So who was on last week's first goalscorer tip .... at 16/1?

Miguel Almiron is on fire in front of goal ... and so is our Toon tipsterMark Douglas .

Read what he's tipping this weekend.

Win, lose or draw?  

There's been an upturn in the mood after a battling draw at Wolves and FA Cup progress. Chelsea are rightly favourites but with Allan Saint-Maximin back, Newcastle will be quietly confident. Draw, which is a big 10/3 .

Who's a good bet for 1st scorer?

Miguel Almiron is on fire at the moment. After his long barren run he's scored in three successive games and looks full of confidence. He's down to 14/1 first scorer now and 9/2 any time . The returning Allan Saint-Maximin is a decent long shot. He's also 14/1 first goal and 9/2 any time.

Who's on the naughty step? (first card)

Sean Longstaff is set to play again and it'll be him or Isaac Hayden, who oversteps the mark first.

Who's on pens?

Matt Ritchie returned in midweek and is a decent bet to play. If he does, he's on spot kicks. He's a big 18/1 to score first or 6/1 to net at any time.

Will Newcastle keep a clean sheet?

Don't back it. They've conceded in each of their last six matches - a sign that the defensive strength of the earlier part of the season has been diminished by injuries. Both Teams To Score is a very solid 4/5 shout.
