LONDON (AP) -- Papiss Cisse scored twice Wednesday to lead Newcastle to a 2-0 Premier League win at Chelsea that keeps alive the Magpies' hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

Cisse put Newcastle ahead in the 19th and made the result safe in the 90th.

It was Newcastle's first league win at Stamford Bridge since 1986 and moved the Magpies four points clear of the Blues, who now look likely to need victory in next month's Champions League final to secure a place in next season's competition.

Elsewhere, Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice Wednesday to put Tottenham ahead in the race for fourth place in the Premier League with a 4-1 win at Bolton.

Luka Modric put Spurs ahead in the first half with a spectacular half volley and, although Nigel Reo-Coker equalized in the 51st, Tottenham retaliated with three goals in 10 minutes.

Rafael van der Vaart restored the lead in the 60th and Adebayor made it 3-1 two minutes later before completing the scoring with a far-post finish from Aaron Lennon's cross.

It was Tottenham's second Premier League win at Bolton and its first since 1996.

Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba greeted fans and watched the game from the stands, less than seven weeks after his on-field cardiac arrest against Spurs.
