Article image: Newcastle boss Bruce: Abraham Chelsea goal killed us off

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce was left frustrated with the timing of Chelsea's second goal in their 2-0 defeat on Saturday.

Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham struck the goals for the visitors.

Bruce later said, "I just thought our best spell in the game was when we conceded the second.

"They had possession and had a big chance after that. We had one or two opportunities but didn't take them

"Maybe in the first half we were a little too deep at times.

"They're a very, very good side and like I said, when you go high up the pitch they can really hurt you

"There will always be grumbles. We had some important players missing. But Chelsea are a very good team.

"Second half there were one or two details. We had three good opportunities, and against the big teams, you've got to take them."
