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".
The result leaves Chelsea just a point behind third place Tottenham, who have a game in hand, while Newcastle will end the weekend in the relegation zone.
"My future? It's here at Chelsea", he said.
The 30-year-old showed his value to Chelsea by scoring his side's victor against Newcastle to give Blues a six-point cushion over fifth-placed Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification. "In my opinion, Willian has to stay with us because for us he is really a very important player, like Pedro". I need a player there so it depends on the club's decision. [Hudson-Odoi] is becoming for us a really important player.
"[On Saturday] we scored after nine minutes, so the team thought it is very easy".
The Clarets were behind to Andre Schurrle's superb second-minute strike, but went ahead through two own-goals in the space of three minutes, with Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi finding their own net.
"With Eden playing as a striker we need wingers".
According to the Mirror, Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang will look to test the Blues' resolve to keep Willian at the club, and could rival the interest of Barcelona, who had a £50m bid turned down earlier in the week.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was brought off the bench for the final 10 minutes of the match in place of Pedro, having been left out of the starting lineup in one of three changes, but the Bayern Munich target could not help to kill off the match. "For us, he's fundamental".
"We need to improve in the mental reaction". So we need Pedro. It was only Willian's fifth goal of a disappointing season and the Brazilian's first in the league since October. We scored after nine minutes, so we did not have to face difficulty. "We have to get the points we want". "For now, it's enough".
