On a day that saw a full slate of entertaining matches across the Premiership, Newcastle's defeat of Chelsea proved no different. With controversial calls, brilliant goals, and a late game winner for the Magpies, lots is to be said about this match. On to the links:

The Telegraph has a match report. It's sort of written from a Chelsea angle, but if you'd like to see how the other half (of the table) lives, there you go.

For a more Mag-centered take, the Chronicle has their write-up on a fun day at SJP.

Alan Pardew is "ecstatic" with Sissoko, meaning Pardew has more in common with your typical Coming Home Newcastle member than originally thought.

ESPN's Marc Duffy loves him some Sissoko as well.

We Ain't Got No History says Chelsea "Chelsea themselves". I skimmed the article, but I don't think they mentioned how close Newcastle came to Newcastleing themselves.

Fabricio Coloccini kicked Demba Ba in the face and Chelsea's boss was none to pleased about it.

The Telegraph has a bit more on the incident.

Ba's face was broken in the incident.

Joe Dixon at The Mag gives his take on a debate we had in the Game Thread. To boo or not to boo? Also included in the column is Ba's message to fans after the match.

Did you miss silly season? No? Too bad! The Chronicle says Newcastle will target a striker this summer.

Also, Andy Carroll scored a goal yesterday and is on Newcastle's radar.

Sunderland lost. Do you need any other results? Here you go.

The big news for Newcastle is that, as of right now, they are 6 points clear of the drop zone.
