Chelsea celebrates Hazard’s opening goal.

Goals: Joselu 83′ – Hazard (penalty) 76′, Yedlin (own goal) 87′

The duel between Newcastle and Chelsea only became truly interesting in the last 15 minutes of the match, when the two teams took turns scoring.

With nine absolute points after three matches, Chelsea ranked second, behind Liverpool due to poor goal difference.

Hazard (blue shirt) played well, despite making his first start in the Premier League this season.

After the first two rounds keeping the same lineup and winning all six points, Maurizio Sarri decided to experiment as a guest of Newcastle.

But `Chich chohe` is not an easy opponent to bully.

Chelsea’s dangerous situations all stem from individual efforts, of which Hazard is the bright spot.

Chelsea got a lucky second goal when the Newcastle defender scored an own goal.

Hazard was excellent but not enough for Chelsea to penetrate Newcastle’s defense for an hour, even though the Premier League’s Best Player of the 2014-2015 season tried to move wide.

Sarri returned to the weapon that defeated Arsenal, the side-kicks by sending Oliver Giroud and Willian onto the field.

Yedlin collapsed on the field after bringing the ball into his own net.

On the coaching bench, Benitez shook his head in frustration, but on the field, the Spanish coach’s students were still burning with fighting spirit and scored an equalizer after just seven minutes.

It was thought that Yedlin and Newcastle would have a beautiful ending on the evening of August 26, but everything changed quickly after just four minutes.

Squad

Newcastle: Dubravka, Fernandez, Clark, Schar (Muto 79′), Dummett, Yedlin, Sung-Yeung, Diame, Ritchie, Murphy (Perez 73′), Rondon (Joselu 62′).

Chelsea: Kepa, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Rudiger, Kovacic (Barkley 79′), Jorginho, Kante, Hazard, Pedro (Willian 69′), Morata (Giroud 65′).
