Harry Redknapp states his prediction for Chelsea FC v Newcastle
Harry Redknapp looks ahead to Chelsea FC's home clash with Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday
Harry Redknapp is backing Chelsea FC to beat Newcastle United in Saturday’s Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues head into the game looking to continue their recent good form under Frank Lampard and break back into the top four.
As things stand, Chelsea FC are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table in the wake of their 4-1 win over Southampton at St Mary’s last time out.
The west London side seem to be finding some momentum under their new boss as they look to try and maintain their place in the Champions League qualification spots this term.
Newcastle will be looking to build on their 1-0 victory over Manchester United at St James’ Park last time out.
But former Spurs manager Redknapp is tipping Chelsea FC to take all three points at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Writing in his blog for BetVictor, Redknapp said: “Chelsea were enjoying a rich vein of form before the break with three Premier League wins from four and their only loss was against the table toppers.
“Their attacking football and introduction of exciting young players has pleased the Stamford Bridge followers and they will expect three more points when Newcastle visit the capital.
“United have dug deep to record narrow wins against Tottenham and Manchester United but lack the consistency to build momentum.
“Despite having players still in the treatment room, Chelsea have shown they now have a deep squad and with confidence ever so high, there is no reason to desert them.”
Chelsea FC will take on Ajax away from home in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
They will then travel to Burnley in the Premier League next weekend.
