Chelsea's chances of finishing in the top four took a major hit on Wednesday as Papiss Cisse scored a goal in each half to help Newcastle to a 2-0 win over the Blues at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea entered the match riding a six-game unbeaten streak but went behind in the opening 20 minutes when Cisse netted his 12th goal of the season with a nice shot on the turn.

The former Freiburg man then doubled his tally late in the match to seal the win as he scored on a spectacular 30-yard effort that left goalkeeper Petr Cech with no chance and continues Newcastle's bid for a place in the top four.

The Magpies have won seven of their last eight games to sit level on 65 points with Tottenham for fourth place.

Tottenham 4, Bolton 1

Bolton, England - Tottenham won for the second time in as many games to maintain fourth place as Spurs got two second-half goals from Emmanuel Adebayor to post a 4-1 win at Bolton on Wednesday.

Luka Modric struck the lone goal of the first half for Harry Redknapp's side before Nigel Reo-Coker's equalizer early in the second half.

But Tottenham restored its lead on the hour mark through Rafael Van der Vaart before Adebayor netted two goals in the span of seven minutes to make sure all three points went back to London.

The win boosts Tottenham's Champions League hopes as the club stays in front of Newcastle on goal difference while also moving to within one point of third-place Arsenal.

Bolton remains in the bottom three on goal difference with two games to play.
