Moses Absent As Hazard’s Goal, Yedlin Own-Goal Help Chelsea Pip Newcastle

Adjust Comment Print

Yedlin deflected Marcos Alonso's shot into his own net in the 87th minute to settle a match that had threatened to end in frustration for Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.

"I don't know [about the penalty], I was far from the incident and I am not the referee, and I don't want to be a referee either".

Asked about the planned protest yesterday, Benitez said he had "sympathy" for supporters.

Sarri warned that he generally experiences defensive difficulties when he first arrives at a new club, but is adamant that Chelsea's players are perfectly capable of putting his ideas into action with time. Newcastle's failure to deal with a free-kick ended with Yedlin turning in Alonso's volley through a crowded box and there was no way back for the home side.

Unai Emery opens up on Arsenal tactics
Emery told reporters today: "After the first two matches, we have two defeats and we need to win this match against West Ham. He's a lot more intense, a lot of high pressing and keeping the ball so that it benefits us if we have the ball.

"We had five players out and thought if we were compact we could maybe frustrate them", Benitez said.

It was an unpretty but mostly effective decision, with the visitors taking 76 minutes to make the breakthrough with a dubious penalty and winning it with a Yedlin own goal.

"I think Newcastle are struggling".

"I think every coach comes with new stuff to improve and help us and, of course, Sarri has already taught me many things I never saw before", David Luiz explained. "So I think that Eden will stay with us for all the season". "I like him very much so I hope that he will remain here in the future".

Ronaldo shoots another blank as Juventus beat Lazio 2-0
Striker Gonzalo Higuain also made his debut for AC Milan following his loan move from Juventus , but he had little impact. Ronaldo did join in the celebrations of the goal with Mandzukic and the rest of the Juve players seconds later.

Benitez, though, is not interested in what they have to say and there will be more of the same when Newcastle travel to the Etihad Stadium to play champions Manchester City next weekend.

After four wins and a draw in the last five of these fixtures, it looked as though we were heading for another point when Joselu equalised with only seven minutes left on the clock. It's not easy, but I have to try.

"And this match has been more hard because in Italy I have never seen Rafa play with five defenders. It is easier, for a defender who is 30, it is more hard". "This team, from the character is a strong point of view". This is the sixth successive top-flight campaign they've failed to win either of their opening two league games.
