Watch Quality Obertan winner – Video special
Sometimes it is as though the script is already written – a game so low on quality and up pops the forgotten man, Gabriel Obertan, to score a real quality goal that wasn’t in keeping with everything else around it.
We can look forward to Alan Pardew waxing lyrical tonight.
How he never lost faith in him (despite not even taking him to New Zealand pre-season), been exceptional in training etc etc
For now though, just enjoy a win and the out of nowhere quality goal that delivered those three points.
Watch the goal below, with thanks to ‘6 Second Savage’.
