Yohan Cabaye feels that Newcastle did well to secure a draw at Anfield this Sunday.

Cabaye struck the Magpies’ one goal of the match before half-time, his second so far this season, which made him Newcastle’s first goal scorer at Anfield in almost eight years.

However, Luis Suarez’s impressive goal gave Liverpool a draw, and Newcastle were not helped by the dismissal of captain Fabricio Coloccini following a lunge on Suarez.

Nevertheless, Cabaye feels that it was good the Magpies at least got a point from the game.

He said to Newcastle’s official website: “It was a good point from a very hard and difficult away game. In the first ten minutes they put us under a lot of pressure but we stayed solid and they didn’t have a really good chance to score. It was really important that we didn’t concede early on because it meant we stayed in the game. After 20-25 minutes we kept the ball better, played in their half and had a few chances before my goal. Going in 1-0 at half-time but the goal we conceded in the second half we could have done much better with. However, a point here is a good point.”

Cabaye also talked of how he felt happy at scoring, but would have felt happier if he had won the game for the Magpies.

He said: “Last season I touched the ball and Agger scored an own goal, so maybe I like this stadium. But I am always happy when we score, wherever we play, and I want to keep scoring to help the team get better and keep winning. I have scored away at Sunderland and Liverpool away this season, and now I want to score at St James’ Park. I saw the ball go in and was happy but I would have been more happy if the goal gave us three points.”

Newcastle are now in tenth position in the Premier League table with 14 points.
