Breaking News ! Newcastle United's defeat to Chelsea has raised questions over the side's mentality as the manner of the defeat rather than the result grabs the headlines. The Magpies were fortunate only to lose the game by two goals - a Federico Fernandez own-goal and a strike from Tammy Abraham - as Chelsea played them off the turf at St James' Park. Speaking to The Everything is Black and White Podcast, our chief sports writer Lee Ryder who was at the game, believes that there might be a mentality issue which is impacting on performances.

"You know, you can criticise the players but at the end of the day if they've gone out there and been told to defend and just park the bus, then you can't really expect too much more from it." Newcastle managed just one shot on target, and yet again had Karl Darlow to thank for the score remaining a respectable one. However, when Newcastle did break forward, Chelsea looked vulnerable, but even had the Magpies pulled one back - which they nearly did through Sean Longstaff who hit the bar - Ryder believes they still would have lost. "To be honest, even if Newcastle do get back in that game, I think Chelsea can go through the gears and crank things up.

. "I think it's a mentality thing, and it's a big problem. "Honestly, it feels that at the minute you don't know where they're going to go from here because if they lose a Crystal Palace, then big questions are going to be asked." In-front of an empty stadium, there was no reaction but Ryder - who asked Steve Bruce in the post-game press conference whether fans would have been justified in booing their side off - believes they would have done. "I've actually stated in my match report that they would probably have been booed off at halftime and certainly booed off at full-time because it's the manner of the performance. "When fans come to St James' Park it is because they want to see the team have a go, not sit back, not defend and get people behind the ball. "It's not good to watch and I think they would have certainly been booed off today but I'm sure social media will be having that see as we speak."
