Willian gave Chelsea the lead again after Eden Hazard found the winger in plenty of space, the transfer-linked Brazilian beautifully curling the ball around Dubravka. The January transfer window will play a vital part of Chelseas season, with Saturday's game showing once again how much the Blues miss having a true striker as a focal point. The defender played a terrific through ball to Pedro that led to Chelseas opening goal and, while Newcastle had plenty of chances, Luiz helped out defensive partner Rdiger on several occasions to keep the Blues in charge. Newcastle face a FA Cup replay against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night before they return to Premier League action at home to relegation rivals Cardiff City on Saturday.
