iBet: Newcastle could well have a go against Chelsea
Chelsea v Newcastle, kick off 5.30pm, live on ESPN
Back Newcastle to gain more than 3.5 corners at 8/11 with Bet365
This looks to be the best fixture on the Premier League card this weekend with two confident and undefeated sides going head to head. Chelsea have looked irresistible in their two Premier League victories, with new signing Eden Hazard slotting in like he’s played for them for years. The team is playing on the front foot and has notched six goals already. Hazard already has two assists and has won two penalties as well. In fact he won more spot kicks than any other player in the top European leagues last season and 888sport’s offer of Chelsea to score a penalty at any time at a juicy 9/2 is very tempting. But Reading showed that the Londoners can be vulnerable at the back and it should not be forgotten that Chelsea shipped an alarming 24 goals at home last season. They conceded nine corners against Reading, seven against Wigan and nine in the Community Shied against Manchester City. I don’t see any reason why Alan Pardew will not tell his Newcastle men to have a go, just as they did in their 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge last season, a game in which Cisse scored his wonder goal. The Geordies are 6-1 with several firms to repeat the feat, with Chelsea looking too short at 8/15 and the draw tempting at 3-1. They should win at least four corners.
Andy Murray is 7/2 third favourite for the US Open Tennis starting on Monday, but if you bet with Paddy Power through Oddschecker.com before 3pm on Monday you can get 6-1 when signing up for a new account. Novak Djokavic is the 7/4 favourite.
