It was a heartbreaking defeat for Chelsea as a stoppage time goal from Isaac Hayden ensured the Magpies took all three points at the St James Park.

See the player ratings for this game below:

Kepa: Had nothing to do for most part of the game except to pick the ball out of his net right at the death. Could have done a bit more to save that late goal. 5/10

Reece James: Was quite dangerous in the first-half with some good deliveries, but pulled off in the second half through injury. 6/10

Christensen: Had a good game and never lost concentration all game. Unfortunate to be on the losing side. 6/10

Rudiger: Gave the ball away a couple of times but was strong in defence nevertheless. Was having a decent game until he lost Isaac Hayden in stoppage time for Newcastle to score. 5/10

Azpilicueta: Made some good forward runs down the left but wasn’t comfortable crossing the ball with his left foot. 5/10

Jorginho: Struggled to find his forward men as Newcastle sat deep and covered the spaces. Had lots of the ball but no penetration. 5/10

Kante: Had a good chance in the first-half but fired straight at the keeper. Worked very hard in the middle of the park. 6/10

Mount: Lacked creativity when he had the ball. Wasn’t just his day. 4/10

Willian: Probably one of his worst games in a Chelsea shirt. His tricks didn’t work and he seemed to lose his confidence in the second half. 4/10

Hudson-Odoi: Lacked effect in the first-half but got better in the second period. However, no end product from his attacking play. 5/10

Abraham: No clear-cut chance for the striker as he had to feed from craps. Worked hard upfront at times. 6/10


Barkley: Added spark to the team after coming on for Mount. 6/10

Emerson: His end product was missing but he seemed to inject some spark into the attack after coming on. 5/10

Batshuayi: Came on late for Tammy Abraham but didn’t have an impact.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.

    Gutless, half hearted performance. Seem to be content with 4th be lucky to stay in top 6. Urgently need striker and defenders with minerals.

  2. What Chelsea lacks are good wingers with good dribbles & creativity….
    Especially, a left footer
