London: Chelsea were prevented from taking over at the top of the Premier League table on Saturday after being dealt a shock 2-0 defeat at Newcastle United.

Victory would have taken Jose Mourinho's side above leaders Arsenal, who host Liverpool later on Saturday, but instead they fell to second-half goals by Yoan Gouffran and Loic Remy on a rain-soaked afternoon in northeast England.

It was Chelsea's second defeat of the campaign and their second consecutive loss away to Newcastle, while Mourinho has now gone four league games without victory at St James' Park in his two spells as Chelsea coach.
