VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Watch Newcastle Goals HERE

Papiss Cissé after scoring his and Newcastle second goal against Chelsea in the Premier League match Newcastle pulled off an outstanding 2-1 victory over Chelsea yesterday, ending Chelsea's 23-match unbeaten run.

In what was their seventh win in nine matches, Newcastle took apart a full-strength Chelsea side.

In the opening half-hour, Chelsea were brilliant in possession, and had threatened on numerous occasions through the myriad of attacking talent they boast. But Alan Pardew’s men withstood that pressure. They survived a torrid opening 30 minutes, when Chelsea looked to be at their formidable best; when Rob Elliot went off at half-time, Newcastle could have easily dropped down a few gears.

However, Jak Alnwick, the 21-year-old debutant performed admirably under pressure and dealt very well with a number of tricky balls.

The central midfield too were a revelation. Cheick Tiote made the headlines for the wrong reasons in the build-up to this game and Moussa Sissoko was just returning from suspension after being sent off in the defeat to West Ham.

While it was clear that both players had a lot to do get back inthe good books of manager, Alan Pardew, there is no doubt that both players made amends. They worked incredibly hard to fend off the efforts of their engine-room centre-pairing, and effectively marshalled the pace of the game.

However, it was the two goals from Papiss Cisse that made the difference at the end of the day. Though neither goals were spectacular, he has shown time and again this season that he has a knack for getting in the right place at the right time.

Here are the highlights. Enjoy!
