Eden Hazard, on his first start this season for the Blues, netted from the penalty spot in the 76th minute before substitute Joselu levelled with a brilliant header at St James’ Park.

Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea maintained their winning start to the Premier League season with a victory over Newcastle United in a match featuring three goals in 11 second-half minutes.

But, having been resolute in defence for the majority of the game, Newcastle failed to clear their lines and Marcos Alonso’s shot took a deflection off DeAndre Yedlin.

Chelsea dominated the game with 82% possession and Pedro, Cesar Azpilicueta and Alvaro Morata missed chances.

Antonio Rudiger rattled the crossbar in the 70th minute but Newcastle contained the pressure until Fabian Schar tripped Alonso in the box.

Chelsea’s third win in as many matches moves them level on points with Liverpool and Watford at the top of the table, while Rafael Benitez’s side have only one point on the board.
