3 key battles — Chelsea vs Newcastle

Two goals from Eden Hazard and one by Alvaro Morata earned Chelsea a workmanlike 3-1 Premier League victory over Newcastle United on Saturday. But when you see the ball and get the ball and score, it's good for the team.

Antonio Conte will be happy with his side's performance on the night as the gap with Manchester United thins to zero, ahead of United's clash against Arsenal.

"He's among a handful of players who you can say are unplayable on their day". Chelsea would play nearly 70 games that season in all competitions.

"A teenager in the Czech Republic put on Twitter that I once said I would never manage Chelsea, but that is simply not true". "I had to play Fernando Torres because he was fresh".

Sadly for Newcastle, they have now taken only one point from the last 18 on offer in the Premier League. The Magpies keeper then denied the Belgian a hat-trick when he stuck out a hand to claw away a shot.

Some Chelsea fans had refused to accept the former Liverpool manager from the start.

When Benitez was brought in to replace Roberto Di Matteo - a Stamford Bridge legend - supporters made their feelings known.

Against Chelsea, Matt Ritchie provided reason to pay close attention to the flurry of overlooked pre-game imagery, as a graphic of sausage rolls emerged on his shin-pads as picture of his kit surfaced. Unless his performances improve in coming weeks, Benitez could find his inclusion in the team increasingly difficult to justify.

Three months after his appointment, after an FA Cup tie at Middlesbrough, Benitez expressed his frustration about the continuing protests.

"I saw yesterday the draw and England". The Spain international nodded in from barely a yard out.

Alvaro Morata contested a high ball and it bounced off him and dropped towards Hazard, who controlled his half-volley to perfection, driving the ball into the ground and bouncing it into the far corner of the net. The Ghanaian midfielder's ties to the clubs are still strong, having recently completed some overseas promotional work for the club with Ashley Cole. Now he's handling the rather different challenge of keeping Newcastle in the Premier League. "He has more experience and I think he can make the difference in any game". "He must continue in this way to improve himself".

Today Newcastle will face top-six opponents - his former club Chelsea.

One should keep in mind that Terry's renaissance under Mourinho was largely down to the Portuguese's 'pragmatic' tactics.
