Ranger wants Chelsea repeat

Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger is hoping for a repeat of the 'best feeling in football' when he returns to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Sunday.

The Magpies travel to west London for this weekend's Barclays Premier League encounter, looking to emulate their Carling Cup success over the Blues back in September.

The memorable 4-3 victory is the highlight of London-born Ranger's short career so far, as the 20-year-old capped an impressive performance with a goal for Newcastle on relative 'home' turf.

"Going down there to London, where I had family and friends watching, and scoring against Chelsea, who are a big club, was fantastic," he said.

"That was the best feeling in football for me."


Alan Pardew's Toon Army visit Carlo Ancelotti's side off the back of a win against Birmingham City last weekend, and will hope to end the season on a high with positive results from their two remaining fixtures.

Chelsea's title aspirations are all but over, as Manchester United, who play Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday require only a solitary point to confirm their names on this year's trophy.

However, if United lose, then Chelsea will need three points to maintain the pressure and keep their faint hopes of retaining the title alive.

But Newcastle will not simply roll over, and are preparing to make a game of it.

"To get a result there this time we have to go there, even though we're safe, and go all out," Ranger continued.

"They might need this win, because if Man United lose two games then anything can happen for them. But if we play like we did last time, anything can happen for us."
