Newcastle United ended Chelsea’s unbeaten run last year after the London club were looking to go the entire season unbeaten, hurting the league leaders and cutting their lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea have gotten one over Newcastle and earned themselves a lead at the top of the table curtsy of two goals from Oscar and Diego Costa. Newcastle dominated the first half but were cut down to size in the 43rd minute as Ivanovic found himself unmarked in the Newcastle box and fed Oscar for the Brazilian to make it 1-0. Chelsea dominated the second half and in the 59th minute, the Blues came up with some clever passing play before Costa got free in the box and finished into the corner to make it 2-0
Chelsea now enjoy a two point lead after Manchester City slipped up at Everton.
