We were pleasantly surprised with a great performance from the lads in the first half this afternoon at Stamford Bridge, as we outplayed Chelsea and were the better side in that first half – even though we went 1-0 down to an Oscar goal just before the break.
Oscar scored after 43 minutes against the run of play
But we couldn’t keep it up in the second half, and Chelsea got a second form Diego Costa just before the hour mark, and comfortably saw out the game to go back to top of the Premier League after Man City could only draw 1-1 at Everton.
With both Burnley and Leicester winning today, Sunderland are just one point above the drop zone, after they were beaten 1-0 at home by Liverpool after Bridcutt managed to get himself a minute or so into the second half.
Newcastle remain on 27 points in 10th place from 21 games played, and are 8 points above the drop zone and 6 points from 6th place.
