Willian helps Chelsea sink Newcastle United
It was an intense match between Chelsea and Newcastle United in the English Premier League week 22 fixture at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea went up early in the match thanks to a 9th-minute strike by Pedro. After the goal, the Blues fail to capitalise on their early lead and 40 minutes into the match Ciaran Clark levelled the scoreline. The match ended 1 – 1 in the first half. Willian gave the home team the lead again in the 57th minute and that was enough for them to nick the victory.
Sarri men held on to that lead till the final whistle and they took all the points. Chelsea now have 47 points and are still 4th on the EPL log which is 6 points above Arsenal and 1 point below Tottenham Hotspur.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, are now in the relegation zone with 18 points.
