Alan Shearer: "He is a very different player to what Michael brings.

"But what the opposition fear with Oba is they are not sure what he is going to do because at times, he probably doesn't know himself.

"You can take that as a negative or a positive, but he is a threat.

"He is good in the air, he can score great goals and we are going to need that every bit as much from him as we are Michael, as we are Shola, as we are Andy Carroll.

"We are going to need all those players firing on all cylinders.

"We are going to have to start creating some chances because otherwise, there is no point in having Michael, no point in having Oba or the two big lads in Shola and Andy - and hopefully, Mark Viduka - and the young lad, Nile Ranger.

"We have got to start giving them a bit of ammo."
