Newcastle killed Chelsea’s hopes of booking a Champions League spot as they defeated the Blues 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Striker Dwight Gayle fired the home side ahead on 23 minutes, before two second-half goals from Ayoze Perez wrapped up the convincing victory.

Tiemoue Bakayoko had yet another poor game, and former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp who was in the Sky Sports studio had a go at the France international.

He told Sky Sports: “I didn’t see him sprint once.

“He didn’t even break sweat. Newcastle wanted it more.

“I felt sorry for [N’Golo] Kante, he had no support whatsoever. Everything about that performance was so poor.

“When the fans have travelled all that way, to see a performance like that is poor.”
