Timo Werner shrugged off his international embarrassment and inspired Chelsea to extend their scintillating recent form with a 2-0 win over Newcastle at St James' Park.

Chelsea responded by doubling their lead in the 65th minute after a scintillating surge by Werner, who burst through the Newcastle back-line before unselfishly squaring to Abraham who slotted home.



Abraham was inches from connecting with a Werner cross and extending his side's lead in the 15th minute, then Werner himself was equally close to meeting a low cross from the busy Reece James on the right.



The half-time loss of captain Jamaal Lascelles to injury hurt Newcastle, and a mistake by his replacement Fabian Schar teed up another chance for Werner, who was put through one-on-one with Darlow but inexplicably sought to square the ball to Ziyech, and Newcastle cleared.



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.

Newcastle keeper Karl Darlow tipped a Werner effort round a post in the fourth minute, then made another fine save to deny Abraham who should have done better after connecting with a Hakim Ziyech cross.

Four days after featuring in Germany's humiliating 6-0 Nations League defeat to Spain, the £48m man shone against Steve Bruce's Premier League strugglers as Chelsea made it five straight wins in all competitions.
