Alan Pardew felt the injury to Yoan Gouffran had an influence on the outcome of the game on Saturday.

Pardew today told of his relief after Yoan Gouffran escaped a broken leg at White Hart Lane.

Alan Pardew: “I thought it was difficult – him not finishing the game caused us a problem.

“Gouffran’s injury was a big blow – I thought it changed the game a little bit.

“We had less threat when he was off the pitch. He’s been a real highlight the last three games.”

“But, having said that, it’s not as serious as it could be. He’s got a gash. He looked less sore in the changing room, the doc said. We sent him for an X-ray.”
