Chelsea will be looking to make it five wins in a row in all competitions when they continue their 2020-21 Premier League campaign at home to Newcastle United on Monday night. The Blues have been impressive since Thomas Tuchel’s appointment, moving up into fifth position in the Premier League table, while Newcastle have won two of their last three in England’s top flight to ease any relegation fears. Tuchel’s reign started with a goalless draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on January 27, but Chelsea have won each of their four matches since then, overcoming Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Sheffield United in the Premier League, conceding just one goal in the process.
Chelsea have enjoyed a blistering start under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel, having yet to taste a single defeat so far. They are heading into their Monday night fixture against Newcastle United on the back of a four-game winning run in all competitions that has fired them back into the top four contention in the Premier League. The Blues’ latest triumph came against Barnsley in the FA Cup, where they were far from impressive and had major difficulties in churning out a 1-0 victory. The game echoed many problems Chelsea still face, especially in terms of chance-creation in the final third – something Newcastle United could capitalise on, in their bid to cause an upset on Monday.
Kai Havertz is doubtful with an unspecified minor injury, while this game comes too soon for Thiago Silva. Callum Wilson, Fabian Schar and Javier Manquillo could all be out for up to eight weeks after being injured during Newcastle’s win against Southampton. Jeff Hendrick serves a one-match ban. Ciaran Clark is available after missing the Saints game because his partner had gone into labour, while fellow defenders Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernandez will be assessed as they close in on returns from muscle problems.
The results have begun to flow under Thomas Tuchel. Since the German manager has taken over, Chelsea have taken ten points from four matches. A win against Newcastle will leave the Blues in fourth place, a stunning return to the Champions League spots, after their drop down the table cost Frank Lampard his job on the Chelsea sidelines.
Newcastle United will head off to play at Stamford Bridge to try and generate a massive upset against a suddenly resurgent Chelsea. Chelsea have a place in the Champions League spots on the line, while Newcastle are playing to remain safely above the relegation battle. Steve Bruce’s side currently sits in 17th place, although they have a seven point cushion to the bottom three.
