Why didn't Kante or Hazard shoot at the end there!? Golden opportunity.

Kante not confident with his shooting. Hazard not confident with finishing as the keeper is down blocking path to goal. Messi would have dinked the ball over the keeper and sliding defender.

Need to get the ball moving faster as it is too slow getting it into the final third. Although it is not helped by the ref allowing them to keep kicking Hazard.

A lot of negativity from Jim Beglin and Jon Champion but I actually enjoyed our movement of the ball in that first half. 

Obviously Hazard should have buried that chance at the end of the half, but I would settle for more of the same with a bit more incisiveness and urgency second half and we should be fine IMO.

If Hazard was further forward, he'd be closer to/in the box where they'd be less likely to foul him anyway. Need to play wider and put in crosses to mix things up a bit. Kante playing deeper so now we have no-one running into the box from deep, because in the previous two games he was the one that kept running beyond the forwards.

Newcastle have been very well schooled but it will be very hard to sustain their system when a bit of fatigue sets in.Our keeper looks a bit worrying - he came out and flapped at one and he should have came out claimed the ball when they got a cross in when the ball looked like going over the line for a goal kick.

Nice to see the opposition parking the bus against us. Looks like a 95% possession to us this 2nd half. Need to make it count starting with Morata.

Should have taken those chances in the 1st half. While I admire our approach play Newcastle have battened down the hatches, gonna be a tough last 30.
