Wil­lian: I want to stay... this is where I be­long

but then fell asleep to al­low Ciaran Clark to nod New­cas­tle level.

The lack of a goalscorer was glar­ing and Wil­lian added: “We started the game well and then the team goes down – and that was the prob­lem.

“We have to solve that. If you are a team that wants to win some­thing, then you have to play for all the 90 min­utes with con­cen­tra­tion and fo­cus.”

David Luiz’s su­perb long ball was fas­tened onto by Pe­dro, who chipped Martin Dubravka.

But Sa­lomon Ron­don and Ay­oze Perez then both missed good chances for the Toon be­fore Clark, guilty of los­ing Pe­dro for the opener, re­deemed him­self by head­ing in Matt Ritchie’s cor­ner.

With Jorginho hav­ing a poor game, Chelsea laboured. But after a half-time rocket from Sarri his team im­proved and Dubrovka pulled off a fine save from Pe­dro.

Then Eden Haz­ard laid the ball off to Wil­lian, who curled a lovely shot into the far cor­ner. In the week Cesc Fabre­gas left for Monaco, Sarri ad­mit­ted that his tal­is­man Jorginho – booed at one stage by home fans – would have been hooked if the Spaniard had stayed.

“He (Jorginho) lost a lot of balls,” said the Blues boss. “He was in trou­ble. If Fabre­gas was on the bench, he would have been on the pitch in­stead.”
