Newcastle were very good,” admitted Scolari.

“They played for a draw and got one. They didn’t come here to play for a win – just a draw.

“They were better than us because they were only thinking about a draw and got one, while we were thinking about a win and didn’t.

“Newcastle did not have one shot on goal in 90 minutes. We had 70% of the possession but we didn’t score a goal.

“If we had scored, maybe we would have scored three or four but we lost two points.

“Sometimes it is more easy to win away than at Stamford Bridge. When you are away, the home fans pressure their team to attack us, but you are at home, they don’t want to attack us.

“We had two or three chances to score and we didn’t – this is football.”

Joe Kinnear was given a further month in charge by owner Mike Ashley and said the draw ‘felt like a win’.

Kinnear will now be in charge until the end of December and if the club is not sold before then, he will be trying to strengthen the squad in the January transfer window.

A delighted Kinnear said: “Scolari congratulated me which was very kind of him.

“I make no apology for playing for a draw. In the last three days we’ve been planning to force Chelsea to play in front of us, which I thought we did very well.

“Although Chelsea had more possession than ourselves, they didn’t create a clear-cut chance really. Everything was long shots and Shay Given pulled off a world-class save.

“It is probably the best team performance we’ve had away from home this year. Even though we drew 2-2 at Everton, I would say this is the best performance.
