Obafemi Martins says he and Michael Owen are proving they can play together for Newcastle.

After victory over Tottenham on Monday, the Nigeria striker said: "People have said two small strikers cannot play together but of course we can.

"I think Michael and me can play together because we are both good players.

"It's the same with Mark Viduka or Shola Ameobi, I think I can play with all of them.

"I have 22 goals in 50 games. I don't set myself targets of say 20 or 30 goals a season, I just try to score as many as I can.

"They say a mark of a world-class striker is a goal every other game and I'm quite close to that at Newcastle."
