Gouffran’s non-stop display as part of Alan Pardew’s 4-3-2-1 formation against Chelsea helped net three points and keep up his 100% winning start.
Speaking about the fans, Gouffran told the Evening Chronicle: “I’ve not seen anything like this – never, not at all.
“At the Villa game it was like a different ball game for me.
“To have those supporters behind us was unbelievable. But to see a full St James’ Park and have those fans behind us was just magnificent.
“It was beyond belief.”
