Timo Werner shrugged off his international embarrassment and inspired Chelsea to extend their scintillating recent form with a 2-0 win over Newcastle at St James' Park.
Four days after featuring in Germany's humiliating 6-0 Nations League defeat to Spain, the £48million man shone against Steve Bruce's Premier League strugglers as Chelsea made it five straight wins in all competitions.
A 10th-minute own goal by Federico Fernandez helped the visitors on their way before Werner's brilliant solo charge in the 68th minute cued up the simplest of opportunities for Tammy Abraham to effectively seal victory.
Sean Longstaff's stunning 30-yard drive which rattled the woodwork proved the only real positive for the home side who simply struggled to match Frank Lampard's confident side for much of the afternoon.
