Keegan issues Chelsea warning

Kevin Keegan has warned Chelsea they will have to be at their best if they are to leave St James´ Park with their Barclays Premier League title hopes intact.

The Newcastle boss is relishing the chance to pitch his improving side into battle with the Champions League finalists on Monday knowing they could have a major say in the destiny of this season´s championship.

Keegan said: "There is no doubt about it, Chelsea will expect to come to Newcastle and get something - that´s why they are at the top of the league. But expecting it and getting it... there is a game of 90-odd minutes in between that needs playing."
