Yoan Gouffran was thrilled to score in Newcastle United's victory over Chelsea.

Gouffran sparked delirious celebrations among the home fans when he dived to head compatriot Yohan Cabaye's delicious free-kick past the helpless Petr Cech.

The former Bordeaux player said: "It was magnificent. The fans made one hell of a noise.

"I really just wanted to go and slide. I hurt my knees a little bit and got some grass burns, but it was really nice and a wonderful feeling."
