GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!
OF COURSE THEY HAVE! NEWCASTLE HAVE EQUALISED!!!!

Giroud is convinced he’s been elbowed in the face and falls to the floor. He’s right, he’s been hit, but it’s an accident. Yedlin keeps going, crosses to the near post and Joselu gets ahead of Luiz who has totally switched off. It’s such a weird goal. Should that have been allowed to stand? 5:38pm
80 mins – Newcastle 0 Chelsea 1
Newcastle’s average position is so deep, and Chelsea’s so advanced, that it looks like they’re both playing in the same half.
Now is time for Newcastle to attack and see what can they get out of this one. Kilbane on co-comms is convinced it’s not a foul on Alonso for the penalty by the way. I need to see it a couple more times before I’m convinced he’s not wrong.

And now Benitez is going to have to defend (ironically) himself against his negative approach to this game.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!
HAZARD SCORES! FOOTBALL 1 ANTI-FOOTBALL 0
Hazard powers his shot into the left side-netting, Dubravka guesses the right way but can’t get close enough to it.

PENALTY!
IT’S A PENALTY! I WAS GOING TO SAY
Chelsea have all the ball in Newcastle’s half, Newcastle wait for a mistake, Chelsea pass side to side but can’t find an opening, Newcastle clear it.
BUT NOW IT’S A PENALTY! Alonso goes into the box, Schar slides in and fouls Alonso, it’s a clear foul. Penalty.

RUDIGER HITS THE BAR FROM 30 YARDS! OOOOOOHHHH BABY THAT WAS GOOD! This is football! I remember now! Everything has changed, the world is made of colour, sounds, vibrancy, I can feel again. My family… I must phone my family. Nature, clouds, a flower on a sunny day. Oh what a time to be alive! This is football and Rudiger has hit the bar! What a world, full of emotion, tension, electricity – can you taste it? The air! It’s there to breathe. Take it in, fill your lungs. Remember the rattled cross bar, the sight of that piece of metal wobbling like a when you’ve drunk too much coffee. Do you remember that feeling too? A caffeine buzz! Oh think of the rest! A walk up a hill – the view spectacular. A delicious pint in a warm pub on a winter’s day. Oh my, this is just too much. And all from that stunning punt from 30 yards, crashing off the bar.

Matt Ritchie runs in and scythes down Hazard, raising the entertainment level to the ‘Antiques Roadshow’ tier. Riveting.

Newcastle United 0-0 Chelsea

HALF-TIME: NEWCASTLE 0-0 CHELSEA

Chelsea have enjoyed almost 80% possession in the opening 45 minutes. Eden Hazard has been extremely influential, but Newcastle have managed to stop the clear chance at goal from the Blues. Maurizio Sarri will be asking for more from his team to be more decisive in their play in and around the box.
It’s goalless at the break at St James’ Park. Chelsea have had all the play in the opening 45 minutes, although they’ve struggled to carve out clear-cut opportunities in the final third. Pedro had the Blues’ best opening of the half, only to curl his left-footed strike wide of the post. At the other end, Salomon Rondon placed a header wide of the target. Neither have displayed a clinical edge in the final third and both managers will want to see an improvement.

45′ + 1′ HALF-TIME: NEWCASTLE 0-0 CHELSEA

45′ + 1′ Hazard makes a surge into the Newcastle box, but there are several black and white shirts there to stop him shooting. He has to go back towards Jorginho before the attack peters out.

45′ There will be one minute of added time.

45′ BLOCK! A poor clearance from Dummett puts Newcastle in trouble. Azpilicueta latches on to the loose ball and strikes on the half-volley. His effort is blocked by his own team-mate Morata in the six-yard box, saving the home side.

43′ Clark clears Hazard’s first cross behind for a corner. From the second set-piece, Rudiger connects on the half-volley, only to send his effort wide of the target. Chelsea have not been at their best in front of goal thus far.

21′

Chelsea have some concern over Hazard. Diame has just trod down the back of his knee and lower leg, and the winger requires some treatment. He is able to hobble off, but he is struggling.

19′
The visitors decide to focus their attention on possession-based football again. This has not been the most liveliest of openings, but Newcastle will be satisfied with their efforts so far.

17′
SHOT! Chelsea send in a corner from the left and it causes all kinds of confusion in the penalty area. The ball eventually falls to Rudiger, who sends a shot with the outside of his boot wide of the target.

15′
Newcastle are sitting so deep it is allowing Luiz and Rudiger to move well into the Magpies half. It’s attack versus defence, and the defence is not being troubled.

13 min
Still much of the same from both sides, with Chelsea keeping hold of the ball and not taking any risks in the final third, and Newcastle looking to launch counter-attacks if they are able to regain possession.
