Newcastle 2 0 Chelsea

Newcastle United:

Tim Krul

Hardly threatened by the Chelsea attack, the Dutchman only had to make one save all game.

Mathieu Debuchy

Guilty of giving the ball away too often with 54 per cent passing accuracy, although he made a sensational block to deny Eto’o.

Mike Williamson

Made eight clearances as Nawcastle were pinned in their own half after taking the lead.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa

Composed on the ball with a 90 pass accuracy rate, but the Frenchman struggled to make his presence felt with no tackles or headers won.

Davide Santon

Fared better than his fellow full-back, but still failed to make a single tackle.

Moussa Sissoko

One of Newcastle’s more lively performers, he completed 94 per cent of his passes.

Cheick Tiote

An all-action display from the Ivorian saw him complete 95 per cent of his passes before being forced off the pitch due to injury.

Newcastle 2   0 Chelsea

Yohan Cabaye

Struggled at times but a delicious free-kick was tucked away for the winner.

Yoan Gouffran

A superb diving header gave the Magpies the lead, but the forward was relatively quiet otherwise.

Shola Ameobi

It was a risky gamble that didn’t pay off as the striker toiled without much success.

Loic Remy

Secured all three points with a superb finish, but he also retained the ball well with a 88 per cent pass accuracy.

Newcastle 2   0 Chelsea

Subs:

Vurnon Anita

A sensational assist for the second, he may well have convinced Alan Pardew of his first-team credentials.

Papiss Cisse

Won three of his four headed duels when he came on, but did little else.

Gabriel Obertan

Had little time to impress.

Chelsea

Petr Cech

Made two saves but couldn’t do anything about either goal.

Branislav Ivanovic

Got forward well and supported the attack, but just one of his six crosses reached their target.

David Luiz

His reintroduction to the side went smoothly as he won all three of his headed duels, but was nowhere for Remy’s strike.

John Terry

Utterly dominant in the air as he won six of seven headers and was unlucky to hit the bar in the first half.

Newcastle 2   0 Chelsea

Ashley Cole

Had a rather anonymous performance and did little to help out his fellow defenders.

Ramires

Quietly went about his business with a 80 per cent pass completion rate, but struggled in the latter stages.

Frank Lampard

Struggling for form, he could only manage a 72 per cent pass completion rate and his set-pieces were off today.

Eden Hazard

Always looked dangerous with six successful take ons.

Newcastle 2   0 Chelsea

Oscar

An impressive first-half, but his performance quickly declined after the break with a 77 per cent pass completion rate.

Juan Mata

Not his best performance, as only one of his five crosses reached a blue shirt.

Fernando Torres

Made just three of his eight passes in a very subdued display.

Subs:

Willian

Got involved with the game, completing 83 per cent of 29 passes.

Samuel Eto’o

Wasteful in front of goal as he missed all four of his chances.

Andre Schurrle

Threw himself into the play but could do little to turn it around.
