Chelsea continues to perform under the new coach Thomas Tuchel that replaced Frank Lampard recently. On Monday, The Blues won their fourth league match in a row by beating Newcastle United with 2-0 score.
Chelsea strengthened its position
The Blues now stand on the fourth position. The recent win made them supersede the champions Liverpool with 2 points. But in goal difference, they are 5 points ahead than West Ham United. But Newcastle is relegated to the last spot just above the relegation zone.
The credit for Chelsea’s win goes to Tuchel
Thomas Tuchel brought Timo Werner brought into the game after the striker was made a desolate player by the earlier manager Frank Lampard. Both Tuchel and Werner are Germans. Tuchel said that he wanted the German striker to get to his form and replaced him with injured Tammy Abraham.
Tuchel also brought the goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga back into the game. Arrizabalaga was replaced by Edouard Mendy due to his erratic performance. And both the replacements worked well for Chelsea.
Timo Werner and Kepa Arrizabalaga proved their worth
Chelsea won the match with 2-0 score and Werner was crucial in making the goals. The first goal came when Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow pushed Werner’s cross to Oliver Giroud who made no mistake in turning it a goal. The second goal was shot by Werner himself in the 39th minute.
Kepa Arrizabalaga also proved his worth by saving a strong header from Joe Willock in the 75th minute. It was a close save that prevented Newcastle from even scoring a single goal.
