Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas believes Newcastle could frustrate Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday but the former Arsenal striker still expects Chelsea to get all three points.

Nicholas predicts a 2-1 victory for Chelsea.

Explaining his prediction, he told Sky Sports: “This is everybody’s banker of the weekend, but Newcastle have gone to Tottenham and won, which people questioned.

“They then beat Manchester United at home but it wasn’t sensational. Steve Bruce will be saying that this is a free swing.

“Chelsea have the youngsters and are playing well, but they will have a roller-coaster season, which is what I said from the start.

“These are the games that it took Liverpool years to overcome – these teams sit in and don’t threaten, but try to frustrate.

“Newcastle do this and they did it at Tottenham, this is the type of team they are. Chelsea will get there, but I don’t see them dominating unless they score in the first 10 minutes – I see it being tight.”
