Best stats from Toon victory
This weekend's fantastic match at St. James’ Park was noteworthy for a number of reasons – and not just in the immediate context of our current Premier League season.

Le Fondre has scored one goal for every 119.8 minutes of Premier League football this season – a better goals/minutes ratio than Michu, Luis Suarez, Theo Walcott and Wayne Rooney.
