Resurgent Chelsea Clinch Third Successive Win

English Premier League

Result: Newcastle United 0-2 Chelsea

Date: 21 November 2020

Venue: St Jame's Park

Chelsea moved top of the Premier League standings with a 2-0 victory away to Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.

Antonio Rudiger, Ben Chilwell and Timo Werner are brought into the line-up as Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic drop out,

The Blues got the opening goal after 10 minutes when Newcastle's Fernandez deflected the ball into his own net from Mason Mount's corner.

Chelsea should have had a second goal in the 30 minute when Werner gifted time and space in the box, but the German forward somehow fired wide from 12 yards.

Newcastle had a couple sights of goal of their own towards the end of the half, with Saint-Maxum going closest with a deflected effort from close range.

Werner's poor finish continued in the second half as the Blues star failed to the find the back of tnet on 54 minutes with only Karl Darlow to beat in the box.

However, Werner turned provider 10 minutes later to pick out his strike partner Tammy Abraham, who made no mistake from close range to double Chelsea's lead.

Just moments after Longstaff had cracked the crossbar for Newcastle, Werner had the ball in the back of the net on 75 minutes but the strike was disallowed for offside.
