Jamie Redknapp, the son of the QPR manager Harry, thinks Newcastle can hold onto their record of Jose Mourinho never getting a win at St. James’ Park – and he is predicting a 2-2 draw tomorrow in what could be the game of the weekend fixtures in the Premier League.
Jamie Redknapp – predicts a draw
Jamie thinks that the returning Moussa Sissoko could be a pivotal player for Newcastle – and this is what he has said about the game:
“This will be one of the games of the weekend and really looking forward to it, the two sides are in really good form.¨ “Chelsea bounced back from a poor result at Sunderland with a three goal demolition of Tottenham and look like they have their groove back again.”
“But they are going to be missing Matic who is an integral part of this team. Sits in front of the back four, protects the back four and mops up so much of what other teams try to do.”
“They’re playing a team full of confidence and they have Sissoko back. When I look at Newcastle I think he is one of the key players for them. He has that pace and energy in midfield and that battle without Matic will be vital.”
“Newcastle have got a good record at St.James’ Park against Chelsea, beating them the last two seasons and they believe they can get something again.” “I’m going for a 2-2 draw.”
BBC Sport’s football ¨expert¨ Mark Lawrenson is predicting a 2-0 Chelsea win …..
Most of the betting has Chelsea 1-2 odds on to win – Newcastle 6-1 to win – with a draw being at around 10-3.
