Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle: Report, Ratings and Reaction as Sarri's Blues Edge Past Magpies

Chelsea claimed all three points on Sautrday evening, as they narrowly beat Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea started the game brightly and took the lead early on. David Luiz’s long ball in behind the Newcastle defence found Pedro’s perfectly timed run, and the winger took a single touch and dinked the ball over goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

Newcastle grew into the first half and created the better chances. The equaliser eventually came from a Matt Ritchie corner kick, Ciaran Clark getting away from his marker and expertly finding the bottom left hand corner with a fantastic header to get the Magpies level.
