Newcastle United smash listless Chelsea, finish 10th

May JohnsonMay 16, 2018

The defeat, coupled with Liverpool's comfortable 4-0 victory over Brighton at Anfield, means Chelsea have to settle for finishing fifth in the table and miss our on Champions League football next season.

"We came here to give a performance and take three points".

Antonio Conte had his trousers pulled down in front of the 52,000 supporters at St. James' Park and the millions watching around the world.

That makes Chelsea's lifeless display all the more worrying.

Their penultimate four games of the season aside, the Magpies have been soaring in the second half of the campaign.

Perez got in on the act with a scuffed attempt which nearly found the far bottom corner but from Chelsea's perspective, Antonio Conte's men reached the break having failed to register a single shot. Newcastle continued in the ascendency, riding every Chelsea challenge; Shelvey saw another well-struck effort whistle past the post before Perez went close just before halftime. Newcastle have enjoyed a fairly strong return to the Premier League under Rafa Benitez and will head into Sunday's match with safety confirmed and a chance to spoil any potential Chelsea party.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang became the fastest Gunner to 10 Premier League goals and notably has status as the last player to score in Arsene Wenger's time at Arsenal.

Chelsea were defeated by Newcastle United 3-0 on the final day of the Premier League season, on what was one of the darkest days in recent memory from a Blues perspective. None of the intensity and organisation that had helped them win the Premier League title last season was on show; they looked passive, disinterested and as if they would rather be anywhere else than the North East.

But another 12 months on, Blues fans are feeling off-colour once again.

"Newcastle were brilliant, I must admit", Redknapp said.

'For this I am the first person to answer for this as I am the coach of this team and I am the first person to answer for this game'.

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho was sacked as Chelsea manager the season before Conte arrived.

"And we've seen slowly but surely that the manager has become overcome with the situation, he's not his normal self".

Benitez's representatives have been in talks with managing director Lee Charnley over a new contract and the club's summer transfer budget.
