Newcastle vs Chelsea | EPL 22-23 | Matchday 16
There is no space in the table that is not being pushed at all times by several clubs competing in the Premier League today.

Winning and getting three points can mean a big advantage, and even drawing can make a difference. In Newcastle vs Chelsea we will see a bit of this; two clubs with a minimum of distance between them. This match could make a significant difference.
St James' Park Stadium to host Newcastle vs Chelsea 2022 match
Magpies Don’t Waste Time and They Want All Three Points from Newcastle vs Chelsea
In any case, this season has been a good one for the home side. They have accumulated three wins and five draws from nine games, with only one ending in a defeat.
They have had significant matches, such as the 4-1 win against Fulham. The Magpies’ feast began in the 11th minute with a goal by Callum Wilson, assisted by Joe Willock. Miguel Almirón scored in the 33rd minute with an assist from midfielder Bruno Guimarães.
The 0-3 would come with Sean Longstaff going into the break. Miguel Almirón would then have his shot, scoring at 57′ with an assist from Willock. At 88′ near the end, and when it seemed that there would be no goals from the Magpies, Bobby Reid would score, assisted by Neeskens Kebano in what would be the last goal of the match.
Newcastle faced a difficult opponent and came out on top, winning the game from the start. It is with this determination they should go to Newcastle vs Chelsea, where they will again meet with a club that has prevented them from getting three points from the games played before.
Chelsea Know They Can’t Let Their Guard Down If They Want to Hold Onto Their Place
Newcastle is an old acquaintance for the Blue Lions; they know the opponent’s game and weaknesses. Still, they should not underestimate a Newcastle that comes with a good run in the season. Chelsea, for their part, want to achieve a better position than they have achieved in the previous seasons.
As of matchday #9, the Blues had achieved five wins against the likes of West Ham and Everton, a draw with Tottenham, and two defeats against Leeds and Southampton. Victory in Newcastle vs Chelsea would mean further distance from a rival that is walking in their footsteps and could quickly overtake them with a slip-up.
