Top 3 performances in Chelsea vs Newcastle United
N’golo Kante was handed the captain band in the absence of Thiago Silva and did complete and utter justice to it. The midfield general was all over the pitch and broke up Newcastle’s play several times.
Moreover Kante was involved in orchestrating and creating several of Chelsea’s forward moves. He made a total of 7 interceptions and 4 tackles in the match. More than any other player on the pitch! Quite remarkable from the French tank.
Once again Mason Mount has proven his haters wrong by showing how effective he can be in a central role. The English man was a key component for Chelsea and created a lot of chances.
In the first half Mount had more touches than the entire Newcastle United team. This just goes to show how he was involved in almost everything.
Tammy Abraham is slowly turning into a criminally underrated player. The striker has once again shown why he was Chelsea’s top scorer last season.
Abraham has highly improved his hold up and link up play and that is showing. Moreover his chemistry with Werner is proving to be a valuable asset for Frank Lampard.
