A couple of noteworthy stats stemming from Chelsea’s loss to Newcastle United this afternoon have come to light online.
Thomas Tuchel’s men marked their return to action recently.
After getting off to a good start to the campaign thanks to a penalty shoot-out that sent Southampton off at the Carabao Cup in the middle of the week, the Blues turned their attention to the Premier League in a meeting with Newcastle United.
And, when all was said and done, Chelsea just kept rolling.
A predictably dominant display eventually culminated with the visitors emerging on the right side of a 3-0 scoreline, a result which, due to Liverpool’s stalemate with Brighton, guides the European champions three points clear at the top of the league. top English category.
Reece James proved to be the star of the show at St. James’ Park, scoring a double, before Jorginho’s kick added some sparkle to the scoreboard later:
