Newcastle United player Matt Ritchie has revealed Newcastle United’s gameplan that helped secure a 1-0 victory over Chelsea on Saturday.

According to Ritchie, Newcastle United had a gameplan to stay compact against Chelsea and limit the chances that opened up to Chelsea.

He said: “To score late on is really nice.

“I thought we played really well and limited them to not too many chances. We worked hard.

“We know they are a good side with lots of ability, we knew we had to stay compact, shuggle across the pitch and the longer it goes on, it opens up.”

Despite creating 19 chances against Newcastle United, the Blues lost 1-0 at St James Park.
