Chelsea moved one point behind third-placed Tottenham with a victory over a Newcastle side who are now in the relegation zone.

Willian won it for Chelsea in the second half with a fine curling finish after being played in by Eden Hazard.



Pedro gave the Blues an eighth-minute lead when he collected David Luiz's ball over the top, took a touch, then shot past Martin Dubravka.



But Newcastle equalised through Ciaran Clark's powerful header when he got between Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz from Matt Ritchie's corner.

With nine minutes left, 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi, the subject of a £35m bid from German champions Bayern Munich, came on for only his second Premier League appearance.

The Belgian led Chelsea's attack, which resulted in their second goal as he ran at the Newcastle defence, offloaded to Willian who, from a tight angle, cut inside onto his right foot and curled a beautiful effort past Dubravka with the ball going in off the post.

There were boos heard inside Stamford Bridge at half-time, but Sarri's side were greatly improved in the second half, with Hazard a much more prominent threat.
