Chelsea vs Newcastle: Conte's men level on points with Manchester United

Antonio Conte: Chelsea manager is charged by FA after dismissal

Chelsea- Newcastle Eden Hazard

Today Newcastle will face top-six opponents - his former club Chelsea. Morata has scored five of those headers, with the other four coming from Michy Batshuayi, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta. I look forward to Murphy & Atsu as wingers and Ritchie in the No.10 role.

Newcastle pushed for an equaliser in the second half but Chelsea were given the perfect opportunity to put the game beyond doubt when Moses was fouled by Ritchie in the area.

As Chelsea celebrated a successful end to the season the message expressed by many banners on show at Stamford Bridge was more appreciative of the interim manager.

However, he's moved away from that formation against the big six this season, playing a 4-4-2 away to Manchester United two weeks ago and employing a back three/five against Chelsea on Saturday. With him we change our system.

As Chelsea turned the screw, they had a few penalty appeals turned down by referee Kevin Friend.

Alvaro Morata also netted his ninth goal in 14 Premier League appearances but it was Hazard who was voted man of the match, and afterwards Conte was asked how he would advise England manager Gareth Southgate to go about stopping Chelsea's star man in Russia next summer.

This could easily have been one of those slippery games that inexplicably falls through the fingers.

Newcastle need upgrades in nearly every position, but as the transfer window approaches they remain in the grip of an unpopular owner who has absolutely no incentive to invest in an asset he's trying to offload.

A £300m bid headed up by the financier Amanda Staveley to buy Newcastle is currently on the table.

The 2-1 defeat extends Rafa' unwanted streak to 1 win in 13 against the Blues, although, Gayle's goal was the first a Rafa Benitez side has scored against Chelsea since Xabi Alonso's goal for Liverpool back in October 2008.

He did a tremendous job with the side on the pitch, as he secured a Champions League berth in addition to winning the Europa League. "It confirmed that we can do a job, we have the tools to do the job". Overall he had a quiet game and that was a detriment to us. "But they are there because they deserve to be". After 33 minutes, Chelsea led. Benitez's supporters might say that highlights the impact he can have during games; critics might ask why he was unable to exact such a response from his players from kick off.

Benitez offered tremendous freedom to the telepathic duo of Juan Mata and Eden Hazard, without losing defensive stability.

United take on fourth-placed Arsenal later on Saturday in the highlight Premier League clash of the weekend while City host West Ham United on Sunday.
