Sarri shocked by Benitez’s negative Newcastle

Posted August 28, 2018

"I am very proud to be Watford coach".

Converting from the penalty spot in emphatic fashion, Hazard also wrote his own piece of individual history by scoring his 70th Premier League goal for Chelsea.

Watford, who have recorded wins over Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley and Crystal Palace so far, host Tottenham Hotspur in the league next Sunday.

That gave Chelsea a helping hand after 76 minutes of frustration, the Blues having until then failed to break down a Newcastle side set up to soak up pressure. The benches are on the line of the half, so for me it was really hard for me to say if it was a penalty, the same for the action on the other side.

A controversial penalty awarded to the Blues in the 75th minute helped them on their way to three valuable points, leaving manager Maurizio Sarri craving a smoke after a nervous all around affair.

The win propelled Chelsea to second place in the table, only behind Liverpool on goal difference, with nine points while Newcastle's slump at home continues and the loss could be a cause for concern.

Now with just two goals in 2018, while Chelsea's midfield trio did try their best to get Morata involved, they could never get on the same page and the former Real Madrid man always looked a step behind the pace. That means for all of their possession, Chelsea weren't able to conjure a single genuinely great chance against Newcastle.

"Man City had 71% possession (against Wolverhampton Wanderers) and didn't win. I'm not happy with how we gave the ball away".

"Yesterday I saw some games with the same system, and it depends on the players that you have". Last season, Chelsea lost here, [Manchester] United lost here, Arsenal lost here, so it's not so easy to play here against this opponent.

"We are missing five or six players".

"On first viewing I thought Fabian Schar's challenge on Marcos Alonso was a penalty but, after watching a replay, the Newcastle defender does get a touch on the ball", wrote the ex-Premier League official for the Daily Mail.
