A dominant performance gave Chelsea the three points against Newcastle United as we made it five consecutive wins and 12 games unbeaten in all competitions.
Chelsea were in almost complete control from the first minute to the last as we dimissed and thoughts of St James’ Park being a bogey ground for us after some difficult recent trips to Tyneside.
We had the lead after just 10 minutes through a well-worked short corner, which resulted in Mason Mount sending a dangerous low cross into the six-yard box which the Newcastle defenders couldn’t handle, as Federico Fernandez diverted it into his own net at the back post under pressure from Ben Chilwell.
We had to wait for the second goal despite our possession and making plenty of chances, but it did arrive in the second half when a brilliant run from Timo Werner ended with Tammy Abraham slotting past Karl Darlow.
The only surprise in Newcastle was that we only won by two goals, with Werner having one disallowed for offside and Mount and Zouma also going close.
