Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea: Late goal ends Blues unbeaten run as James off injured

Isaac Hayden scored in the final minute of stoppage time to earn Newcastle United a smash-and-grab victory over wasteful Chelsea.

Isaac Hayden snatched a last-gasp winner as Chelsea failed to make their dominance count in a dramatic 1-0 Premier League defeat to Newcastle United at St James' Park.

Heading into Saturday's fixture on the back of a 3-0 demolition of Burnley, Chelsea had almost 70 per cent of the possession, yet could not pick their way through Steve Bruce's well-drilled side and came unstuck in the final minute of stoppage time.

Having cleared a corner, Chelsea switched off when the ball was worked back in, giving Hayden the chance to head in from point-blank range, though Kepa Arrizabalaga could have done better. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
