Having played every minute of the Blues opening three league games, the Italy international's latest appearance was the most reminiscent of his time at Napoli. Previous year we were the best team in the bottom ten, so maybe you could say for that, if you have heart, you know your heart and you have to try to embrace what you have.
It's usually three months, but my feeling is in this team there are a lot of intelligent players so I hope only two months. "It's a pity because we were very close", Benitez said.
Newcastle managed to level matters in the 83 minute when Joselu latched onto a cross from DeAndre Yedlin and powerfully headed home, 1-1.
"I play a little bit more forward", the 27-year-old Kante said. "I think that this team from a character point of view is a strong team".
'It is not about me and the tactics, it is about players, the results and the bigger picture.
Redknapp called the way the Magpies set out to play an embarrassment, while Souness decided that he'd ignore a potential vital factor in determining league position at the end of the season - goal difference - and get beat 3-0 instead of 2-1. I want to enjoy, I want to have fun, press the ball.
Newcastle responded with a goal from Joselu in a rare attack and looked set to steal a point before Chelsea's last-gasp victor made it three successive victories for the Blues.
First up: a huge moment of controversy arrived as Marcos Alonso surged into the box and won a penalty kick, although Fabian Schar looked to have got the ball with his challenge and a piece of Alonso too. "If players have different opinions then we have to speak about it, that's it, and then we stick to the plan".
One of the key men in that Napoli side was Brazilian born Italy worldwide Jorginho, who Sarri made sure followed him to Stamford Bridge earlier this summer in a £57 million deal.
"It's not too easy to play here, this match has been more hard than Italy", said the former Napoli coach, whose side ultimately overcame Rafael Benítez's back five to rise to second in the table. Arsenal's two defensive midfielders were high up the pitch on Jorginho, which meant the defence moved up, and it led to a very simple goal.
Signed for a reported £57 million, Jorginho is just a midfield metronome who is fundamental to Maurizio Sarri's style of play. So, I think we did very well.
