The home team took the lead just before the break, as Jonas Gutierrez headed home a superb cross from full-back Davide Santon.
The visitors equalised on 55 minutes. Ashley Cole found Frank Lampard whose swerving effort from 25 yards to beat Tim Krul. Six minutes later and Chelsea were ahead. Spanish maestro Juan Mata curled home a superb effort into the far corner of the net.
Newcastle drew level on 68 minutes. Moussa Sissoko fired home, after Petr Cech had parried a Yoan Gouffran effort away from goal. Sissoko doubled his goal tally for his new club in injury-time, striking a sublime effort from the edge of the area.
Elsewhere, Everton came back from two goals down to draw 3-3 with strugglers Aston Villa at Goodison Park. The visitors took just two minutes to go ahead in this encounter, striker Christian Benteke firing past Tim Howard in the Everton goal.
The home side were on level terms on 21 minutes. Striker Victor Anichebe was too strong for defender Ciaran Clark and fired a low shot past Brad Guzan. Villa took the lead three minutes later though, Gabriel Agbonlahor heading home from Matthew Lowton’s cross.
Villa extended their lead on 61 minutes, Benteke heading home from another Matthew Lowton centre. The home side got back into the game on 69 minutes, as Marouane Fellaini fired low past Brad Guzan.
Everton pushed forward looking for an equaliser and it was that man Fellaini again, who headed home in injury-time. The draw means that Villa remain in the relegation zone, while Everton moved level with fourth place Tottenham.
