Gary Neville and Andrew Cole take to Twitter after Chelsea draw 2-2 with Newcastle
Chelsea came from behind to salvage a point at St James’s Park after a 2-2 draw with Newcastle United on Saturday evening.
Ayoze Perez put the Magpies in front with an improvised finish before Georginio Wijnaldum extended the home side’s lead with a header.
However, Ramires halved the deficit with a long-range finish in the 79th minute, before Willian’s free-kick crept past Tim Krul to secure a point for the visitors.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to the 2-2 draw at St James’s Park.
