We simulated Chelsea vs Newcastle United to get a Premier League score prediction

Chelsea will be looking to put an end to their winless Premier League run against Newcastle United when the two sides meet at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Goals from Nicolas Jackson and Axel Disasi weren’t enough to earn Chelsea three points in their last outing, with the Blues being held to a 2-2 draw against London rivals Brentford last weekend. The result left Mauricio Pochettino’s side 11th in the Premier League, and if Chelsea fail to win on Monday, there’s a possibility they could end the gameweek 12th in the table.

Chelsea are without a win against Newcastle in the Premier League in their last three games, with the most recent meeting ending in a 4-1 loss at St. James’ Park. Pochettino has been handed more injury issues as well, with Ben Chilwell and Levi Colwill set to miss Monday’s clash, while Conor Gallagher is a doubt.

Chelsea vs Newcastle United simulated to get an FA Cup score prediction

To complete this simulation, we used EA FC 24 and updated the squads with the latest injuries and suspensions.

We predict that Chelsea could set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with their line-up as follows: Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Chalobah, Cucurella; Caicedo, Fernandez; Palmer, Mudryk, Sterling; Jackson.

We predict that Newcastle could line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with their starting XI as follows: Dubravka; Livramento, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock; Barnes, Isak, Gordon.

It was a slow start from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and they were made to pay for some sloppy play six minutes in when Alexander Isak broke through and slotted past Djordje Petrovic. After going behind, the Blues started to find some rhythm, and just before the break, they levelled the score.

A fantastic pass forward from Enzo Fernandez split open the Newcastle defence, allowing Jackson to surge through on goal. A stroke of fortune saw the ball ricochet off the leg of Fabian Schar and back into the path of the striker after he failed to take him on, and after picking up the ball again, he fired home to make it 1-1.

Cole Palmer almost made it 2-1 just after the restart when he took aim from a narrow-angle, but his strike was pushed onto the post by Martin Dubravka to deny a Chelsea turnaround. With the game level, Newcastle started to see more of the ball and create some big chances, and with 18 minutes to go, they retook the lead.
