeting with QPR, their place in the starting lineup should still take Ivanovic and Ramires. On the other hand, out of the team are still only injured defenders Luiz and Cahill.
Chelsea probable lineup: Cech – Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole –Essien, Lampard – Sturridge, Mata, Ramires – Torres
We have already said in the introduction that the Newcastle players are still in the game for placement in the Champions League, but they have already missed a great chance last weekend, when on a guest appearance by “drowning” Wigan were defeated, with 4:0 (Highlights).
This result was in any case a unexpected, given that the “magpies” before it had a string of six consecutive wins, which actually brought them to such a high position. But now they faces an extremely difficult task, given that after this away match against theirs direct rival Chelsea they will host first placed Manchester City, while in the last round they go to always unpleasant Everton.
However, as long as there is hope, the chosen ones of coach Pardew certainly will give all of themselves, so on Wednesday night we might expect their great resistance to intensified Chelsea
But to return to the form of a few days ago, first of all they need to regain their great offensive players, led by rookie Papis Cisse `, while the last line of ” Magpies ” definitely had to pull out lessons from the match against Wigan, where they really were below any level. Otherwise, there should be almost no change in the first team, while from the before outside the teams are injured defender Taylor,midfielder Marveaux and attacker Lovenkrands.
Newcastle probable lineup: Krul – Simpson, Williamson, Collocini, Santon – Tiote, Cabaye, Gutierrez – Ben Arfa – Demba Ba, Papis Cisse
Prediction : Since the last weekend, “Blues” from London, apparently on the wings of the great success in the Champions League, and in thePremiership merely demolished city rivals QPR’s, we believe that on Wednesday they will reach the new home victory, especially because on that way they can prestige Newcastle on the table and agains eriously get involved in the fight to the last place that leads to the Champions League.
In addition, to their last party we suggest that this should be another very effective game, especially if great guest attackers were on their level, who before the encounter with Wigan, in the eight games played, on average, scored two goals. So,Chelsea to win,or over 2,5 goals
