West Ham boss Allardyce: My most satisfying win
Allardyce was delighted to take three points away from his old club.
"I think this was my most satisfying win," he told whufc.com. "I thought the win at QPR was a good performance but we have to look at where QPR are. They are struggling and we've taken advantage of that. Newcastle were a fantastic force at home last season and have started the season well with some good performances.
"It was a fantastic professional performance by all the players and a fantastic three points. Winning a Premier League game away from home is a tough ask so to beat Newcastle at Newcastle is obviously very pleasing.
"It was a fantastic result and a clean sheet - you couldn't ask for any more."
