We didn’t expect much out of this game and we didn’t get much out of it.
But we did go ahead in the game with Dwight Gayle’s second goal of the season after 12 minutes but Chelsea were better than Newcastle and had a lot more class in their team.
Alan Shearer had no problems with the 3-1 win by the home side since our players gave everything – we just were not good enough.
But that’s only one point we have gained in the last 6 games and the game at home to Leicester City next Saturday is crucial.
We have now conceded 12 goals in the last 4 games and in the first 11 games we conceded just 10.
No complaints today. Effort was there but beaten by a much better team. #cfcnufc
