Papiss Cisse scored a stunning goal in Newcastle’s 4-2 home victory over Southampton on Sunday.

However, he was more pleased with a victory which took the club to 30 points and eased them six clear of the relegation zone.

Cisse said: "I just want to get points, win each match and get as many points as we can to get out of a difficult situation.

"My objective is to get points. Whoever scores, whether it be me, whether it be someone else, all we want is for the team to get points and to move up the league.

"Yesterday the manager told everyone, 'If you win tomorrow, you have 30 points and it's very good for the team'. All the players had that in their minds."
