Chelsea strengthened their bid for a top four finish in the Premier League after Willian’s second-half strike handed the Blues a 2-1 win over Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

Following Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to West Ham earlier in the day, Maurizio Sarri’s side had the opportunity to open a six-point gap over the Gunners in fifth and they made the perfect start through Pedro’s early strike (9).

Newcastle responded before half-time thanks to Ciaran Clark’s powerful header (40) but Willian’s curling effort (57) secured Chelsea all three points.

The win sees Chelsea move to within a point of third-placed Tottenham, who face Manchester United on Renault Super Sunday live on Sky Sports, while defeat leaves Newcastle in the relegation zone.
