A brilliant first half finish by Yohan Cabaye was arguable beaten by his last gasp clincher that made sure of the points at Upton Park today.

Newcastle dominated the first half but it was only a piece of magic that Yohan Cabaye brought to the show, which belatedly put United in front.

Of course things rarely work out so smoothly for Newcastle and sure enough we gifted them a soft goal on the stroke of half-time.

A second half charge followed but it was hardly sophisticated as Fat Sam’s boys pumped the ball up front hoping for a break.

The last word though was left to the one truly quality player on the pitch.

A free-kick won on the edge of the area towards the left hand corner of the box, Cabaye curling the ball over the wall and in off the post – impossible for the keeper to save.

Watch the goal again and again.
