Newcastle 4-1 Chelsea: Magpies Soar to Sixth in Premier League

Joelinton, the Brazilian forward for Newcastle United, became the standout player of the day as he joyfully netted the team’s third goal in their remarkable 4-1 triumph over Chelsea at St James’ Park. This match, held in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, witnessed the home team assert their dominance over a 10-man Chelsea who faltered in the second half.

The two teams entered the game with distinct goals in mind. Chelsea, aiming to improve their position in the standings following a lackluster beginning to the season, were determined to secure a victory. In contrast, Newcastle was in need of a win in order to keep the top four teams under pressure.

Despite the absence of Mauricio Pocchetino, who was suspended due to his third yellow card of the season in the previous match against Manchester City, Newcastle’s performance was not affected. The team took the lead in the 13th minute when young player Lewis Miley assisted Alexander Isak in scoring a goal.

Nevertheless, Chelsea reacted promptly as Raheem Sterling scored his sixth goal of the season, matching his total from the previous year, with an exceptional free kick. The initial half concluded with a 1-1 result, creating the perfect setup for an enthralling second half.

During the latter half, Chelsea’s composure started to disintegrate as they accumulated numerous yellow cards. Newcastle capitalized on this opportunity and reclaimed the lead through a formidable header delivered by Jamal Lascelles. The Magpies didn’t cease their momentum there, as Joelinton swiftly scored a goal just 90 seconds into the restart, further increasing their advantage.

Chelsea’s predicament worsened when their captain, Reece James, received a red card for a second yellow offense after committing a foul on Anthony Gordon following an error. Gordon ultimately ensured Newcastle’s triumph by scoring their fourth goal.

In the future, Newcastle will encounter a formidable obstacle when they confront PSG in their upcoming Tuesday match. Simultaneously, Chelsea will seek to recover as they go up against Brighton in the following weekend.
