Alan Pardew: "Papiss is one of those priceless players. At the moment he is red-hot and if we give him the chances I feel pretty confident he will take them.

"Every team needs a goalscorer who can get you a goal and turn a game. Sometimes you might not be dominating a game and then someone like Papiss comes along and gives you a lift.
"We have had to manage his knee and it is an ongoing process.

"From now until the summer we will have to be careful with him. But by the time we get to the summer it will all be over."
