Chelsea's Marcos Alonso claims victor and defends penalty decision

Sarri's Napoli pushed Juventus all the way in Serie A last season

Then, the game sprung into life with plenty of late controversy at St James' Park on Sunday.

"I think it's better [to defend looking at the ball]".

Pointing to the superior quality in the Chelsea ranks, he explained that he felt he had no other choice.

Less than four minutes later Chelsea hit the victor. It's an own goal from DeAndre Yedlin.

Newcastle's 5-4-1 prevents this by having an extra man in the middle because of the back three.

"Everyone was thinking of a draw when they scored but we are Chelsea and we never give up", Hazard said. Willian & Ross Barkley drops to the bench.

"When I was at Napoli we were attacking all the time and ideally I'd like to play with five strikers but now I'm at Newcastle and I have to manage what I have".

The supervisor also revealed that Game of Thrones effects work is the only thing he will be working on until May. Fans were hoping for a full "Game of Thrones" Season 8 premiere date, or a full trailer .

Instead, with Benitez electing to hand debuts to both Fabian Schar and Federico Fernandez, the 24-year-old was forced to watch from the stands.

Hello! Welcome to the Live Updates of Newcastle Vs Chelsea.

Hazard, on his first start of the season, proved to be Chelsea's key man once more on Tyneside , with the Belgian converting from the penalty spot after being a serious thorn in Newcastle's side.

Redknapp called the way the Magpies set out to play an embarrassment, while Souness decided that he'd ignore a potential vital factor in determining league position at the end of the season - goal difference - and get beat 3-0 instead of 2-1.

'The Premier League is always like this - every weekend is the same, ' said Hazard, who was making his first start of the season. "It was a good win and the three points are massive for us". Without Shelvey in the lineup, the Magpies struggled to pass the ball and spread the field. The English midfielder has a fantastic range of passing that could get this side out of trouble if being pressed back for large portions of the contest. Hernan Crespo, back from loan at AC Milan, snatched a fortuitous opening-day win over Wigan Athletic and, not for the last time, Didier Drogba proved the scourge of Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

In team news, Sarri is likely to keep with summer signing Jorginho anchoring midfield, whilst Álvaro Morata is also likely to lead the line. Of that 81%, it seemed as though Eden Hazard accounted for at least 25% on his own.

Joselu leveled for Newcastle soon after, but Yedlin's unfortunate deflection allowed Chelsea to maintain Maurizio Sarri's 100 percent winning record in the Premier League.
