Michael Owen thinks that ‘Chelsea have their tails up’ as they get ready to stand Newcastle United.
Owen including that they’re ‘extraordinarily all for securing Champions League soccer subsequent season.’
Chelsea ended up in mid-table beneath Frank Lampard as his ultimate 8 Premier League video games produced 5 defeats, one draw and handiest the 2 wins.
After his departure, ten issues from 4 PL suits have observed Chelsea transfer as much as 5th, just a level off the Champions League puts and handiest six issues off Guy Utd in moment.
Michael Owen crediting Thomas Tuchel: ‘The German without a doubt turns out to have had the specified impact with the avid gamers now noticeably extra organised, particularly on the again.’
As for Monday’s guests, Michael Owen states that: ‘Newcastle have had a couple of excellent result of past due. This may increasingly have come as one of these welcome sight to the Geordie devoted…’
Smartly two wins within the remaining fourteen suits doesn’t equivalent ‘a couple of excellent effects’ from the place I’m sitting, in the case of ‘a couple of’ then it’s for sure at least 3 and the remaining 9 video games have observed seven defeats and two wins, now not even a draw so as to add on to those contemporary couple of victories.
The win over Southampton used to be all somewhat unusual, credit score to the likes of ASM, Almiron and Willock for appearing somewhat of undertaking, however the prerequisites vastly got here to United’s rescue as they installed a gritty defensive show with handiest ten males within the second-half after Hendrick’s daft sending off, handiest 9 for the general ten mins.
I feel the 2 wins over Everton and Southampton can perfect be described as a ‘reduction’ for Newcastle enthusiasts, in a similar fashion the truth that the 3 golf equipment within the relegation shape are proceeding to turn such woeful makes an attempt at getting out of hassle, as issues stand anyway.
Michael Owen predicts that Newcastle gets hammered via Chelsea and fail to attain a objective, the house facet operating out simple 3-Zero winners.
With Callum Wilson out for the foreseeable we’re all questioning the place the targets come from, until we are facing different aspects who protect as badly as Southampton did in that first-half.
Again in November, Steve Bruce had his same old extremely defensive set-up when Chelsea visited St James Park, Lampard’s crew left with a very simple 2-Zero win, Newcastle just one shot on course and 29% ownership.
I wish to see Dwight Gayle are available in for Callum Wilson and up to conceivable Newcastle get at the entrance foot. Alternatively, I concern that Steve Bruce will all however certainly move with Joelinton and move with an overly detrimental arrange on Monday evening.
I’m hoping I’m proved flawed, differently I feel it’ll finally end up a easy process for Chelsea to finish the double over Newcastle.
Michael Owen speaking to BetVictor:
“Chelsea have hit a pleasant run of shape beneath new supervisor Thomas Tuchel.
“The German without a doubt turns out to have had the specified impact with the avid gamers now noticeably extra organised, particularly on the again.
