Match Preview

Defence depleted for Magpies Newcastle boss Chris Hughton will be without first-choice central defenders Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Chelsea. Both men begin three-match suspensions, the Argentinian following his red card in the 5-1 defeat at Bolton last weekend and his English team-mate after his ban on video evidence for violent conduct against Johan Elmander in the same game. Sol Campbell and Steven Taylor are set to deputise, although neither has started a Premier League game yet this season. Joey Barton completes his own three-match ban, but Cheik Tiote is back after missing the game at the Reebok Stadium having earlier picked up his fifth booking of the campaign. Steve Harper (shoulder) and Leon Best (ankle) are closing in on returns, but Ryan Taylor (ankle ligaments), Dan Gosling (knee) and Hatem Ben Arfa remain on the sidelines. Hughton will have no qualms about throwing Campbell and Taylor in at the deep end. Campbell has made only one start for the club he joined during the summer to date - the Carling Cup victory at Chelsea on September 22 - while local boy Taylor has not played a competitive game since January because of a succession of injuries. However, they are likely to get their chance this weekend and Hughton is confident they will rise to the challenge. He said: "They are both very, very good players. One thing you learn the more years you are in football is you have to adapt. "You end up losing players and you have to adapt to it. "Sometimes that can strengthen you, sometimes it doesn't, but what you have to do is get on with it, be very, very positive about what you do have and the qualities you have, and hopefully that will show on Sunday. "It is not just us, most clubs losing their two central defenders would be stretched - we have seen that, of course, even at the club the magnitude of Chelsea. "What we do have available in that position at the moment is Steven Taylor and Sol Campbell. "Both Steven and Sol have been fit for a while - what they are lacking is getting up to speed as regards matches." John Terry will miss the match against Newcastle but the pain he has suffered from the nerve problem in his leg is subsiding and he should be fit to return next weekend. Frank Lampard, who has suffered a recurring groin problem, has also begun to train with the squad but is not ready for selection. Yuri Zhirkov could also be back in a week's time while Michael Essien is suspended. They will also welcome back Jose Bosingwa against United, who knocked Chelsea out of the Carling Cup earlier this season. "They won here and showed good organisation," said Ancelotti. "They're a good team. "They have fantastic support from their fans. We have to be ready and pay attention. "Chris Hughton (Newcastle manager)is doing a fantastic job. He did a fantastic job last season, winning the Championship. They're strong up front." Ancelotti wants his side to show the same invention and determination they did against Birmingham last week, when they were unlucky to lose 1-0. "We did everything right," said Ancelotti. "The performance was very good and we have to maintain this level of football, this intensity, against Newcastle."

Match Report

Kalou rescues Chelsea Salomon Kalou spared Chelsea's blushes as the champions had to come from behind to claim a point at Newcastle. The Ivory Coast international fired home the equaliser in first-half injury time to prevent his side slipping to a third successive league defeat for the first time in 11 years. Andy Carroll had given the Magpies a sixth-minute lead when he capitalised on an error by Alex, and although the Londoners enjoyed the better of the game, they defended resolutely enough to deserve their point in front of a crowd of 46,469. Chelsea climbed into second place as a result, but have now taken just four points from their last five games. Chris Hughton will have been the happier manager after seeing his reshuffled defence keep the visitors at bay. Last Saturday's 5-1 defeat at Bolton had proved a sobering experience for the Magpies, whose promising start to the season has been dented by a return of just a single point from the last nine on offer. In the circumstances, the prospect of champions Chelsea arriving on Tyneside desperate to avoid another damaging defeat was hardly an appetising one. Add to that the absence of key trio Fabricio Coloccini, Mike Williamson and Joey Barton through suspension, and the omens were not good. But with Sol Campbell making his first league start for the club and Taylor playing a competitive game for the first time since January, Hughton's men got off to the perfect start, albeit with a helping hand from Alex. The Brazilian, whose visit to a wintry Tyneside may have come as something of a culture shock, and keeper Petr Cech, who had already clawed away a second-minute Taylor header, were on entirely different wavelengths as they closed on a seemingly harmless through-ball. But with Carroll hot on his heels, the defender stabbed it past Cech to allow the England striker to tap the ball into an empty net. The Magpies could hardly believe their luck, but as they snapped into tackles with midfielder Cheik Tiote in the thick of it following his return from suspension, they made life distinctly uncomfortable for the visitors. However, Chelsea warmed to their task as the half wore on to dominate possession, and although the home defence were proving stubborn, they gradually started to get on top. Skipper Didier Drogba forced a fine reaction save from Tim Krul at the near post with a blistering 19th-minute drive, and full-back Jose Enrique had to clear an Alex header off the line seven minutes later. As the Blues threw men forward, the Magpies threatened on the break with wide men Jonas Gutierrez and Wayne Routledge, in for injured captain Kevin Nolan, prospering sporadically, although the bulk of the traffic was in the opposite direction. Carlo Ancelotti's men flexed their muscles as the half-time whistle approached, and were convinced they should have had a 43rd-minute penalty for Tiote's clumsy challenge on Ashley Cole as he burst into the area. They got their reward in injury time when Kalou carved his way into the penalty area and fired into the bottom corner with the help of a deflection of Taylor's out-stretched leg. Chelsea returned in determined mood and might have increased their lead with 56 minutes gone when Drogba expertly controlled a long ball and fired in a firm left-foot shot on the turn which Tim Krul got down well to save. But it was the home side who went close six minutes later when Cech failed to deal with a towering cross and only succeeded in serving the ball up to Wayne Routledge on the edge of the box. The winger controlled neatly before blasting a volley towards goal, where Cole was perfectly positioned to head off the line. Chelsea threw everything they had at their hosts as time ran down and Drogba had a 77th-minute strike chalked off for handball, but Kalou could have won it three minutes later when Taylor, Campbell and Krul between them allowed the ball to fall to him beyond the far post, but he fired into the side-netting. Substitute Daniel Sturridge shot wastefully across the face of goal with four minutes remaining as the champions launched a late onslaught, but Newcastle were not about to surrender a hard-earned point.
