Chelsea and Newcastle will meet in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night. Both sides will come into this game having won comfortably in the Premier League at the weekend. Chelsea are the favourites in this one; however, it will be far from straightforward for the hosts when last season’s runners-up visit Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have had a relatively simple run to this stage of the competition, with home ties against Wimbledon, Brighton and Blackburn. The hosts played a rotated, youthful side against Wimbledon; however, following an early penalty scored by the visitors, the likes of Nicolas Jackson, Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo were called upon. A stronger lineup was fielded in their following two clashes with Brighton and Blackburn.
Newcastle could not have had a much more difficult route to the quarter-finals. Eddie Howe’s men have faced both Man City and Man United, beating Man City 1-0 at home and Man United 3-0 at Old Trafford. Newcastle’s thrashing of Man United was a real shock, with the visitors fielding a rotated team due to injuries.
These Chelsea vs Newcastle stats will provide an insight of what to expect from this clash. If you are planning to place a bet builder on this game, this is the place to look for some key tips.

⚽ Match stats: Newcastle thrive in this competition
Chelsea have struggled against Newcastle in recent meetings, having won none of the last four clashes with Howe’s side. When the pair faced each other in the Premier League last month, Newcastle cruised to a 4-1 win, with the Magpies having a greater share of possession and twice as many attempts on goal.
Chelsea’s form in recent weeks has been relatively poor, winning only two of their last six games, one of which came against a struggling Sheffield United side. The host’s squad remains depleted, with injuries to the likes of Reece James, Ben Chilwell and Robert Sanchez.
As expected, Newcastle have faced difficulty when balancing domestic and European football this season. Despite their valiant effort, the visitors crashed out of the Champions League last week; however, they bounced back strongly with 3-0 win against Fulham on Saturday. The hosts have been boosted by the returns of Sven Botman and Dan Burn, with the latter scoring at the weekend.
Howe has worked wonders with his Newcastle side, and the next step for the club is to pick up some silverware. Expect the visitors to cause some real issues for Mauricio Pochettino’s men – either winning in ninety minutes or taking it to penalties.
🏆 Newcastle double chance @ 1.91
🎯 Shooting stats: Palmer and Wilson to hit the target
Cole Palmer has been key for Chelsea this season, scoring six goals in the Premier League for his new club. The youngster averages 2.52 shots on goal per game, with an average of 0.93 finding the target. Palmer has registered seven shots on target in his last four games at Stamford Bridge.
Alexander Isak was absent from Newcastle’s last outing due to injury, with Callum Wilson starting in his place. The English striker has netted seven times for the Magpies in the league this season, averaging a goal every eighty-seven minutes. Wilson has averaged 3.9 shots per game in the Premier League this season, with two-thirds of these finding the target.
Both of the Englishmen will be hopeful of finding the back of the net for their respective clubs.
🎯 Cole Palmer to have 1+ shots on target @ 1.57
🎯 Callum Wilson to have 1+ shots on target @ 1.57
