Willian Steals Point For Chelsea

English Premier League

Result:   Newcastle 2-2 Chelsea

Date:      26 September 2015

Venue:   St. James’ Park

A late Chelsea surge secured a 2-2 comeback draw against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Saturday evening.

It was Jose Mourinho’s men who had a better start to the contest, and Loic Remy came close to opening the scoring eleven minutes in, but his shot was only inches wide. The hosts seemed to be sparked to life after that chance, as they created a couple of half-chances before Moussa Sissoko almost grabbed the opener with a 16th minute strike.

Newcastle added numbers into their attacks as they grew in confidence, and Begovic was forced into a wonderful double save in the 27th minute, keeping out Ayoze Perez before doing well to stop Daryl Janmaat in the bottom corner.

The Blues upped the tempo in the final few minutes of the first half and Cesc Fabregas’s 37th minute strike forced a good save out of Tim Krul before Perez sneaked a goal for Newcastle on the stroke of half-time to give them a 1-0 advantage at the break.

Steve McLaren’s charges continued where they left off as they extended their lead in the 59th minute through a Georginio Wijnaldum header following a corner.

Chelsea began to gain some momentum as the match progressed, and substitute Ramires stepped up with the goods in the 78th minute to reduce the deficit to 2-1. The hosts looked a bit shell shocked as Chelsea grew in confidence, and Willian was at the end of a superb period of play for Chelsea to slot the ball in, drawing them level with five minutes to spare.

Three minutes later, Ramires almost grabbed goal but his shot was well saved. The visitors continued to press for the winner but Newcastle held on for the share of the spoils.
