Newcastle's French legion too much for out-of-sorts Chelsea

Jose Mourinho hadn't won a league match at St. James' Park entering today and after today he still hasn't claimed the elusive victory.
Yoan Gouffran and Loic Remy scored as NEWCASTLE UNITED beat CHELSEA, 2-0, in a PREMIER LEAGUE match I watched on television this morning.
The Toon gained strength in the second half while an out-of-sorts Chelsea seemed to wilt in the pelting rain.
The visitors missed an opportunity to go top of the table -- at least briefly top -- and never seemed likely to brush the Geordies aside.
Well, I suppose you can call the Newcastle side "Geordies," despite the fact the starting 11 featured six Frenchmen and one of the three subs was from France as well.
The Gauls proved the difference, too, at least in providing the goal scorers.
