Pardew expects Ba to leave Newcastle
- From the section Football
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says Demba Ba's departure from the club is all but certain, with the striker expected to join Chelsea.
Ba was missing for Newcastle's match at home to Everton in the Premier League, but the Magpies took an early lead through Papiss Cisse.
A spectacular free-kick from Leighton Baines drew Everton level, before substitute Victor Anichebe gave the visitors a 2-1 win.
