Not many players had good games on Sunday at Stamford Bridge when we were beaten 3-0 by Chelsea and so exit the FA Cup at the second hurdle (4th round).
We played well in the first half, but Newcastle still went in 2-0 down at the break, due to being caught short at the back by two quick Chelsea breakaways.
The Chelsea goals looked too easy for them, and we have to ensure we are not caught short at the back in our upcoming games.
In the second half, Chelsea completely controlled the game and won in the end by a comfortable 3-0, and it showed the growing gap between the top six clubs in the Premier League and the rest.
Jonjo Shelvey – in action at Stamford Bridge yesterday
No player had an outstanding game for Newcastle, but the best of the bunch were Jonjo Shelvey who got 33% of the vote and goalkeeper Karl Darlow who got 29%.
Jonjo tried his best in the center of midfield, and maybe he’s coming into some top form at the right time?
Goalkeeper Karl Darlow played well too, especially in the second half when he made some very good saves to keep the score down.
Karl’s place will come under pressure if Newcastle can sign 29-year-old Sparta Prague goalkeeper Martin Dubravka before Wednesday night’s transfer deadline.
