September 23 14:24 2010 Print This Article

We visit Stamford Bridge with everyone expecting us to get thrashed by the current Premierships leader, but we simply answer all those predictions with a good win.

The game itself starting as everyone wishes when Patrick Van Aanholt opened the scoring in six minutes on the clock but Nile Ranger, pay his terrible mistake who lead to Chelsea’s first goal, slide the ball home on 27 minutes.

Newcastle was far the better team after Ranger’s goal, and give some serious pressure on the Chelsea backline. Bruma foul on Shola Ameobi give us an opportunity to strike from an inviting angle at the edge of the area.

Toon set-piece expert Ryan Taylor, swing the ball into the far corner to put Newcastle ahead on 32 minutes. We almost make it 3-1 before half-time when Ameobi, who continuosly causing problems for Bruma, had a shot on goal, but Van Aanholt hook away off the line to save the London team.

We finally 3-1 up in just three minutes after the break and it was Shola Ameobi who gives the travelling Toon Army a reason to roar. Lovenkrands almost make it 4-1 and closed the contest if he not dragged his shot wide.

The London side has two goals from Nicolas Anelka including an 87th minute penalty to make them back level. But Jonas Gutierrez corner proven to be the match winning assist as the ball met by the head of Ameobi to notched his second and send Newcastle through.
