The CHE vs NEW match preview –
English giants Chelsea will be playing their third game of the season against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
Chelsea have started their season with a positive front. They won the first two games of the season and are looking to resume the dominance they have had in the English football. Manager Maurizio Sarri has settled in well in the Premier League, and his high-pressure game of football has been a joy to watch. This team have once again become contenders for the Premier League title, the only question is if they will remain consistent enough to remain in the race.
Their opponents, Newcastle United, are a team that have been struggling to return to their glory days. The team did come back from the Championship league and maintained their status in the Premier League as well. However, the administrative problems regarding the owner not giving manager enough funds to spend in this competitive environment and the general consensus of distaste of the executives of this club by the fans has taken the precedence. They are yet to win a game in this season, and they might have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to win this game.
