Newcastle United No2 John Carver feels it's unfair to compare Everton youngster Ross Barkley with Geordie legend Paul Gascoigne.
Barkley scored an amazing individual goal in Everton's 3-0 win last night.
Carver is well-placed to assess the comparison Barkley and Gascoigne having been on the playing staff at St James' as the precocious Geordie emerged from the ranks.
He said: "I think that's a lot of pressure to put on the lad, but I think he's a class act.
"I'm sure their manager will nurture him in the right way and he's got good people around him.
"He's got a bright future - we've just got to be careful that we don't build him up too soon.
"He's a Ross Barkley, not a Paul Gascoigne, but as long as they manage him right and we as a country manage him right, I think he's got a bright future."
