Newcastle stun Chelsea

02 November 2013 05:16

Yoan Gouffran and Loic Remy dented Chelsea's Barclays Premier League title charge as Newcastle erased the memories of their derby defeat at Sunderland with a morale-boosting victory.

Gouffran's 68th-minute diving header and Remy's late strike, his sixth goal of the season, settled a game which blossomed from modest beginnings into an end-to-end encounter.

Indeed, had it not been for goalkeeper Petr Cech, who had earlier made second-half saves from Moussa Sissoko and Gouffran, the Magpies might have gleaned more reward than the 2-0 win with which they emerged from a testing afternoon.
