The Sun.

The 27-year-old striker has returned to scoring form since the departure of Demba Ba to Premier League rivals Chelsea and scored a fabulous 25-yard volley which was compared to Shearer’s goal at Everton 10 years ago.

Cisse loved being compared to the Toon legend but believes he is different. He also reminisced about the stunning goal he scored against Chelsea last season adding that it is still his favourite.

“The Chelsea goal is at the top of my list. But this one is up there too,” the striker said.

“It was a very difficult goal for me to score. A few people could score a  goal  like this — but Chelsea was very difficult to do.

“For my goal against Southampton I saw the ball come over Jonas Gutierrez and  I went to play for the second ball. After the ball came to me, in my head I just thought ‘shoot’. I knew it was a goal. It was a nice feeling, I’m happy. But it is not magic.

“I have seen Alan Shearer’s goal against Everton on TV. It does not come into my mind. Alan Shearer is the big man. I’m not Alan — I try sometimes but Alan is the big man”

“I have never met him. But all of the time I see him on TV he talks well about me when I play good.”
