Chelsea moved to the top of the Premier League table, if only for a few hours, after a solid 2-0 win at Newcastle United, their fifth straight victory in all competitions.
Federico Fernandez’s own goal in the 10th minute set the Blues on their way, the Argentine defender poking the ball over his own line while under pressure from Ben Chilwell.
But Abraham made sure of the points with a smart finish following Werner’s pass after Newcastle had threatened through Isaac Hayden and Joelinton. Sean Longstaff hit the bar for the home side in the 65th minute.
Chelsea, who started the day fifth, are top the table on goal difference ahead of Leicester, who are at Liverpool on Sunday.
The Londo club is now top of the Premier League for the first time since Frank Lampard took charge in July 2019.
