CHELSEA vs. NEWCASTLE UNITED – English Premier League (Round 15)

Chelsea FC midfielder Eden Hazard celebrates with teammates after scoring the team's third goal and his second of the match against Newcastle United in their Premier League match at Stamford Bridge in London on Saturday

The Magpies captain suffered a foot injury and is closing on a return to fitness, however, the clash at Stamford Bridge has proven to have come by too quickly, with former Blue Christian Atsu also set to miss out.

Chelsea rather eased off in the second half, with Hazard coming close to a third on two occasions, but the Belgium star eventually made the points safe with an impudent penalty.

The finish capped a fine performance from Hazard, who had earlier drawn the champions level after Dwight Gayle's surprise opener, with Alvaro Morata's header making it 2-1 before half-time. "But they are there because they deserve to be". "He has more experience and I think he can make the difference in any game".

Hazard also provided a potent reminder of what England can expect when they face Belgium in the World Cup in Russia next year.

The report suggests that the Cape Verde international is already in high demand, though, with a number of suitors emerging in recent weeks.

"We scored two fantastic goals", said Klopp. It's hard to see how the Swans will outmanoeuvre the drop this time.

Pre-game pictures of dressing rooms, players warming up and kits laid out in-front of lockers are so commonplace in football that said images are often glossed over in anticipation of the actual match.

"Our line-up surprised everybody", he added. Twice it can happen.

The Italian's biggest issue appears to be the regularity with which he thinks his team is being made to play domestic games in such a quick turnaround, citing this as the fourth this season.

Former Premier League champions Leicester City, enjoying a revival under new boss Claude Puel, won 1-0 at home to Burnley courtesy of an early strike from flying winger Demarai Gray.

Antonio Conte has recalled Cesar Azpilicueta to the defence after the Spaniard was rested in midweek while Antonio Rudiger keeps his place ahead of Gary Cahill.

Newcastle were enjoying only fleeting spells of possession and creating very little, but Ayoze Perez arrowed a shot wide on the hour as the visitors sought a surprising equaliser.

Hazard slots home the penalty.

Conte's decision to rest him against Swansea seems to have paid off, although Chelsea were poor to watch in his absence.

"When I take the ball in my hands, it's instinct", he told Sky Sports.
