Newcastle have lost just one of their last seven Premier League home games against Chelsea (W5 D1), winning this exact fixture last season courtesy of Isaac Hayden’s 90th minute strike.
Chelsea have won five of their last seven Premier League meetings with Newcastle (L2), though the Blues have only managed to keep one clean sheet in this run – a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge last season.
Newcastle have won two of their last three Premier League home games (L1), as many as they had in their previous 11 at St James’ Park (W2 D4 L5). The Magpies are looking to pick up consecutive home league wins for the first time since December 2019.
Chelsea are unbeaten in six Premier League games (W3 D3), with only Spurs on a longer current such run in the competition (7). The Blues have netted at least three goals in five of those six games, failing to score in the other.
No side has had fewer shots in the Premier League this season than Newcastle (64). However, the Magpies have scored 10 goals, giving them a shot conversion rate of 15.6% – their highest on record in a single top-flight campaign (since 1997-98).
Chelsea have had more 10+ open play passing sequences (157) and more build up attacks (29), than any other side in the Premier League this season.
Chelsea are the highest scorers in the Premier League so far this season with 20 goals. The Blues have also netted a league-high 14 goals in the second half of matches, while Newcastle have scored the highest ratio of their Premier League goals after half-time this season (80% – 8/10).
Chelsea’s Timo Werner has been involved in nine goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions (7 goals, 2 assists), scoring in each of his last four. The last player to score in five consecutive appearances for Chelsea was Didier Drogba in November 2009.
Chelsea’s Timo Werner could become just the fourth different German player to score in three consecutive Premier League matches, after Jürgen Klinsmann (3 runs), Dietmar Hamann (March 1999) and Leroy Sané (October 2017).
In the two Premier League games in which he’s started, Hakim Ziyech has been involved in 57% of Chelsea’s seven Premier League goals, scoring once and providing three assists.
