For much of the day, the Blues had been frustrated by Newcastle United’s hard-working style, which hampered our ability to produce meaningful opportunities.

After the break, little changed, with Havertz spearheading our attacking efforts and firing a header straight into Martin Dubravka’s gloves.

Taking a pass from Jorginho with a silky first touch, the German finished emphatically with his second and wrapped up the win for a Chelsea side now 11 points clear of fifth place in the Premier League.

Up the absence of Cesar Azpilicueta and Reece James, Thomas Tuchel went with a back four, with Trevoh Chalobah filling in at right back and Malang Sarr on the left.

N’Golo Kante and captain Jorginho returned to midfield, while Hakim Ziyech was brought in on the right side of our attack and Mason Mount was demoted into midfield.

Newcastle made four changes from their 2-1 win over Southampton in midweek, with Eddie Howe keeping goalscorers Chris Wood and Bruno Guimaraes.
