On the 4th of July this year, Frank Lampard became the first English coach to manage Chelsea in over two decades. Lampard, former midfielder of Chelsea who is considered as the legend of this club and English football will now steer his beloved club with a new role. However, Frank’s starting days have had their challenges. 

Chelsea’s double defeat to Liverpool and Valencia in the Champions Trophy in September at Stamford Bridge spoke volumes about the team’s current state. This made Lampard the first Chelsea manager in more than 30 years not to win any of his first four home games.

But Lampard’s firm belief in his team was not wavered by these losses and he was confident the Chelsea’s supporters will give him and his young squad time to challenge for trophies.

He shifted his focus onto the senior players in his team and in a crunch meeting, urged them to step up and secure the wins rather than leaving it to the youngsters. 

Chelsea’s young academy graduates had secured crucial wins and captured the headlines with their remarkable performances in the Champions Trophy. Ever since Lampard’s crunch meeting, Willian, Pedro, Michy Batshuayi and Ross Barkley have all scored as the Blues have racked up four straight wins in all competitions, scoring 15 times and let to Chelsea’s upturn in form.

With their recent 1-4 win against Southampton, Chelsea is looking well organized as they move up to  5th position on the points table equaling with Leister city who holds 4th position. And now Chelsea is all set to aim towards the top 4 positions in order to qualify next champion’s trophy.

In order to do so, they have a big task ahead in the shape of Newcastle United which is not having one of their best seasons so far and stand quite below at the points table. But no one can question the team’s ability to beat the giants of the game on their day. 

This is going to be a highly anticipated game with an unpredictable outcome just like the games that can be played at online casino by and it will take place this Saturday at Stamford Bridge which is home of boys in blue and they’ll be entering the arena as favorites against Newcastle United who are still seeking redemption from their poor run of play this season. 

Even though Newcastle United isn’t having quality time in the field of football there are some concerns with the Chelsea players as their midfielder Jorginho is walking a suspension tightrope after picking up his fourth yellow card of the season against Southampton on Sunday. The Italian international was booked early on at St Mary's for a foul on Shane Long, with the 27-year-old picking up his fourth caution in the Premier League.

As such, the Chelsea midfielder is now just one booking away from a one-match suspension, ahead of the return of Premier League football after the international break, when the Blues face Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, October 19.

Newcastle and Chelsea came across each other 165 times and Chelsea has been a dominant of the two as they have managed to gather 73 wins against their rival club whereas Newcastle could manage only 53 wins and 39 games ended as a draw. These are the numbers that Newcastle should forget while competing this Saturday against Chelsea and keep their focus on 90 minutes of play.
