Willock: Newcastle deserved our win against Chelsea

Joe Willock was delighted with Newcastle’s 1-0 win against Chelsea.

The midfielder proved the matchwinner on the day.

He later said, “We know what we needed to do. The manager put in a good game plan and we deserved to win. In the first half we dominated and the last pass wasn’t quite there. We got the goal and the clean sheet.

“I have been practising shooting in training to be fair. I have been missing scoring in front of these fans so to get a goal today is brilliant for me and the team.

“These games bring up high emotions. Both teams want to win and these things happen [at the end].”
