- Newcastle won the match 1-0.

Lampard will continue to shape the Blues with his own vision in mind now that he has a transfer market available to him, and once again in the summer, but keeping senior mainstays around is a crucial way of maintaining a club's identity, which also helping to introduce new players to this club in a natural and organic manner. We know his contract is up at the end of the season, he's in conversation with the club, which are still ongoing.

As the final whistle loomed, Abraham nervously poked his studs at a teasing ball which was smothered by the Newcastle shot-stopper at point-blank range, and there the game evaded Chelsea as Isaac Hayden headed home an injury-time victor.

Chelsea play at Leicester City on February 1 and their next league game after that is not until February 17 when they host Manchester United.

"He's played the last couple of games and done very well".

"If we are looking for people to bring in to the areas to win games when you are controlling it, it is scoring goals". You need to have that killer instinct in front of goal.

"It's quite clear from what I am saying now that we know where we need to strengthen but we shall see".

"We have had more possession than any of our opponents in every game this season".

Australian Open: Osaka vows to block out negatives after 'toughest year'
Defending champion Naomi Osaka stands as an ominous presence for her rivals as she bids to retain the Australian Open title. Japan's world No. 3 Osaka played alongside Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece in a mixed doubles match.

Apparently, the player is open to staying at Chelsea if his demands are met.

Newcastle defender Jetro Willems was stretchered off inside 10 minutes after attempting a tackle on Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Chelsea dominated the match, but were made to pay after failing to clear a corner and Hayden powered home a header four minutes into stoppage time.

Chelsea were handed a boost this week when Reece James became the latest one of their young stars to sign a new long-term deal at the club.

Chelsea remained vulnerable at the back and Federico Fernandez headed wastefully over from a Jonjo Shelvey free-kick.

Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea to find a solution to Willian's contract situation, with Tottenham circling the Brazilian forward, reports Standard Sport.

James was substituted on 74 minutes after twice going down injured.

Saint-Maximin had space to whip in a teasing cross and Hayden got behind Antonio Rudiger for a close-range header that keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga could only push into the net.
