Newcastle United 3-0 Chelsea

Match summary

13 May 2018
Newcastle United v Chelsea

Ayoze Perez scored twice as Newcastle United ended Chelsea’s slim hopes of snatching a place in the top four with a comprehensive 3-0 win.

Dwight Gayle nodded the Magpies into a 23rd-minute lead after Thibaut Courtois had tipped away Jacob Murphy’s header.

Perez scored his first in the 59th minute when he flicked in Jonjo Shelvey's half-volley from close range.

Four minutes later, Perez struck again with his sixth goal in eight matches after Florian Lejeune knocked back Shelvey's deep free-kick.

A much-changed Chelsea side offered little and only a string of first-half saves from Courtois prevented them suffering a heavier defeat.

Newcastle, promoted last season, end the campaign in 10th place, while Chelsea finish fifth, five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
