The Magpies displayed brilliance early in the game, but The Blues rallied back, putting up a fierce fight.

In the 13th minute, Newcastle took the lead in a strategic play. Lewis Miley cleverly delivered a horizontal breakthrough to Alexander Isak, who skillfully evaded the offside trap.

Engaging in a one-on-one duel with Robert Sanchez, the Swedish striker faced no significant obstacle in breaking through Chelsea’s defense, altering the score to 1-0.

Chelsea swiftly leveled the score in the 23rd minute. Kieran Trippier’s foul against Raheem Sterling resulted in a free-kick just outside Newcastle’s penalty box. Sterling took charge of the execution and successfully breached Nick Pope’s defenses.

Sterling made another attempt to score just two minutes later, but this time, his long-range shot was easily secured by Pope.

Newcastle countered with a threat a minute afterward, yet Joelinton failed to capitalize on a golden opportunity as his header veered wide to the right.

Chelsea resumed their offensive in the 31st minute with a powerful shot from Enzo Fernandez, but Pope adeptly deflected the ball. He also thwarted Benoit Badiashile’s header shortly thereafter.

Newcastle earned a promising chance with a free-kick in the 43rd minute after Lesley Ugochukwu fouled Anthony Gordon. However, Kieran Trippier’s shot only struck the post. The score remained tied at 1-1 until halftime.

Player Lineups:

Newcastle United: Nick Pope, Kieran Trippier, Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schar, Tino Livramento, Lewis Miley, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon.
