Newcastle are lining up in a 5-4-1 formation here against Chelsea's 4-3-3.
4'
Saint-Maximin makes an excellent dribble up the left for Newcastle, beating Willian and then getting fouled by the Chelsea man. The Brazilian is lucky to escape a yellow card.
7'
Chelsea are enjoying a long spell of possession but Newcastle look very well organised and difficult to break down.

15'
A nervous moment for Newcastle as Dubravka clears the ball into Abraham, but it deflects away from goal. That's a relief for the goalkeeper.
15'

21'
Jorginho flicks a ball into the box for Chelsea but Willian and Abraham collide with each other and need treatment.
