Newcastle 2-1 Chelsea. Cisse seals win for the Magpies.


Chelsea's 23-game unbeaten record came to an end at St James' Park as Newcastle beat the West London club 2-1.

Alan Pardew's side broke the deadlock in the 57th minute through Papiss Cissé who came off the bench and tapped-in Sammy Ameobi’s low cross - which Gary Cahill couldn’t block.

Eden Hazard came close to equalising in the 78th minute but his shot hit the Newcastle post.

A few seconds later, Moussa Sissoko set up the Senegalese striker Cissé who then scored another tap-in to increase the deficit as the North-East side sat back and allowed Mourinho's men to chase the game.

Newcastle went down to 10 men after Steven Taylor was sent-off for a second bookable offence.

Veteran striker Didie Drogba pulled on back for the Blues which gave Mourinho a late hope but it wasn’t enough for a comeback.

Despite Castle playing with ten men, they fought really hard to secure the win which they deserved.

It was the second time in a week Mourinho's team controlled the game and couldn’t seal a win, last weekend at Sunderland they play 0-0 at the Stadium of Light and again today they couldn’t break down Newcastle who gave them a tough time.

The win makes it 23 points for the Magpies and the clash today would be the kind that would please the Newcastle fans who were really supportive. Even after they were a man down , the noise increased.
