Alan Pardew: "I don't normally do it, but I showed him a big chance we had in the first half.
"It was when he should have passed back to (Sylvain) Marveaux for a tap in to underline the composure we needed in the second half.
"His reaction was very negative. He was so upset with himself, and I actually questioned whether it was the right thing to do.
"But then he goes and does what he did at the end of the game that no other player in our group would do.
"Maybe (Fulham striker Dimitar) Berbatov was the only player on the pitch who would have done what he did, so fair play to him."
