Newcastle 1 Chelsea 0 – Watch dramatic Isaac Hayden late winner and official match highlights here
It ended Newcastle 1 Chelsea 0 on Saturday night.
The visitors dominating the game in terms of statistics.
Apart from the one that involves putting the ball into the net.
For all Chelsea had the possession and most of the shots.
It was Newcastle who came closest in the 90 minutes, Joelinton very unlucky to see his header come back off the woodwork.
Kepa hadn’t had a serious save to make though, that is until the 94th minute.
Newcastle’s first corner of the game cleared by Willian but Allan Saint-Maximin’s excellent deep cross reaching the head/face of Isaac Hayden and three points to NUFC!
