Breaking News ! Newcastle United's Academy head of coaching Ben Dawson was present in the technical area for the Magpies' clash with Chelsea. Steve Bruce was joined by Dawson and Stephen Clemence on the sidelines with Steve Agnew not spotted by fans. Dawson, of course, was the man who took caretaker charge of United during their tour of China in 2019 when he was in the dugout for a 4-0 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers and a 1-0 win over West Ham United in the Premier League's Asia Trophy. It is understood that Dawson took a clutch of training sessions last week at Benton with coach Steve Harper on international duty with Northern Ireland. For Dawson it is another line to add on to his coaching CV after working his way through the club's Academy coaching ladder, managing the Under-23s and now working closely with the first-team. Sadly, it did not result in a change of fortunes on the field first-team players did not need any adjustment period to a different voice last week after working with Dawson last pre-season. Hakim Ziyech of Chelsea holds off a challenge from Ciaran Clark of Newcastle United during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Chelsea Newcastle's alarming home form Steve Bruce's side have now lost five from their seven matches at St James' Park and it is beginning to become a worrying trend. Although, Bruce suggested after the game that Newcastle's form is down to the run of fixtures they've had recently. From those seven games, which stretch back to last term too, the Magpies have faced Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and champions Liverpool. Bruce said after the game: "I make no excuses but we've played three of the top six in the last few weeks."

. Yes, Joelinton held the ball up well, and played a couple of decent through balls into the final third. But Newcastle were badly missing Callum Wilson and Joelinton could have played until midnight and still not found a way past Edouard Mendy. He had just one touch in the opponent's box overall. His long-range effort even resulted in a cheeky dig from Paddy Power who tweeted: "Joelinton, who has scored two goals in 45 league games for Newcastle, just tried to lob Edouard Mendy from 40 yards. "Even if you're not watching, I think you all know how that turned out." Frank Lampard during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Chelsea at St. James Park on November 21, 2020 Frank Lampard held up in virtual Press conference but it can't wipe the smile off his face Technical problems meant that United's virtual Press conference after the game was delayed at St James' Park. With Lampard in position, the live feed was simply showing the ex-England man giggling as he scrolled through his mobile phone. After so many congratulatory texts and a quick scan of the league table, with Chelsea briefly rising to the top, it's easy to see why. Steve Bruce's Press conference was a different affair entirely with questions on poor form and fan unrest the order of the day.
