Newcastle, Chelsea split points to end wildly different seasons

Champions League-bound Newcastle drew disappointing Chelsea 1-1 at Stamford Bridge to finish the Premier League season in London on Championship Sunday.

Fittingly, the Blues equalizer came via a Newcastle own goal, as Chelsea struggled to produce the final ball all season and out-attempted much-changed Newcastle 22-13 on the day.


The European regulars will not sniff the continent next season and finish the season with just one win since the middle of March. Frank Lampard’s interim stint ends on a four-match winless run, as Chelsea is 1W-7L-4D dating back to March 18.

Anthony Gordon scored for Newcastle in the draw, as the Magpies finish fourth place with 71 points. That’s four points behind Manchester United and four clear of fifth-place Liverpool.
