Sloppy, greasy, blustery conditions do not make for an excellent game usually and it hasn't exactly been scintillating entertainment here either.
On a few occasions, we've created half-chances - mostly through Eden Hazard - but a telling final ball has yet to make an appearance. We have hit the bar once - John Terry from Mata's corner - and Newcastle have had to clear off the line once as well - John Terry from Lampard's corner.
So goalless it is after 45. Time to turn it up a bit for the next 45 then.
