The Blues dominated proceedings against Steve Bruce’s side and could have scored more goals but for their prolifigacy in front of goal.
They temporarily sat on top of the table before Tottenham Hotspur usurp them after a 2-0 home win against Manchester City.

“The Premier League is tough, relentless, and we dealt with the challenge of the game very well.”
Next weekend Chelsea host Tottenham in what will be a significant test.
