Let’s play FIFA 18: Chelsea vs. Newcastle United

Simulating and playing Chelsea’s next Premier League match on FIFA 18. Can the virtual Blues beat the virtual Magpies?

In this series, I will use FIFA 18 to simulate as well as play the next Chelsea FC match -- with the difficulty on the highest level, because much like Chelsea FC, I occasionally like to make things difficult on myself for no reason whatsoever.

The winter cluster of a schedule is in full swing with a midweek Premier League fixture. After a 1-0 victory over Swansea City, Chelsea welcome Newcastle United to the Bridge.

My shot at glory (with commentary):

I’ll come right out and say it, I demolished Newcastle, and it felt great. After weeks of winning by a hair, or drawing in a lackluster fashion, I’ve put forward a dominating performance. They never had a chance.

Fact checking myself, Hazard didn’t sit out against Swansea. That’s what I get for doing this with zero notes on hand.

For the starting lineup I have the following to take on the Swans:

Courtois | Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Kante, Cesc, Bakayoko, Moses | Hazard, Morata
