Manager Frank Lampard says Chelsea need to "remain humble" after moving second in the Premier League table following a solid win over Newcastle.

An own goal by Federico Fernandez in the early minutes and a Tammy Abraham strike secured a fifth successive victory in all competitions for Frank Lampard sides as they climb up the table.

Chelsea's fifth league win of the season had left them briefly on top of the table, ahead of overnight leaders Leicester on goal difference, before Tottenham moved two points clear at the summit after beating Manchester city by 2 goal to nothing later on Saturday evening.

Frank Lampard had this to say "I know we are top of the league for five minutes but we have to think about the big picture," Lampard said, speaking before the Tottenham game.

"We know that there is improvement and work to be done. We have to remain humble."

Chelsea oozed quality through out the game, Newcastle goal keeper Karl Darlow producing excellent saves to deny the excellent Timo Werner as well as a close-range Abraham header also after ziyech picked him out with a quality cross.

But Abraham made sure of the points with a smart finish following Werner's pass inside the box eighteen after coming close to scoring with a header in the early minutes of the first half.

after Newcastle had threatened through Isaac Hayden and Joelinton in the early minutes of the second half, while Sean Longstaff hit the bar for the hosts towards the end of the game with a spectacular shot that beats Mendy but failed to beat the goal post.

This was Chelsea 6th clean sheets in seven for Blues games. Despite the goal from Abraham and assist from Timo Werner here are the 3 players who were top of their game.


Kurt zouma has been in great form since the start of this season which has lead to call ups by France national team and this weekend he was at it again with some many interception and tackles, here are his stats from the game.

Kovacic who scored twice during the international break for Croatia, also was impressive in the game as he has so many dribble and takes on including some interception at the middle of the park. Here are his stats from the game.

Ngolo Kante is also another player that has been impressive this season both for club and country after netting the victory goal against Portugal during the international break in a 1 goal to nil victory against the current European and national league champions.
