We'll have full-time highlights for you shortly...
NEWCASTLE 3-0 CHELSEA
FT: That's that! Chelsea were utterly woeful, but full credit to Newcastle, who finish 10th in the Premier League having been promoted last summer.
The home fans have been singing Rafa Benitez's name for most of the game, but will he stay next term?
Chelsea will have to get used to the Europa League next season, with or without their Italian boss.
90+1: Two minutes added on here.
90: Oh dear, Pedro. He skies it high into the stands from 20 yards out.
Chelsea preparing for the old Thursday-Sunday combo next season. Will they have Conte in charge?
88: Mo Diame puts in another fine shift. St James' Park rises as he is replaced by Haidara.
86: Just to add salt to the wound, Chelsea fans. Liverpool are now 4-0 up on Brighton.
84: Bakayoko has a go from just inside the box, it's blocked well by Lascelles and falls to Moses on the right of the box, but he was offside.
81: Willian paces forward and has Morata in acres to his left, but his touch is heavy and Dummett comes in to dispossess. Easy.
78: I wouldn't at all be surprised if Newcastle grab a fourth here. They're knocking the ball about with supreme confidence.
76: Another sub. Morata and Willian come on for Giroud and Barkley.
73: Second Newcastle change. Ritchie is off, replaced by Isaac Hayden for the final 20 minutes or so.
71: CHANCE! Moses sticks it across the face of goal, Giroud is at the far post at an acute angle, and he slams it into the ground and over the bar!
69: Nothing going right for Chelsea. Barkley rolls himself along the face of the box, feeds Moses, but he can't get a shot off as Lascelles outmuslces him superbly.
66: Newcastle fans singing Rafa Benitez's name, and it's nearly bringing the roof off. They absolutely love him here.
WATCH: DUBRAVKA SAVE
Here's how Dubravka kept the score at 2-0 a few moments before the third goal.
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 3-0 CHELSEA (Perez, 63)
Oh my. This is so, so poor from Chelsea, but Newcastle are absolutely flying.
Shelvey curls in a deep free-kick, Lejeune is unmarked at the backpost and squares it left-footed, and Perez is under the crossbar to convert!
NEWCASTLE 2-0 CHELSEA
63: SAVE! How has Ross Barkley not scored? Hazard squares from the right, Barkley wriggles free and just has Dubravka to beat, but his left-footed effort is straight at the goalkeeper!
61: More danger for Newcastle. Joselu crosses superbly to the back post, Perez piles in, but Christensen does well to clear.
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 2-0 CHELSEA (Perez, 59)
Chelsea had been making inroads, but Newcastle go up the other end and double the lead!
Bakayoko's clearance in the box is poor, and only as far as Shelvey. He hits it superbly, it's bound for the bottom left corner, but Perez is there to swoop it home in the crowd in the box! Courtois no chance.
St James' Park rocking!
NEWCASTLE 1-0 CHELSEA
56: Chelsea looking a tad more dangerous. Barkley wriggles free on the right of the box, but his square ball is blocked by Dubravka in the Toon goal.
54: SAVE! First effort on goal for Chelsea, and it's nearly the equaliser!
Hazard crosses from the right, Giroud improvises brilliantly to flick the ball with the outside of his boot, looping goalwards, but Dubravka does superbly to tip it away!
52: Shoot, please, shoot! Hazard has a few opportunities to register Chelsea's first attempt on goal, but he runs the ball out of play instead!
49: SUB: Not for Lascelles, but for Dwight Gayle.
It seems he had an issue at half time and was looking to run it off. No such luck, and Joselu comes on.
47: OUCH! Hazard turns and crosses from the left, and it's blocked by Lascelles, in an area you most probably don't want to be blocking a football.
He's down, in agony, but he'll be fine.
46: Back under way in the second half at St James' Park.
HT: That's the half. Newcastle have made most of the running, and Chelsea have been woeful. Dwight Gayle's header separates the sides, but in truth it could have been more.
Highlights to come...
45+2: CLOSE! Nearly a second for Newcastle. Perez latches onto a square ball on the edge of the box, he hooks it for the bottom corner, but it's just wide of the far post!
45+2: Two added minutes at St James' Park.
44: Corner to Chelsea, but it sums up Chelsea's first half. Cleared easily by Lascelles, and still no shot on goal.
LIVERPOOL DOUBLE LEAD
42: More bad news for Chelsea. That should be that, in the race for the top four...
Dejan Lovren has Liverpool 2-0 up on Brighton at Anfield. The Champions League spot is theirs, barring a disaster.
40: "This is as bad as I've seen Chelsea play for a while," says Alan Smith on the gantry on Sky Sports.
Hard to disagree with that...
37: Ritchie takes, it's cleared well by Cahill, lofted back in, and Azpilicueta is caught the wrong side of Perez.
He grapples with Perez, but the Spaniard doesn't go down! That could have easily been a penalty if he had!
35: PENALTY APPEAL! Perez shoots inside the box with no backlift, it hits Christensen's hand, but a penalty would have been very harsh. Corner...
33: Chelsea are really struggling to get anywhere near the Newcastle defensive third. Shelvey and Diame pulling the strings for the hosts.
31: If Newcastle hold onto this, they will finish 10th. Remember, they could finish as low as 15th come 5pm today, with around £10m at stake in prize money.
28: Newcastle have had NINE attempts to Chelsea's none. Conte's side lethargic and second-best here, all over the pitch.
MORE BAD NEWS FOR CHELSEA
Liverpool are ahead against Brighton as that man Mo Salah grabs his 32nd goal of the PL season!
That means Liverpool move up to third, five ahead of Chelsea.
25: CHANCE! It should be 2-0! Shelvey waltzes through two Chelsea challenges outside the box, has it on his left foot, 12 yards out, but flashes it just high and wide!
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 1-0 CHELSEA (Gayle, 23)
That's 1-0, and you can't say Newcastle don't deserve this.
Ritchie crosses well from a central position, and Murphy gets on the end of it just ahead of Courtois. Suspicion of offside, but no flag.
Murphy looks to finish, it loops up into the air and Courtois tips it off the line, but Gayle is on hand from a few yards out to head home!
NEWCASTLE 0-0 CHELSEA
23: WIDE! Close again for Newcastle. Diame wins the ball off Kante 40 yards out, takes a few steps and shoots left-footed, but it fizzes just wide of Courtois' right-hand post!
21: CLOSE! Good reactions from Courtois, as Kante nearly scores an own goal. Shelvey slides in Perez, who spreads for Ritchie, and his cut back is poked goalwards inadvertently by Kante.
Courtois sticks out a hand, and then eventually gets rid of the ball.
19: Azpilicueta looks to slip in Hazard inside the box, but that's over-hit too. Chelsea not finding their rhythm as yet.
16: Nice passing play by Newcastle, but Ritchie ruins it with a long diagonal for Murphy which is well over-hit. Goal kick.
14: Chelsea second best so far, but looking to get on the ball now and calm down a tad. Newcastle penned back in their half, ready to pounce.
WATCH: SHELVEY GOES CLOSE
What an effort...
12: SAVE! Another long-range effort, and another decent save by Courtois. Diame finds a few yards on the edge, fizzes one for the near post, and Courtois saves well for a corner.
That's dealt with well, eventually, and Chelsea can attempt to breathe easy.
10: SAVE! Oh my, what a goal this would have been. Dwight Gayle chests it down to the midfielder, 25 yards out on the half volley, and he absolutely rockets one for the top corner.
It swerves in towards Courtois, and he beats it away well!
8: Superb interception by Lejeune, with his outstretched leg, to stop Kante's lovely through ball reaching Barkley.
6: Emerson is alive to the Ritchie threat on the right, and uses Courtois to help him out inside the box.
Chelsea break again, but once more Newcastle get numbers back quickly.
