Chelsea boss Frank Lampard praised Timo Werner for his special praise after the German in his team’s 2-0 win against Newcastle in St James starred in ‘Park

Werner’s surge over the center line in the second half set up his side’s second goal for Tammy Abraham after an early Federico Fernandez own goal set the Blues on their way to a fifth straight win

Lampard said, “He (Werner) had a few chances and sometimes you are not, but I thought he was a real threat to us”

“You need players of this quality to win games and the pace at which he moves the ball is something special. He’s been so selfless and you rely on the players to be top notch”

While Lampard refuses to let himself be carried away by his squad’s increasingly formidable form, he pointed to their defensive performance as another reason they might be in better shape to start a title challenge

“It’s nice to be in the position we are in and to have confidence in the goals we conceded that were a problem for us earlier this season and in parts of last season, but we have to keep working and to be consequent“He said

“The international break was a challenge, but we came here against a team that we lost to last year We dominated possession and scored our goals We could have scored more goals ”

Magpies boss Steve Bruce lamented his side’s inability to make the most of their opportunities and admitted that conceding early goals is becoming a worrying habit

Bruce said, “This is the fifth time we’ve been one, five or ten minutes behind, and we have to take care of it”

“We were better in the second half and we climbed higher and had some big moments but unfortunately we couldn’t take one and Chelsea punished us with a bad goal that we gave away”

“I’m frustrated because we can’t get a result. I don’t make excuses, but we’ve played three of the top six in the past few weeks. It was difficult, but there was a lot to like about that second half performance”

Bruce announced that he had decided not to risk top scorer Callum Wilson due to recent Achilles tendon issues, but hopes he will be back on the squad for the busy Christmas season

“I couldn’t risk it today because there is a risk of an Achilles tendon and I’ll be missing for the next six weeks,” said Bruce. p>

“One of the reasons we bought it was to add some goals for us, which it obviously did We now have two or three coming back to help this situation and obviously Callum is one of them””
