Yohan Cabaye has made a dream start for new club Crystal Palace.

Alan Pardew’s major gamble this summer has instantly paid off with the former Newcastle playmaker helping his new club to a 3-1 opening day win at Norwich.

Yohan Cabaye finished the game off himself with the third goal which made sure of the points – watch the goal below.

Earlier today we featured quotes from Yohan Cabaye talking about both his new club and how he still feels about Newcastle United.

Yohan Cabaye:

“They have everything you need but sometimes they did things I cannot understand.

“Maybe it is the owner’s (Ashley) mentality, I don’t know, but it is a shame for me because Newcastle has to be one of the biggest teams in the country. I loved the club.”

Alan Pardew:

“People say they are surprised I came (to Palace), but I was very happy when he (Pardew) called. I want to grow as a player and from talking to the manager and the owner it was exciting – that message is important to me too.

“It helps a lot that I know the manager. He is not different at all to before – he always wants to win. He is a person who is very close to his players and I can talk about everything with him.”
