Chelsea loses 2-1 at Newcastle for 1st defeat

06 December 2014, 19:37

Newcastle, England — Premier League leader Chelsea slipped to its first defeat of the season by losing 2-1 at Newcastle on Saturday, with substitute Papiss Cisse scoring both of the home side's goals in the second half.

Cisse scored in the 57th and 79th minutes before Newcastle had defender Steven Taylor sent off in the 81st for a second yellow card.

Substitute Didier Drogba reduced the deficit two minutes later by heading in Cesc Fabregas' free kick but relentless pressure from Chelsea failed to deliver an equalizer at St. James' Park.

The loss ended Chelsea's 23-match unbeaten run stretching back to April. Jose Mourinho's team hadn't lost in 21 games this season.

Second-place Manchester City could reduce the gap to Chelsea to three points by beating Everton later Saturday.
