Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to three points as Reece James scored twice in a 3-0 win at Newcastle as Liverpool and Manchester City stumbled at home in the title race on Saturday.
Chelsea were without the injured Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Mason Mount, but the European champions still had far too much class at St James’ Park.
James produced two stunning finishes from right wing-back before Jorginho’s penalty rounded off the scoring.
Liverpool blew at 2-0 lead at Anfield as Brighton battled back to earn a deserved 2-2 draw.
While City are now five points off the top after Pep Guardiola’s 10 men were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace at the Etihad.
