Chelsea have enjoyed a ideal start to the 2018/19 Premier League season with three wins in three matches. On one occasion, he was even kicked off the field by a particularly crude challenge.

A frenetic end to the game saw three goals scored in the final 15 minutes of normal time.

However, they came up against a stubborn and well-organised defence at St James' Park and struggled to break Newcastle down despite a dominance of possesion that bordered on the ridiculous.

"Against these teams you can lose because they play a crucial pass, or ball behind, or fantastic cross, so to conceded two goals, a penalty that was doubtful, and a free-kick that was doubtful". I think it's not so easy to play here against this opponent and this match has been more hard.

Jurgen Klopp: 'Liverpool have to do a lot more'
Brighton were caught out for Liverpool's victor as James Milner robbed Yves Bissouma of possession 15 yards outside his own area. Albion defender Lewis Dunk is likely to miss the game with the ankle injury he sustained in last week's victory.

We asked the question on Sunday evening - Was Rafa Benitez right to use those tactics with players available and opposition quality?

Chelsea joined Liverpool and Watford in having a 100 percent record after three games, having previously beaten Huddersfield and Arsenal.

But when Marcos Alonso's shot deflected off DeAndre Yedlin and went into the back of the net with three minutes left, Chelsea were in front again, a lead they did not give up a second time.

Given Newcastle's tactics, it was undoubtedly a tricky afternoon for Jacob Murphy, who will be hoping for a significantly better season than his first on Tyneside. "It's very hard to get results in the Premier League and to win three in a row is something special, something incredible", Gracia told the club's website. The absence of Newcastle's primary players was noticeable and had a negative impact on the overall flow of the game.

After a summer of uncertainty over his future, Hazard played his first full 90 minutes under new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, and he said Chelsea were worthy of claiming the three points away from home.

"If [Chelsea] called me 40 days ago, I think it's because they wanted to see my football here, I think".

When you are Newcastle United you have to manage in a different way because you are in the Premier League. Wilfried Zaha pulled one back late for Palace.
