Sarri on Friday insisted it was "impossible" to lose Willian, who has 18 months remaining on his current contract at Stamford Bridge, and he repeated his view on Saturday.

The former Napoli manager responded similarly to talk Willian potential exit in an interview with Sky Sports, claiming: "You know very well that Willian is a very important player".

Sarri was also quizzed on the future of Willian, who has been linked with a January move to Barcelona.

The goal galvanised Newcastle and they ended the half on top, with Chelsea struggling to break them down - and there were even audible boos from the home crowd as Jorginho played the ball straight out of play early in the second period.

This loss in the capital, combined with results elsewhere on Saturday, means that United are now in the relegation zone ahead of next week's huge showdown with fellow strugglers Cardiff City. It was only Willian's fifth goal of a disappointing season and the Brazilian's first in the league since October.
