Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is wary of former club Southampton's strike-force today.

Pardew warned against the three-man strike-force he nurtured while in charge of the Saints.

"My front three in League One were Adam Lallana, Jason Puncheon and Rickie Lambert - and it's still the same.

"So I know them inside out. They are three terrific players and it's no surprise to me they're in the Premier League.

"They're all match-winners, so we have a tough job to keep those three down."
