Chelsea too good for Toon

Published Add your comment

Didier Drogba's third goal of the season put Chelsea on the road to a 3-0 victory in an eventful 90 minutes at Newcastle.

The Ivory Coast international headed home Juan Mata's 38th-minute cross to leave substitute Salomon Kalou and Daniel Sturridge to wrap up the win with late strikes.

Tim Krul had to pull off a string of fine saves to keep the home side in it until the final few minutes, but Chelsea did not have things all their one way with Newcastle hitting the woodwork three times.
