Conte's men level on points with Manchester United — Chelsea vs Newcastle

Conte's men level on points with Manchester United — Chelsea vs Newcastle

Reigning English Premier League Champions demolished struggling Newcastle United 3-1 on Saturday, December 2 at Stamford Bridge.

With Pep Guardiola's Premier League pacesetters not in action until Sunday, Liverpool also took full advantage, demolishing Brighton 5-1 as Arsenal and second-placed Manchester United prepared for their evening blockbuster clash. I am happy. But you know very well in this league there is a team doing extraordinary things - that is Manchester City.

Hazard slots home the penalty.

Higginbotham believes the gaps are becoming too great at the back for Newcastle and believes Benitez will instruct his side to defend against the Blues in order to get something from the match.

The Magpies have now lost five of their last six league games and have only won one of their last 19 away games in the top flight, whereas Chelsea record a fifth consecutive win at Stamford Bridge across all competitions.

Gayle celebrates scoring the opener.

Hazard then made it comfortable in the 74th minute by converting from the spot after Victor Moses was brought down.

Seeking to prevent Jacob Murphy nipping in to round him, Courtois was forced to dive at the Newcastle winger's feet but succeeded only in pushing the ball back to Gayle, who stroked it into the empty net.

"We scored two fantastic goals", said Klopp. This is the fourth time.

"Our line-up surprised everybody", he added.

Conte said: "I don't want to complain, but, OK once it can happen".

Mauricio Pochettino's side fell behind to an early Christian Kabasele header.

Hazard stepped up for Chelsea, dinking a soft panenka to his left, with Newcastle's Darlow diving the other way.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's side face a tough trip to Watford, who can draw level on points with the North Londoners should they secure the win. "He has more experience and I think he can make the difference in any game".

Antonio Conte has recalled Cesar Azpilicueta to the defence after the Spaniard was rested in midweek while Antonio Rudiger keeps his place ahead of Gary Cahill.
