Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Newcastle United at St James Park, former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp, who is also Frank Lampard’s uncle, has given his prediction for the game.
Redknapp has backed Chelsea to win confidently at Newcastle later today.
“Chelsea are involved in the tea time live game when they make the long trip north to Newcastle,” Redknapp told BetVictor.
“The Blues were cosy 3-0 winners over Burnley last time out, following progression in the FA Cup after eliminating Nottingham Forest.
“Forward Tammy Abraham is enjoying a great season and looks poised to be included in Gareth Southgate’s plans for England in the summer, especially if Spurs forward Harry Kane fails to recover quickly enough from injury.
“[Chelsea] are in a strong position to secure a top-four finish in manager Frank Lampard’s first season in charge and they will hope to increase their five-point cushion over the chasing pack in the North East.
“They have enjoyed several big victories on their travels and will be confident of adding to that total here.”
