Salomon Kalou spared champions Chelsea the ignominy of a third successive defeat for the first time in 11 years with a first-half equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Newcastle.

The Ivory Coast international struck in injury-time to cancel out Andy Carroll's sixth-minute opener, his ninth goal of the season.

Chelsea had the better of the chances and Kalou fired wastefully into the side-netting 10 minutes from time, but the Magpies managed to hang on for a creditable point.
