Newcastle United return to Premier League action on Sunday and are on the look out for their first three points of the 2018-19 season as Rafa Benitez's men host Chelsea at St James' Park.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference on Friday, Sarri said: "For us Willian is a very useful player so I am sure he will remain here for this season, and I hope for the future, but a new contract is out of my responsibility". We needed to move the ball very fast and be patient.

Made no mistake from the spot when it really mattered but was frustrated from open play as Newcastle United teamed up on the right flank.

'You can be a little bit better on the ball, so I am not happy with how we gave the ball away, but at the same time, we have to understand what we have and how we can maximise what we have.

Both performed well, particularly in the second half when the pattern was the same but Chelsea delivered more crosses towards Alvaro Morata as they started to run out of patience.

On Chelsea's penalty, he said "I don't know if it was a penalty".

They had 1098 touches, again a league-high and again over 100 more than second place.

McCain had been a frequent critic of Trump, whose "America First" ideology McCain believed parted from the country's values. Mr McCain was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour in July previous year and had been undergoing treatment.

"Everyone knows that. If players have different opinions, then we have to speak about it".

"For a team like us to lose six players, we had problems".

Sarri, who succeeded Benitez at Napoli, admitted that he didn't expect such tactics from the Newcastle boss.

Replays suggested Schar had got a foot to the ball, but Newcastle responded seven minutes later through Joselu's near-post header, benefiting from some fortune of their own, with DeAndre Yedlin appearing to foul Olivier Giroud in the build-up.

"I have never seen a Rafa Benitez side play with five defenders".

"The match has been very hard, they were so compact it was impossible to have spaces, so it was really hard", the coach told Sky Sports. "I feel exhausted tonight, the whole team is exhausted but we have the points".

"To draw with five minutes to the end for us it would have been more hard. This team, from the character is a strong point of view".
