Chelsea conceded a 12th-minute goal before going on to win 3-1 against Newcastle United on Saturday.
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante insists Chelsea didn’t start well against Newcastle but he was pleased with the reaction of the team after conceding the early goal.
“The game did not start very well as we conceded a goal early, but we reacted well,” said Kante.
“It is important to get the win. We needed to win before the top teams played and it was an important three points.”
