Chelsea made it three wins out of three to start their Premier League season after triumphing 2-1 over Newcastle at St James' Park on Sunday.

Newcastle were sitting incredibly deep, it will have been hard for Morata to find pockets of space.

- Chelsea looked like an unstoppable side with 82 percent of the possession and 913 completed passes in 95 minutes of action.

With Maurizio Sarri now in charge, Chelsea has put out some really positive vibes in its first two matches, winning both, including a victory over Arsenal last week.

Newcastle's joy, though, was short-lived when Yedlin went from hero to zero after deflecting the ball into his own net in the 87 minute to give Chelsea a 2-1 win.

Merkel and Putin tackle tough topics in meeting outside Berlin
Trump last month slammed Germany as " totally controlled by Russia" because of its dependence on Moscow for natural gas supplies. Ms Merkel told reporters she would discuss the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria , as well as Iran and the Nord Stream 2 project.

The Italian global is far from a goalscoring midfielder but we've already seen that he's pretty brilliant at taking penalties after his sublime spot-kick on his Premier League debut. We were good, better in the second half, but it was very hard.

It seems to be working, because Chelsea have won their opening two games against Huddersfield and Arsenal, albeit by conceding quite a few goals. "It's usually three months, but my feeling is in this team there are a lot of intelligent players so I hope only two months", he said. A year ago we were the best team in the bottom ten, so maybe you could say for that, if you have heart, you know your heart and you have to try to embrace what you have.

By contrast, Chelsea spent nearly £130m on just two players, keeper Kepa and midfielder Jorginho, and Benitez knows that will make a repeat of last season's heroics all the more hard. For Hazard, a player at his best when unburdened by defensive responsibility, the attacking emphasis is good news.

"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".

The Blues host Bournemouth on Saturday, with Loftus-Cheek competing with N'Golo Kante, Ross Barkley and new signings Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic for game time. Against Newcastle, he touched the ball 40 times more than in any game in Conte's final year in charge. The introduction of "Sarri-ball" has yielded three wins from three games, and it's already clear that Hazard will be central to it. Sarri has introduced him gradually, but Hazard is still Chelsea's main man.
