Chelsea did their homework and beat Newcastle United 2-0 this Monday, at Stamford Bridge, in a match valid for the 24th round of the Premier League. Despite having entered the field with more than 1000 minutes without scoring a goal for the Premier League (since November 7, 14 games), Timo Werner was the name of the match.
The German gave the pass to Giroud’s goal that opened the scoring after 31 minutes of play. The Frenchman had just taken over from Abraham, who left the match injured. At 38, it was Werner’s turn to make his mark, breaking a long fast without rocking the nets in the Premier League.
With the result, the Blues pushed West Ham down and entered the Champions League qualifying zone with 42 points, in fourth position. Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have five wins and a draw this season.
