Chelsea eased their way to a comfortable defeat of Newcastle on Saturday.

The Tynesiders’ poor performance was summed up by BT Sport co-commentator Steve McManaman, who went on a rant in the final moments of the game after a Newcastle throw-in.

Werner himself, along with Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech and late substitute Olivier Giroud, really all should have scored against Steve Bruce’s limp Magpies, who never got going at St James’ Park.

A Federico Fernandez own-goal opened the scoring in the first half before Tammy Abraham secured all three points for the Blues with their second after a remarkable run from Timo Werner to set him up.

The Blues never got out of second gear, but they didn’t need to as they strolled to a 2-0 win with Newcastle limp and listless under Bruce once again.

As Chelsea’s missed chances began to mount, the hosts began to scent an unlikely opportunity, with Isaac Hayden getting in a dangerous position before being hauled back for handball, and Joelinton curling an effort narrowly wide.

Bruce responded by throwing on Almiron in place of Javier Manquillo and Newcastle came close to halving the deficit, Longstaff ramming a shot against the bar from 30 yards, then Andy Carroll finding the side-netting in stoppage time.
