Reece James double inspired Chelsea to what could be a huge win in the Premier League title race.
“After a difficult first-half, Thomas Tuchel’s side looked short of ideas amid some key absences in attack, though eventually found a way to convert their dominance into a quantifiable lead when the England international struck in the 65th-minute.
“James doubled his tally just over ten minutes later and, three minutes after that, Jorginho ensured a routine win with a trademark penalty after Kai Havertz was brought down in the box by Karl Darlow.
“Chelsea, it must be said, weren’t overly impressive for much of the game, although the deep defensive block Newcastle played with could well have had something to do with it. Still, on a day when both ManchesterCity and Liverpool dropped points, they managed to find a way,” the Evening Standard reported further.
