Newcastle United 1-2 Chelsea: 5 Talking Points

May JohnsonAug 28, 2018

Newcastle United striker Salomon Rondon backs his side's defensive tactics against Chelsea on Sunday, despite their 2-1 loss at St James' Park.

He is the one player who poses a consistent threat.

Even though Newcastle did defend valiantly, especially in the first half, it is believed that Lascelles voiced his disapproval at being told he would play on the right of Benitez's three central defends.

That gave Chelsea a helping hand after 76 minutes of frustration, the Blues having until then failed to break down a Newcastle side set up to soak up pressure. Fernandez was the focus of a number of messages with his display praised by many.

"You have to create chances, you have to be solid and you have to do what you have to do to maximise what you have".

"It's not about me and tactics, it's about players, the bigger picture".

Although it may not have been as fluid as his Napoli side last season, Chelsea's new boss has certainly improved the atmosphere in West London.

Trump’s lawyer warns Americans would ‘revolt’ if he is impeached
One of the executives is American Media chief executive officer David Pecker , a long-time Trump friend. Look, some of Trump's early supporters were clearly grifters looking for a bigger piece of the pie.

"It takes defenders longer because I want to defend by looking only at the ball, and some players have played for 10 years looking at the man, so you have to change the way of thinking of this player, and it's not very easy".

Hazard's goal highlighted an impressive performance on his first start since returning from the World Cup, but Sarri did not intend to have him play the full game.

"Against these teams you can lose because they play a crucial pass, or ball behind, or fantastic cross, so to conceded two goals, a penalty that was doubtful, and a free-kick that was doubtful".

Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg shared that he thought Chelsea were rightly awarded a penalty during their game with Newcastle United on Sunday.

Sarri's post-match press conference saw him quizzed on both key decisions, but the Italian insisted he was not in a position to have a definitive opinion on either incident.

"We knew that it would be a hard game for us, and every team that comes here", Sarri said.

"Each one has his own tools".
