Despite facing the Mackems in their own back yard - with ten men for more than hour - Newcastle have now lost only one league game on Wearside in 32 years.
Yohan Cabaye: "For me, it was a great start, and for the team as well. I was really happy to score my first goal of the season and my first derby goal.
"It's the best moment since I came to Newcastle.
"It was a great moment and when I saw the fans, they were going crazy so for me, it was a really good start.
"I know how important this match is for the club, for the fans, for the city, for everyone who supports Newcastle.
"I play for Newcastle so for me, the goal is really important. It means everything for everyone, and for me."
