Abraham scores as Chelsea coasts to 2-0 win over Newcastle

He has four goals in 12 games this season and is combining well with Werner, who had been widely expected to compete against Abraham for a place in the lineup after joining Chelsea from Leipzig in the summer. Even going a goal down initially did little to shake up Newcastle's defense-first approach, and the hosts didn't register a shot on target until the 82nd minute, when Edouard Mendy pushed away a deflected shot.

Tammy Abraham scored in his third club game in a row as Chelsea beat Newcastle 2-0 on Saturday to stay among the English Premier League leaders. Chelsea took the lead in the 10th minute when Federico Fernandez knocked the ball into his own net, and the goal was given despite Fernandez's protests that he had been pushed as Mason Mount's low cross came in.

Timo Werner had a fruitless day in front of goal, missing once and seeing another effort ruled out for offside. The German had more success as a provider, though, dribbling from his own half past two Newcastle defenders before setting up Abraham for a simple first-time finish for the second goal in the 65th. That marked Abraham's third Chelsea game in succession with a goal after he scored against Rennes and Sheffield United before the international break. He has four goals in 12 games this season and is combining well with Werner, who had been widely expected to compete against Abraham for a place in the lineup after joining Chelsea from Leipzig in the summer.

Even going a goal down initially did little to shake up Newcastle's defence-first approach, and the hosts didn't register a shot on target until the 82nd minute when Edouard Mendy pushed away a deflected shot. Isaac Hayden earlier missed the Chelsea goal after a defensive mix-up, and a speculative long-range shot from Sean Longstaff bounced off the crossbar and out of play.
