Willian, Pedro on target as Chelsea beat Newcastle United

Ciaran Clark equalised five minutes before the break, powerfully heading Matt Ritchie’s corner into the bottom left corner.

Pedro was denied a second goal two minutes after the restart before Willian restored Chelsea’s lead with a curling effort from the edge of the penalty area.

Salomon Rondon came close to earning a point for the visitors late on, but headed Javier Manquillo’s cross just wide of the target.

The win means fourth-placed Chelsea are within a point of third-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who face Manchester United on Sunday, and six clear of Arsenal, in fifth.

Newcastle are third from bottom with 18 points.
