Unhappy Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce insisted his side were robbed of a point at Chelsea by a blatantly incorrect offside decision by assistant referee Mike Cairns.

Cairns failed to raise his flag as Salomon Kalou tucked home an 87th-minute winner from six yards. Chelsea had taken the lead in the first half through Michael Essien but Nicky Butt scrambled an equaliser in the 55th minute.

Allardyce said: "It is one of those decisions I wouldn´t mind getting myself into trouble with to be honest." He added: "But unfortunately that would cost me money and I don´t want to part with my money when I don´t deserve to be parted with it.
