As we enter into Game week 7, Newcastle welcomes their favorite opponents Chelsea at St. James Park. This fixture has been full of events and surprises as Chelsea hasn’t manage to win a game at St James Park for last 3 seasons.
As expected Newcastle players were pumped up, showed intensity and were all over Chelsea, something that was missing in them. The Blues on the other hand were poor in the 1st half; played with a very slow tempo and were uninspiring in the way they went forward. As a result, Newcastle took lead in 1st half with a Perez strike, brilliant first touch though and doubled in 2nd half through Wijnaldum’s glance across the goal into bottom corner from Perez’s corner. But the game was saved by the Super sub; Willian and Ramirez for the Champions as they both scored a goal each to ensure Chelsea doesn’t face defeat for the 4th time this season.
Here’s a 5 talking points of the Match.
