This could also have been a final game in charge for Newcastle manager, Rafa Benitez, with the Spaniard's future in doubt pending key talks with the club's owner, Mike Ashley, in the next week.

The Spaniard, whose side beat Chelsea 3-0 at home on the final day of the campaign, oversaw a 10th-place league finish.

"Newcastle showed great desire, a great will to fight, a great will to take three points and to finish this season in the best possible way".

"Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him".

"But we have six days to change our approach, our desire, our will to fight".

"Finally, I would like to thank the fans for their unrivalled support of Rafa and the team throughout the season".

The Blues were dominated in the first half by the hosts, with Dwight Gayle putting them to the sword inside the first 25 minutes, however, the visitors could have been behind earlier in the game if it were not for Courtois' saves.

"I repeat, Newcastle out-played us and they deserved to win".

Benitez said: "The way that he has been behaving and playing during the season, especially at the end of the season, I think he is a different kind of midfielder so I am sure he will be in consideration".

"On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory".
