It was a disappointing afternoon for Chelsea on Saturday as they lost out 1-0 against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
Isaac Hayden netted the only goal of the game, with the Newcastle midfielder scoring in injury time to give the Magpies all three points in a game that Chelsea had dominated for large periods, only to fail to take their chances.
It was a setback for Chelsea in the battle to finish in the top four in the Premier League, although the Blues were fortunate that other clubs around them also dropped points over the weekend, with third-placed Leicester City losing out against Burnley and Manchester United losing against Liverpool, while Tottenham drew with Watford and Arsenal and Sheffield United shared the spoils at the Emirates Stadium.
But several Chelsea players failed to impress in the north east, with fans having their say on how the Blues performed via football.london.
