Newcastle United emerged triumphant against Chelsea with a convincing victory, thanks to goals from Alexander Isak, Jamaal Lascelles, Joelinton, and Anthony Gordon. This win served as a perfect response to their previous defeat to Bournemouth at St James’ Park. While three goals in the second half secured the three points, it was Isak’s early goal that set the tone for the Magpies.

Isak, absent since the defeat to Borussia Dortmund, marked his return with a goal, scoring his eighth of the season just 13 minutes into the game. He capitalized on a splendid pass from Lewis Miley, slamming the ball past Robert Sanchez. Chris Waddle, the BBC Radio 5 Live commentator, praised Isak’s composure in front of goal, highlighting the precision of his finish.

Waddle commented, “Great finish. Great play. The first touch is good, and the second chance is even better. Sanchez had no chance.

He just turned and put the ball in that top corner. Great finish.” The acclaim wasn’t reserved solely for the goalscorer; Miley, who secured his inaugural Premier League assist, received commendation post-match. Eddie Howe, United’s head coach, lauded Miley’s decision-making and pass, describing it as ‘incredible.’

“I think the biggest compliment I can give him is the pass for the goal because it can be very easy at that age to want to shoot and get individual glory,” remarked Howe. “But he has made an incredible decision to slip Alex in.”
