Moussa Sissoko paid off a sizeable part of his transfer fee with a superb double to hand Newcastle a precious 3-2 victory over European champions Chelsea.

The France midfielder marked his home debut with a 68th-minute strike to level the game at 2-2 and then blasted home a brilliant winner to further boost Alan Pardew's survival mission.

Chelsea looked to be on their way to a first victory in four attempts in all competitions when, after Frank Lampard had cancelled out Jonas Gutierrez's first-half opener, Juan Mata curled home a superb 61st-minute effort. But a rejuvenated Newcastle refused to accept defeat and Sissoko snatched a dramatic win.
