Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye speaks of the importance of beating Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Yohan Cabaye insisted that it was important for Newcastle United to go top of their Europa League group after the victory over Bordeaux on Thursday night.

The French midfielder played a key role in the win but has urged his teammates to quickly turn their attention back to the Premier League.

Cabaye said: "It was very important to get the three points tonight to get the first place in the group.

"Every player played well and we must have a quick turnaround because it's going to be a tough game [against Manchester United] on Sunday."

Newcastle have already faced United once this season, losing 2-1 at Old Trafford in the Capital One Cup.
