Chelsea 1-0 Newcastle United: Alonso makes the difference in tight affair [Tweets]

Marcos Alonso made the difference for Chelsea against a resolute Newcastle United side as they grabbed a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

True to nature, Newcastle United defended in numbers, conceding few opportunities to Chelsea. The Blues, though, did have plenty of chances to break the deadlock, with Willian, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham failing to provide the finishing touches inside the box.

Chelsea finally grabbed a well deserved lead in the 73rd minute, when Callum Hudson-Odoi found Marcos Alonso at the edge of the box, before the Spaniard’s driven shot slammed into the bottom right corner. The hosts held on to the slender advantage for the remainder of the game, and fans hailed Hudson-Odoi for a fantastic performance.

Jorginho bossed the midfield once again and Chelsea fans were all praises for the Italian international.

Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic made all the difference coming off the bench for Chelsea and the supporters lauded the duo.
