Timo Werner got on the scoresheet for Chelsea after going 100 days without scoring in the Premier League. The German striker got the second goal as the Blues earned all three points in their 2-0 win over the Magpies.
Here is what he said after the game.
Chelsea's Timo Werner speaking to BBC Sport: "Very important win - it was close because VAR nearly didn't give me the goal. Whole performance in the last few weeks were very good, winning all our games and didn't concede a goal. We're back on track and that's the important thing."
On joining Chelsea during the pandemic: "Not only difficult for me it's difficult for everyone, new country, new league and we started the season well, scoring goals and making assists but then I had a long period without scoring but at the end you have to keep pushing because it's a team sport and we want to win. Doesn't matter if I score or someone else as long as we win."
On arrival of Thomas Tuchel: "It's helped me that someone can scream at me in German - he's a really good guy - has a good idea of the football we want to play and when we have more and more training sessions with him we will get better and better.
"A few weeks ago we were somewhere and nowhere and we were a lot of points behind fourth place, we want to keep going. Only four points to second place and lots have said we won't reach top four at the end of the season but here we are. We have a good shape, we're back on track."
