The Blues defeated Newcastle United by 3-2 in the EPL

Mykhailo Mudryk scored Chelsea's winning goal over Newcastle in a fierce duel on Monday(11th March 2024). The Blues secured victory with a narrow score of 3-2, Chelsea hosted Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in the 2023/2024 Premier League match. This match was predicted to be tough, but Newcastle was not an easy opponent and this time Chelsea's three goals were scored by Nicolas Jackson (6'), Cole Palmer (57'), and Mykhailo Mudryk (76'). Meanwhile, The Magpies responded through Alexander Isak (43') and Jacob Murphy (90'). Mudryk's goal was an important goal that sealed the victory. Apart from that, the goal process was fantastic, namely a solo action past the line of opposing defenders, past the goalkeeper, and then sending the ball into an empty net.

The 23-year-old Ukrainian winger did not play as a starter in this match and he only entered in the 71st minute, replacing Raheem Sterling. About 25 minutes on the field, Mudryk answered the coach, Mauricio Pochettino's confidence. Indeed, the 2023/2024 season will not be very friendly for Mudryk, he has been repeatedly criticized for his poor performance and minimal contribution to the team.

"It was a very good goal, Mudryk scored a very good goal and that's what we expect from a substitute, to have an impact," said Pochettino. "He has to compete with other players who are in the same position, only then will he be fit to play. This is a question for him about Mudryk being fit to play rather than for me," the 52-year-old head coach said.
