Frank Lampard’s Chelsea side suffered yet another league defeat this evening after a dogged Newcastle United team held the Blues out for the ninety minutes. To add to the London club’s horror, English midfielder Issac Hayden even went on to score a winner in the 95th minute of stoppage time to send St.James’ Park into delirium and the Chelsea faithful into stunned silence.
Here Are The Chelsea Player Ratings:
Kepa Arizzabalaga – 5.5
Quite literally had nothing to do until the final knockings of the game, but arguably should’ve gotren a stronger touch on the Issac Hayden header that eventually found its way in to the empty net.
Reece James – 7.5
The young full-back had a scintillating first-half down the right flank as he delivered a flurry of top quality balls into the box. Unfortunately had to come off injured late on.
Andreas Christensen – 7
The big Danish centre-half held his ground quite well and was confident in stepping up and linking up play in the middle of the park. Didn’t make any notable mistakes either.
Antonio Rudiger – 6.5
The German was completely solid for most of the encounter and did well to pass the ball around as well. Had a slight blemish as he was caught in two minds for the Magpies’ goal.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 6.5
The full-back played most of the fixture at left-back and then had to move over to the right side after James went off. Wasn’t effective going forward but didn’t have any problems at the back.
N’Golo Kante – 6
The Frenchman seemed to be wasteful on the ball at times, but did make some neat passes in the middle of the park. Needs to regain to his former confidence to keep a place in this Chelsea team.
Jorginho – 7
The Italian was very much the commander of the entire fixture as he controlled the movement of the ball from the opening whistle. Tried to progress into the Newcastle box but struggled to get involved in the final third.
Mason Mount – 5.5
The youngster had a couple of presentable chances in the first half but didn’t show any conviction. Played some loose passes and was rightly taken off in the second half.
Callum Hudson-Odoi – 6.5
The speedster tried to inject pace and energy every time he got the ball but didn’t seem to have the cutting edge in the final third. Needs to improve his decision making as well.
Tammy Abraham – 6.5
Had a plethora of chances to open the scoring over the course of the tie, but couldn’t find the net on a single occasion. Held the ball up well but was taken off as Lampard searched for a winner.
Willian – 6.5
The Brazilian was wasteful on the ball at times and had a glorious chance to find the bottom corner in the second half as well. To his credit, he worked extremely hard off the ball.
Ross Barkley – 6.5
The Englishman came on in place of the struggling Mount and made an instant impact. Did well to keep the ball moving but couldn’t produce anything definitive.
Emerson – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
Michy Batshuayi – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
