Chelsea 1 Newcastle 0 – Watch the official match highlights here
It ended Chelsea 1 Newcastle 0 on Saturday.
Newcastle failing to have a single corner or effort on target.
Although early on they did cause a few problems the odd time they pressed.
The Chelsea defenders showing why they had already conceded 14 goals in eight Premier League games and only kept one clean sheet.
Sheffield United, Wolves and Norwich had all scored twice against Chelsea but in their tenth game of the season, Newcastle didn’t look like scoring once, never mind twice for the first time.
Some great saves by Dubravka and excellent blocks/challenges from the likes of Schar and Clark.
However, if you don’t have any corners or shots on target, a bit difficult to score a goal.
