Chelsea edged past Newcastle United in an entertaining game that saw the home side denied by the woodwork on a number of occasions and Tim Krul save a Frank Lampard spot-kick. A 3-0 scoreline not really representative of a match that was fairly level before late goals from Salomon Kalou and Daniel Sturridge.
