Chelsea 1-0 Newcastle United: Hits and flops | Premier League 2019/20
#4 Flop: Mason Mount
Mason Mount has been brilliant this season and has repaid the faith of his manager by producing solid performances game after game. However, the 20-year-old failed to influence the game against Newcastle the way he would have liked. The Newcastle defenders did a great job on him and were all over him as soon as he received the ball.
The Englishman could manage just one shot at the opposition goal, which was well saved by Dubravka. Apart from that, he struggled to create anything and make any sort of impact.
#3 Hit: Callum Hudson-Odoi
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been brilliant ever since he came back into the side after recovering from a long-term injury, and was the catalyst in Chelsea's victory over Newcastle United. The 18-year-old caused the opposition defenders all sorts of problems with his pace and trickery.
He was lively throughout the 90 minutes and put in some brilliant crosses into the box. Hudson-Odoi grabbed an assist for Alonso's goal- which was his 3rd in two games. The highly-rated youngster is in superb form at the moment and could take the Premier League by storm this season.Modified 21 Dec 2019, 00:48 IST
