We learned 5 things from Chelsea`s triumph over Newcastle

Chelsea extends their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions by coasting over Newcastle United to cement their position atop the Premier League table, with Manchester City and Liverpool also failing to win.

We compiled a list of what we learned from the game.

1. Chelsea’s most productive player has been Reece James.

Don’t take our word for it. The figures are self-evident. The offensive fullback has been crucial to Thomas Tuchel’s system throughout the season, as evidenced by his performance against Newcastle.

In what appears to be his best Chelsea performance yet, he scored two brilliant goals, made three important passes, and created one big chance.

2. Chelsea dominated the game in every facet.

Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel thrashed Newcastle United in their own backyard with 79% possession. Every time they had the ball, they looked like they were going to score.

The Blues had 19 shots on goal, six of which were on target and three of which were goals. They had three great chances, but only one of them was converted.

3. Chelsea leads the league by three points.

As we previously stated, Liverpool and Manchester City’s failure to win on Saturday gave Chelsea a well-deserved lead in the league table. They have 25 points after ten games, with one draw, one loss, and eight victories.

Chelsea could be on their way to capturing their first league title in years if things keep going this way.

4. Another clean sheet.

Tuchel has created an impenetrable structure around his team, so it doesn’t matter who he puts on defense; the team still looks solid. This season, they have only allowed three goals, the fewest of any side in Europe’s top five leagues.

Maybe that’s where the idea that they’re a defensive club comes from. Chelsea is, without a doubt, one of the most offensive teams in the world. Only Liverpool has scored more goals in the league, with 26 goals in ten games.

5. A change in the front three had little effect on their performance.

We’ve grown accustomed to seeing Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner so much that nobody expected Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, and Kai Havertz to function well together. They did, however, show that they may be the starting strikers in the coming games, at least until the injured attackers return.
