Why three top pundits all expect Chelsea to win tomorrow

Chelsea are heavy favourites against Newcastle tomorrow, with all three of the internet’s favourite tipsters backing the Blues to beat the Magpies at home.

Not one of the three top web predictors, in the form of Mark Lawrenson, Michael Owen and Charlie Nicholas could even forsee Steve Bruce’s team getting a point, as compiled here by Football.London.

Nicholas writing his predictions ahead of his appearance on Soccer Saturday, as he does every week, thinks Chelsea will win 2-1 but preaches caution, pointing out that underdogs have beaten Tottenham and Man U already this season.

Lawrenson is more confident on the BBC, saying we will cruise to a 2-0 win. We are, as he says, full of goals; while Newcastle, well… aren’t…

Owen is a little more circumspect, backing the Magpies to score, but still us to take the three points.

With backing like this, it’s easy to fear complacency. We reckon we will win, but it won’t be as easy as some of these guys think. We’ve conceded against far weaker teams this season, and one day Tammy is going to turn up without his shooting boots.
