The Editor asked me to give 3 positives and 3 negatives from Chelsea 2 Newcastle 1, here they are... Newcastle falling behind after only nine minutes but showing good character and determination to stick at it and deservedly equalise before half-time.

The Editor asked me beforehand to write about 3 positives and 3 negatives from the game, so here goes… Despite suffering what was an inevitable defeat, this was one of Newcastle’s better performances of the season.

As has often been the case in recent months, the back five performed admirably only to be undone by minor errors and lapses in concentration.

A class goal from Willian helped by slack NUFC defending deciding the game, as Rafa’s makeshift team were unlucky to come away without a point.

Saturday’s defeat means it is now 11 league games so far this season where Newcastle have conceded the opening goal and then gone on to lose the match.

With Huddersfield looking all but doomed and Claudio Ranieri’s arrival at Fulham not quite having the desired impact, two of the relegation places look like they may already have been decided, leaving Newcastle and three or four other sides to fight it out to avoid the final one.

As with our recent defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United, Chelsea never needed to get out of second gear and didn’t have to exert themselves too much to seal the win but the big difference at Stamford Bridge, was in Newcastle’s ambition and threat going forward.
