Eden Hazard's goal was his 70th for Chelsea in the Premier League, overtaking Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in third (69).

The action did not end there though as Yedlin deflected goalwards a low drive from Alonso, and Chelsea held on to claim all three points.

"All my life, I've liked to talk with players, so I talk with players, we decide what to do and then we stick with the plan, so everybody knows that", he said.

Newcastle are yet to win this season with their opening two games ending in a loss and draw.

"He has plenty of experience in Serie A and the Champions League and we know he is relishing the chance to work in the Premier League".

"I want to enjoy, I want to have fun, press the ball", he said.

"When I was at Napoli we were attacking all the time and ideally I'd like to play with five strikers but now I'm at Newcastle and I have to manage what I have". I was watching and I don't agree with some decisions. But despite the victories over Huddersfield and Arsenal that saw the Blues furnish six goals in total, their defence remains a work in progress, most especially highlighted by Arsenal, who exposed Chelsea's liabilities at the back during a 15-minute spell that Sarri described as "horrible" for his side. "We were a bit unlucky when they scored to make it 1-1".

The visitors were handed a huge boost 14 minutes from time as referee Paul Tierney ruled Fabian Schar had fouled Marcos Alonso in the box, despite replays suggesting the Switzerland worldwide had got his foot to the ball. "Starting from September, we play three games a week, so there will be space for everybody".

Chelsea boss Sarri was surprised to have come up against Benitez's defensive tactics, having got to understand his style and appreciate his tactical acumen from their time in Italy.

'When I was with Liverpool, we beat Real Madrid 4-0 at home and we were very offensive, ' he said after the match.

"It's not too easy to play here, this match has been more hard than Italy", said the former Napoli coach, whose side ultimately overcame Rafael Benítez's back five to rise to second in the table.

'I thought Mateo and Eden played very well in the last 30 minutes, but also at that moment, the intensity of the match was going down.

In typical Sarriball fashion, every pass went through the Chelsea No.5 as he ensured the ball was always on the move.
