Chelsea scrap to win over Newcastle, Fulham impress against Burnley

Newcastle striker Joselu and midfielder Kenedy

It is not the first time Benitez has been on the receiving end of barbed attacks from the television studio as Sky pundits Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp delivered a stinging appraisal of the display.

"It will take two or three months".

But Joselu equalised for Newcastle only for a DeAndre Yedlin own goal three minutes from full time to seal Chelsea's third successive Premier League victory. "Because if I want to press in the other half, if I want to look only at the ball with five defenders, I lose immediately the metres".

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has handed Eden Hazard his first start of the new season as the Belgian global replaces Willian in attack with Pedro keeping his place having scored in his last two games. "But I think, in this case, with this team, there are very intelligent players". Talking about it, Spanish left-back said, "I think I touch the ball and then I get in front of the player, in between the player and the ball and when I'm going to pass to [Olivier] Giroud, I just went down because he makes me down".

Chelsea dominated the game from start to finish, enjoying a whopping 81% share of possession.

Clearly referencing the Bianconeri's €112million signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, Hamsik said: "Quite simply, there are very strong opponents in Italy, teams built for years to win in Serie A and now seem built to win in Europe too".




Sarri added: "Doing things this way depends only on you".

"I like to play with five strikers if I can".

@ConorMcNamaraIE: While they probably didn't deserve it, Newcastle really should have won at Cardiff last weekend.

On Sunday, luck played the determining factor - good luck for Chelsea, and bad luck for one of the USMNT's best players. "Jamaal hopefully will be fine for the next game".

The former Napoli boss, whose side have joined Liverpool on nine points at the top of the table, said: "We knew it would be a hard game for us, especially for us and for every team". This is the sixth successive top-flight campaign they've failed to win either of their opening two league games. Replays suggested the Magpies debutant had got a foot on the ball but had gone in with a scissor-like motion. "It's not easy, but I have to try", Sarri told reporters.
