Chelsea continued their winning run in the Premier League by defeating Newcastle United 2-0. Although Chelsea dominated the game, there were plenty of chances for the Blues to completely kill the game after an own goal from Federico Fernandez gave them an early lead. Timo Werner missed a couple of great chances, but made it up through his individual brilliance to set up Abraham for Chelsea’s second goal.
Mason Mount, who has been an integral part of Lampard’s team has revealed Chelsea players are tough on each other in order to get the best out of them. Speaking after the Newcastle match Mount said “I said to Timo in the first half, ‘that’s a goal for you, you need to score them’ because I’ve seen them go in day-in and day-out in training. He’s a top player and he needs to be harsh on himself to score those. He knows that and, if it comes next week, he’ll put it away. I was disappointed with my one as well because I feel I should be scoring those. We’re all tough on each other and tough on ourselves because we want to be pushing to get number one.
We need to have that in the group where if someone doesn’t score or makes a mistake, we can tell them. Chelsea teams in the past had that in their group and we need the same in our group. If we do, we’ll have a top chance of winning trophies.”
