Newcastle United find themselves back in familiar territory on Mike Ashley’s watch - back in the relegation zone of the Premier League.

The game was decided by two moments of class from Pedro and Willian but even though they set themselves up defensively they managed to create nine goal attempts.



On 26 minutes United managed to gain a corner kick after good work from Ayoze Perez.



However, despite holding out for seven minutes Chelsea scored without breaking into a sweat.

A Manquillo cross from the right with five minutes left found Rondon at the back post but he headed it wide of the target.

United had opened up the game looking to build confidence and get some nice early touches on the ball to calm their nerves.

Lascelles battled on but Chelsea kept posing tough questions of the United defence and earned a free-kick with 17 minutes left.
