Steve Bruce saw his team scrap out a 1-1 draw at Molineux last weekend although that owed plenty to the goalkeeping heroics of Martin Dubravka, with the Slovakian landing a precious point for Newcastle.

The Magpies now have a tough assignment against Chelsea on Saturday teatime and the squad is down to the bare bones, with Dwight Gayle and Paul Dummett the latest players to get crocked, while the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles are also sidelined.

It simply looks too tall an order for the Tyneside club to get something against a Chelsea side who rediscovered their mojo at Stamford Bridge when putting three goals past Burnley last weekend and look to be in good shape.

Frank Lampard’s side have a five-point cushion over fifth-placed Manchester United and they will want to keep the chasing pack at arm’s length, with the Blues pretty strong on the road and that means seven wins from eleven away from home.

Callum Hudson-Odoi produced an excellent performance last weekend, with Reece James looking sharp in the right-back position, with the full-back bombing forward to good effect against the Clarets.

Chelsea are starting to build up a nice little run of form and we’re happy to back them simply at the match odds to claim three points, with some braver punters recommended to go for the away win to nil.

It’s noticeable that Lampard’s team have started to tighten up now that Antonio Rudiger is back to full speed, while Kurt Zouma is also proving adept at the back, while Jorginho and Mason Mount are proving strong in the midfield department.

This could be a comfortable victory for Chelsea who have proven time and again that they can land the spoils on the road this term.
