Chelsea move to second with a win over Newcastle

Super Eagles midfielder, Victor Moses returned to the Chelsea starting line up on Saturday in the Premier league game against Newcastle.

The Blues needed to come from behind to Newcastle after Dwight Gayle gave the Magpies the lead in the 12th minute.

Newcastle’s lead did not last for too long as Eden Hazard restored parity for the Blues nine minutes after.

Moses then proved his worth when he supplied a wonderful cross for Alvaro Morata who expertly headed in as Chelsea went in front in the 33rd minute and kept the slim lead until halftime.

In the second half, the contest was evenly poised, and it was looking like there will be no additional goals but that was not the case as Hazard completed his brace; scoring a 74th minute penalty for the Blues.

With this, Chelsea have momentarily moved level on points with second-place Manchester United.
