Chelsea were electrifying at Stamford Bridge as they cruised past Newcastle by 5-1 in a premier league fixture played this evening.
The win handed caretaker manager Guus Hiddink his first home win since he returned to manage the Blues and Spanish international Pedro grabbed himself a healthy brace. Diego Costa was voted man-of-the-match after opening the floodgates of goals that saw Chelsea race to a three goals lead within 16 minutes.
An absolutely delighted Hiddink told BBC Sport: “We can be pleased with the performance of the guys. We tried to surprise them in the beginning. Happily it worked out.
“It’s important for the way we played, not just in attack. The players also have to do defensive work and that is where we are aiming and then the quality comes out.”
