Goals expected as Blues come to Toon
Premier League leaders Chelsea make visit Tyneside this weekend for the Magpies' last game of October and supporters will be hopeful that a strong home record against the Blues can inspire an upset of the odds.
Callum Wilson hasn't wasted any time getting back amongst the goals since his return to the side, scoring against Tottenham and Crystal Palace to take his season tally to four. Going back to last season, that's six goals in six top flight games for the number nine and he's been clipped into 9/4 from 5/2 by BoyleSports to breach the Chelsea rearguard on Saturday.
Thomas Tuchel's side are favourites to bolster their title credentials, but the more optimistic of the Toon Army may be taking heart from a strong head-to-head record, which has seen the Magpies win on five of the last eight occasions Chelsea have made the trip to St. James' Park.
Newcastle have scored in seven of those eight matches and more recently, this campaign's league matches have featured an average of 3.44 goals per game, joint-second in the division. Like Chelsea, Newcastle have only drawn one blank in front of goal this season and have failed to find the net just once in the whole calendar year when playing in front of the home fans.
Now BoyleSports are offering Toon Army fans an exclusive enhancement from 4/5 to a whopping 2/1 that Newcastle continue that scoring form with a goal at any time against Chelsea.
