Newcastle United vs Chelsea Prediction
Although City may have lost their grip on this competition last year, they should be thrilled on Wednesday when the final whistle blows, even though neither manager should start their strongest lineups for this vital EFL Cup match.
We anticipate the hosts to secure their place in the fourth round because Guardiola‘s team has only ever known how to win at the Etihad, whereas Chelsea has yet to figure out how to win against their domestic rivals.
We say: Newcastle United 1-2 Chelsea
- Tip 1: Chelsea to Win
- Tip 2: Goals: Over 1.5
