VIDEO: Ramires starts Chelsea’s comeback with a bang
Chelsea didn’t look ready to gain points on Saturday, trailing lowly Newcastle United 2-0 at St. James Park on NBCSN.
But Jose Mourinho made a pair of “inspired” subs, as Ramires and then Willian lifted the Blues into the draw column in a 2-2 final.

The first goal, from Ramires, was worth the price of admission. The midfielder picked up the ball outside the 18, and absolutely belted the ball past a flying Tim Krul.
Willian later scored on a free kick to split the spoils.
