Peter Crouch had an early chance to put the visitors ahead, but his volley went straight to Rob Elliot in the Newcastle goal.
The hosts soon started to dominate possession, with Moussa Sissoko picking up the ball in midfield and attempting a strike from 25 yards out, but his effort was well high of the crossbar.
Newcastle continued to push, with Yohan Cabaye also having an effort from distance, but his 22-yard shot just crept wide.
Asmir Begovic had to make a save when Davide Santon fired in a dangerous cross for the Magpies, but the home side could not force a goal before the half-time whistle.
