Despite Newcastle’s resolute rearguard, Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma insists he always believed the chances to score would come.
Zouma also revealed Chelsea boss Frank Lampard told the players at halftime.
He said: “The manager said at half-time we have to keep moving them from side to side and try to find the space in between the lines, so that is what we did, and it could have been maybe two or three goals more.
“But we are happy with the goal and the clean sheet as well.
“It is difficult to move this kind of block but you have to carry on and keep going and have the belief.”
