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.

Willian later scored on a free kick to split the spoils.
