Alan Pardew refused to take credit for his side's opening goal from Yoan Gouffran, with the assist provided by Yohan Cabaye after he had a lengthy chat with his manager prior to the delivery.

Alan Pardew: "I just asked him to hit it on the back of their back four with shape and a bit of pace because we weren't really getting any joy from balls going into their box.

"He executed it on the money and I am not going to try to take any credit for that. You have to be a top, top player to hit that ball in, and Gouff connected brilliantly and gave us a platform then."
