Yoan Gouffran: Celebrates his goal against West Brom

The Frenchman scored Newcastle's only goal in Saturday's 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion but afterwards his thoughts were still very much on the defeat to Sunderland at St James' Park the week before.

Gouffran said: "Even though I am, obviously, not from Newcastle, I still understood the importance of the derby. It's an historic fixture.

"The fact Sunderland have started picking up points doesn't really affect us.

"It would be great to finish above them. We don't really pay much attention to them but it would be sweet for the fans."

Newcastle's next game is on Saturday against Liverpool where they will be looking to build on the point they earned at The Hawthorns at the weekend.

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
