Chelsea made it three wins from three matches with their win last night at ST.James park. They last won at this stadium 7 years ago.
Former Chelsea Manager, Rafa Benitez, is known for giving former team tough time, whenever the two sides meet. The match against Chelsea yesterday was not just a match between Benitez and old team – It was also a match between Maurizio Sarri and Benitez.
Sarri took over from Benitez at Napoli and guided them to second place finish last season and he is also Chelsea’s present coach. So he (Rafa Benitez) had a point to prove.
Rafa as predicted, caused plenty of problems for Chelsea with his defensive formation. Even Sarri could not help but said “I never saw Benitez in Italy with five defenders, so I was surprised.” during his post match interview.
Chelsea fans are however happy with the win and they have been reacting to this on social media:
what they said:
Newcastle 1 – 2 Chelsea
They said Chelsea never wins at St. James Park
But Oloye SarriKI Bobo is here to ammend it
He sees everywhere as his constituency unlike one African Leader I know.
