Newcastle United vs Chelsea highlights (1-0)

Newcastle United 1 vs 0 Chelsea highlights 18.1

Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce, speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "I can't fault my players for the way we defended. The big thing we need to do better is look after the ball and cause more of a threat. Today we didn't seem to carry a threat. But one great ball or delivery - you may call it smash and grab, but it is good to see.

"We can't press from the front like Chelsea do. If we did that we would come a cropper. We have to do it our way, a way that suits the squad we have got.

"We can get better but we have had results against the top teams. They find it difficult to play against us and that's what we try to do."

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "We dominated every aspect of the game. They hit the bar in the first half but the rest of the game was ours, except scoring.

"Newcastle defend their box, you won't make too many clear-cut chances against them. We controlled the game, we were at the end of their box. If we want to go to the next level we have to take chances and score in these kind of games.

"The lads have got their heads down in there. But the brutal reality of football is if you don't score, teams stay in the game and something like that happens at the end."
