Chelsea spoil Shearer's debut

Alan Shearer's managerial debut was ruined by Chelsea as they handed the Magpies a 2-0 defeat and a further slip into relegation debacle.

Lampard and Malouda scored in the second half to keep Chelsea in contention for the title.The loss leaves Newcastle just three points away from relegation with seven games to go.

Newcastle were highly spirited.The crowd was highly spirited and charged up.The on field performance again failed to bring the desired outcome for Geordies.

Owen however thought he had pulled one back in the 73rd minute after few deflections saw the ball cross the line only to be cleared by Ashley Cole(as confirmed by TV replays) but wasn't given by the referee or the linesman.

Lampard scored the first in the 55th minute after Anelka's clipped shot hit the bar and rebounding to Lampard who headed into an empty net.

Second arrived soon for the Blues.Anelka flicked on Cech's clearance which fell to Lampard who slid in for Malouda who calmly slotted the ball in the back of the net with his left foot.

Chelsea are 3rd while Newcastle are 3rd from bottom after the result.
