Still goalless at St.James’ Park between Chelsea and Newcastle United.
The Blues struggled to find an opener but went close to scoring with Eden Hazard, who was unstoppable in a tight first half. The Belgian star has been put down several times from the opponents but recovered quickly and came back on the pitch.
Newcastle’s defensive discipline is stopping Chelsea so far, despite Maurizio Sarri‘s men managed to get a 79% of ball possession at half-time. Mateo Kovacic was booked earlier in the first period.
