Chelsea vs Newcastle LIVE: Latest Premier League team news, updates & analysis from Stamford Bridge

CHELSEA 2-1 NEWCASTLE – MORATA

33: Newcastle’s lead didn’t last long. The Premie League champions have switched gear and find themselves ahead.

Victor Moses drives forward down the right flank before chipping a cross into the six-yard box where Alvaro Morata rises above Lejeune to nod home.

32: Thibaut Courtois must have been watching Manuel Neuer highlights on the journey to Stamford Bridge this morning. He’s taking lots of extra touches inside his penalty area and inviting pressure.

I suppose ‘experts’ would tell you that he’s trying to draw Newcastle out to make space for Hazard and co.

30: Newcastle have done well to weather the storm after Chelsea’s equaliser. They’ve seen more of the ball and have slipped back into their defensive shape.

28: Serious bantz going down at the Bridge folks. Referee Kevin Friend has just clattered into the back of Fabregas and knocked him flat! The Spaniard takes it in good humour, I think…

25: Eden Hazard has been directly involved in seven goals in his eight Premier League appearances against Newcastle (five goals, two assists).

CHELSEA 1-1 NEWCASTLE – HAZARD

22: Seconds after Christensen nods against the woodwork, Chelsea are level.

Lejeune fails to clear a bending cross from Azpilicueta, and it drops for Eden Hazard to convert with a thumping half-volley into the ground and over Darlow.

21: Chelsea furiously claim for a penalty after Darlow bundles into Morata, who goes to ground. Nothing given. If that’s not a penalty then I really don’t know what is.

19: Should be 1-1. Cesc Fabregas sends an inch-perfect pass forward to Eden Hazard, whose poked effort is parried away by Darlow.

16: How have Chelsea responded? They’ve not really. Fabregas takes a Blues corner but  Darlow makes the catch with Rudiger lurking. The Spaniard sends another in but Christensen nods over under pressure.

15: Since the start of last season, Dwight Gayle has scored 25 league goals for Newcastle, more than double any other player.

CHELSEA 0-1 NEWCASTLE – GAYLE

12: It’s been coming. Chelsea have been far too sloppy in possession and they’ve paid the price. Kante and Alonso fail to clear a routine punt forward with the Spaniard tapping it into the path of Dwight Gayle, who converts into an empty net.

12: Good move from Newcastle. Hazard’s flick goes straight to Diame, who sprays it forward to Perez. The midfielder cuts it back for Merino but his side-footed shot is a comfortable take for Thibaut Courtois.

9: Close! Fabregas and Hazard play a cheeky one-two just outside the area but the attack breaks down….
