Chelsea wing-backs James and Chilwell the unlikely heroes driving Tuchel's title tilt

The Blues may be missing some of their most recognisable goalscorers right now but lethal finishing is coming from unexpected sources

Chelsea were frustrated for 64 minutes of Saturday's Premier League clash with Newcastle by their hosts' low block.

But then Reece James opened the scoring with a left-footed volley. Just 13 minutes later, the England international put the game to bed with an opportunistic, but well-executed, first-time shot to make it 2-0.

Tellingly, no Chelsea player has been involved in more goals this season than James, who couldn't have picked a better time to step up to the mark, given his side's injury crisis in attack.
