Newcastle needed a victory to maintain pressure on the top four, while Chelsea wanted to climb the standings after their dismal start.

After receiving his third yellow card of the season during the match against Manchester City, Mauricio Pochettino was forced to watch from the sidelines. On minute 13, he witnessed the home team take the lead thanks to a pass from adolescent Lewis Miley to Alexander Isak.

However, ten minutes later, Raheem Sterling scored with a skillful free kick for his sixth goal of the year, matching his total from the previous year.

With a series of yellow cards in the second half, Chelsea looked like they were losing their minds, and Newcastle took the lead again through goals from Joelinton and Jamal Lascelles inside ninety seconds of the restart.

After making a mistake and taking down Anthony Gordon, captain Reece James saw red for a second yellow, making the situation worse. Gordon then made it four.

Chelsea takes on Brighton the next weekend, while Newcastle takes on PSG on Tuesday.
