Newcastle 2 Chelsea 0 – Full Match Report


Here is our full match report of the game today – as it happened – and after Newcastle hung on in the first half, they came out and attacked Chelsea in the second half to win the game 2-0 – our best league win of the season by far.

Alan Pardew – after Newcastle’s second goal

The St. James Park pitch looked in great condition when the game got underway this afternoon – compliments to the groundsmen.

Newcastle were holding their own in the early stages although Chelsea were having a lot of the possession and after 13 minutes John Terry hit the cross-bar from a header from a Mata corner, and then an overhead kick by a Chelsea player also hit the cross-bar, as Newcastle survived.

And for the first 20 minutes Chelsea were in control of this game but Newcastle were playing some tidy football.

After 30 minutes a decent shot by Yohan Cabaye was saved well by Petr Check.

On 35 minutes Debuchy got well-earned applause when he brilliantly cut out a high cross and got the ball up field to a Newcastle player.

And then on 39 minutes. from a Frank Lampard corner, John terry again went close as the ball was kicked off the line by a Newcastle player.

Moussa Sissoko then hit a very good shot that goalkeeper Cech saved well but then after a bit of a stupid tackle, Sissoko received a yellow card.

Half time came and it was 0-0, with Newcastle coming more into the game, and the team had played solidly, but Chelsea had most of the play and all the chances.

After 53 minutes Vurnon Anita came on for Cheick Tiote, which seemed an odd move, and Cheick didn’t appear injured, but of course we had extra time on Wednesday so Pardew will need to keep an eye out for players flagging.

On 61 minutes Remy had a decent short from 30 yards which was wide, and Newcastle were coming more into this game.

Shola Ameobi was replaced by Papiss Cisse and the local lad got a good round of applause from the fans as he had put in a very good shift for the side.

And then after 65 minutes Gouffran was through one the left and the Frenchman put in an excellent shot that was well saved by Petr Cech diving to his right and putting the ball around the post for a corner.

Newcastle were coming a lot more into this game, with Anita prominent, and they started to hustle the Chelsea players into mistakes, and the Magpies were slowly starting to go after this game, with the Geordie crowd sensing something.

And then after 68 minutes Newcastle went ahead with a very good goal, as a brilliantly  flighted free kick from Yohan Cabaye into the box was headed home by Yoan Gouffran in great style as he dived to head the ball,  for his third goal of the season – and the crowd just erupted.

Wonder if France manager Didier Deschamps will see that goal?

And then after 72 minutes a snap attack by Newcastle saw Remy and Sissoko combine really brilliantly, and Remy’s shot was well blocked by John Terry – that would have been some goal and Remy was coming alive in this game.

Chelsea threw all they had at Newcastle after the goal, but the lads held on and showed guts and fight, and the back four were doing well, with Williamson and Yanga-Mbiwa both having good games, and Debuchy looking great at right back.

But Newcastle were still dangerous on the break.

On 80 minutes Chelsea had a great chance as Willian hit  a great shot which Krul, who was unsighted somehow managed to block, and then Willian’s follow-up was deflected by Debuchy for a corner – another great play by the France right back.

Chelsea were giving it everything they had as they poured forward to try to get the equalizer.

After 84 minutes Gabby Obertan came on for Yoan Gouffran who got a wonderful round applause from the very appreciative Newcastle fans.

On 86 minutes Hazard had a great chance to equalize from  just 14 yards out, but he dragged his shot wide – that was  bad miss by the former Lille player.

And then after 89 minutes Newcastle caught Chelsea as Obertan and Anita passed the ball around outside the box on the left, and suddenly Anita cut into the box and squared the ball to Loic Remy who hit the ball first time into the net off a post, with his left foot.

Great play bu Anita and Remy dispatched it into the ball into the back of the net beautifully.

And that was it as the referee blew the whistle after a full 5 minutes of added time.

It was a simply breathtaking performance from Newcastle in the second half and we deserved all 3 points today, and it’s something we needed – a win against a top side to lift the spirits of our fans around the world.

You could even say that Pardew out-coached Mourinho in that second half as Newcastle came right back at Chelsea.

Bottom line – just a sensational win for Newcastle.

Newcastle United (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy, Mike Williamson, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Davide Santon; Moussa Sissoko, Cheick Tiote (c), Yohan Cabaye, Yoan Gouffran; Shola Ameobi, Loic Remy

    I wonder if Ashley would actually want to see a result like the one today.

    could he become worried that we could get into Europe meaning he needs more players

    Another plus is no one can whine about winning from only wonder goals. It was a world class free kick by Cabaye and brilliant play by Anita and Remy.

    true..it’s something i have been critical of, not enough chances in the box.

    We created two good ones today and our forwards we good enough to take them, long my it continue.

    MA is Chelsea fan as well, so he put one over on his team, as AP says Mike?!? is a fan as well, well he is until he goes then its back to the bridge for Mike, or hanging off the tyne bridge were a lot would like to see him, I think we all know he will most probs end up at Rangers, but that Premiership money will be like tearing a whole in his deep deep pockets wont it!!!!

    Just good to be a toon fan today, we like to savour the ups because we get dealt such a crappy hand most of the time, wa food wa drink and wa craic will all be a bit better tonight.

    Well this inconsistancy lark is wearing very thin 🙂

    Let debuchy be a lesson for everyone who writes off players after a few bad performances. He’s been brilliant the last four games. Class shines through

    Transfer sage, just getting back to you, asking what the atmosphere was like.
    In the first half it was pretty quiet as I think everybody was chewing their finger nails.
    Once we got on top in the second half ,it was top notch , and when Remy scored the second the roof in the Gallowgate end came off.
    Pure Belter !

    Goofy should be upfront to use his pace and this allows Anita to get on the field at left or right mid.
    when HBA comes on as sub it should be on the right side of midfield where he easily turns the left back or LM.
    brilliant second half…worth geting up at 5.30am

    It’s funny you never hold your hands up all the times we’ve played s…e under Pardew but the odd time we get it together spectacularly well like today I immediately put my hands up and say well done Pardew.

    You trawl all the way back to a post written this morning I believe but don’t acknowledge my comments after the match at all. Funny that. And you say I have hatred issues! Any way not even you can bring me down tonight.

    no rotunda you said after the game “did that really just happen” and as i said earlier a manager can have different tactics and players for different games thats very normal but you slag off all week and as soon as the team sheet comes out you slag off again so you as a supporter only praises when the game has finished wats the point!!?seriously?
    i support and is hopeful before EVERY game and if we play utter shit i will say but the truth is we haven’t really untill that 1st half at everton and ofcourse that man city game
    but your hatred of pardew seriously is effecting your enjoyment of supporting us and to me that is a shame but hey ho i’m very happy tonight where as you are confused! not my problem fella!

    Naughty naughty Jamsha. And don’t think that just because you’re in India you’re safe from the long arms of Northumbria Police. They have friends all over the world.

    You know any embassies that would grant you some protection?

    TorqToonMaybe Julian Assange or Edward Snowden might be able to advise you?

    Jamsha – People have been done, for doing or writing much less, mate.

    If you get lucky this time, just be more careful and thoughtful next time. Football is one thing, threats to murder, however empty and unrealistic, is something completely different.
