Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew likened Papiss Cisse's screamer in victory over Southampton to Alan Shearer at his best.

Cisse netted Newcastle's second with a dipping 25-yard volley. And boss Pardew compared it to Toon legend Shearer's belter against Everton in December 2002.

He said: "It was a wonder goal, an Alan Shearer-type moment from Cisse.

"That will certainly get in his top 10. It reminded me of that goal from Alan many years ago here, that dipping volley.

"As soon as he hit it you sensed that it was in. And for sure, the net ripples. He's got that in him, he can get all types of goals. But that was a really great one today."
