Newcastle vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal updates as Willock strike opens scoring

Potter: Out of form Chelsea “can improve”

Newcastle host Chelsea in this Premier League clash which could have a big impact on the top four race. The Magpies sit third in the table after a seriously impressive start and will secure that place for the World Cup break if they defeat Graham Potter’s men at St. James’ Park. The hosts start the match six points clear of Chelsea and can extend that to nine making a top four finish tricky for the Blues.

Newcastle have won their last four matches, with Miguel Almiron playing like a man possessed with insatiable goal-scoring hunger. The forward won the Premier League’s player of the month award thanks to six goals in six games whilst Eddie Howe was also named manager of the month for leading the North East side up the table.

In contrast, the pressure on Potter is ramping up following a run of four Premier League games in a row without a win for Chelsea. Back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Arsenal are a significant concern ahead of the World Cup but Chelsea can ease the pressure by defeating Newcastle and closing the gap on the top four.

Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

63 mins: Just under 30 minutes of play left at St. James’ Park. This game has the feel of either a goalless draw or a late 1-0 winner.

Save! Chelsea have grown into the second half and work the ball up to Armando Broja. He feeds it off to Conor Gallagher but shifts to the right and curls a shto at the far corner.

Nick Pope leaps his his left and confidently palms the ball behind for a corner.

Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

60 mins: Kalidu Koulibaly has gone down clutching his hamstring. He’s the captain of the Senegal World Cup team so he won’t want to pick up a bad injury today.

The defender seems okay to play on though.

Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

57 mins: Close! Gallagher steps out of the back line to try and win the ball off Willock but the midfielder shimmies past him and whips a cross into the box.

Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

54 mins: Newcastle have started the second half as the much better side. They’ve kept Chelsea penned in and have intensified their pressing.

Chalobah manages to clear the ball up to Pulisic but he can’t find a way through the midfield. Suffocating stuff from the home team.

Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

51 mins: Chances! Trippier puts a cross into the box that Guimaraes keeps alive at the byline. He nods the ball down to where Chris Wood is waiting but the striker is closed down by Mendy and the ball comes loose.

Newcastle recover and recycle the ball with Trippier flicking it back into the box for Almiron. He squares it to Longstaff who shoots first time and lifts the ball over the crossbar!

Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

48 mins: Miguel Almiron nicks the ball and slides it down the right side of the penalty area where Joelinton collects the ball. He dances inside of Jorginho and fizzes a cross into the box.

It’s a pacey pass that flies over everyone before dropping to a defender and Chelsea work it clear.

Second half: Newcastle 0-0 Chelsea

Kick off: Christian Pulisic has been introduced by Graham Potter to replace Cesar Azpilicueta. Conor Gallagher and Lewis Hall are now playing as wingbacks for Chelsea.

It should be fine: James Maddison plays down injury scare ahead of World Cup

James Maddison insisted he should be fit for the World Cup despite an injury scare in their 2-0 win at West Ham.

The midfielder, called into Gareth Southgate’s England squad on Thursday, went down holding his leg in the 23rd minute.

After receiving treatment on the pitch the midfielder, who had opened the scoring with his seventh goal of the season, gingerly left the field.

With England’s first match just nine days away, even a relatively minor injury could have meant Maddison missing out in Qatar.
