crystal palace and 2—0. too much for the eagle and fortunately, that is how it finished. and last minute this. as you say, that is the third final for chelsea and pressure mounting, it was a bit of a strange season of the pitch but i'll have to do now is the simple task overcoming liverpool for the quadruple to get that much needed silverware. in a much—needed owner. that much needed silverware. in a much-needed owner.— that much needed silverware. in a much-needed owner. chelsea meet this match. much-needed owner. chelsea meet this match- they _ much-needed owner. chelsea meet this match- they are — much-needed owner. chelsea meet this match. they are trailing _ much-needed owner. chelsea meet this match. they are trailing in _ much-needed owner. chelsea meet this match. they are trailing in the - match. they are trailing in the premier league and there will be no silverware that and out of europe, this is one of the last chances for some of the season.— some of the season. they're not auoin to some of the season. they're not going to win _ some of the season. they're not going to win the _ some of the season. they're not going to win the premier -

leicester took the lead at st james' park from a corner in the 19th minute — ademola lookman scored his eighth goal of the season. but newcastle also from a corner equalised, it wans�*t pretty though — bruno guimares' shot was initially stopped by kasper schmeichel, but the brazilian kicked the ball between the goalkeeper�*s legs and across the line — the goal was eventually given after var had a look at it. the game was heading for a draw. until guimares struck again with a flying header, in the fifth minute of injury time. he's an incredible person and an incredible footballer and so, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have him with us and we'll be grows and develops and her team and certainly excited and the levels that you met. and quickly and the supporters of certainly taking to
