McClaren praises Newcastle 'courage'
- From the section Football
Manager Steve McClaren says his Newcastle side showed "the courage to play football", after they were held to a 2-2 draw at home against Chelsea.
Ayoze Perez gave Newcastle a first-half lead, before Georginio Wijnaldum made it 2-0 on the hour. But Ramires reduced the deficit with a fierce 25-yard strike and Willian equalised when his free-kick from the left sailed straight in.
Newcastle United have won three and drawn one of their last four Premier League home games against Chelsea.
