One of the things we said after last week’s 2-1 win against Norwich City, is that Moussa Sissoko can still improve his game at Newcastle, and one area of improvement was in scoring goals – and he missed a very good chance in the first half last week.
Moussa Sissoko unleashing sensation strike for winning goal
Moussa showed us all he can indeed become an even better player at Newcastle, when he scored the sensational winner for Newcastle just four minutes after West Brom had equalized in that second half yesterday against a good West Brom side.
Sissoko has always been a modest lad and completely committed to Newcastle, since he arrived in the last week of January from Toulouse, where he had been a long term target of Newcastle.
This is what Moussa said after the game:
“I have been waiting a while for it. Now I am off the mark and I will continue to work hard, mostly to make sure I can keep putting in some great performances on the pitch.”
“Goals, when they come along, are always welcome, or the odd assist, if I can get them in as well.” “But the most important thing is the win. It doesn’t matter who scores.”
“As a team, we win together, we lose together. “If we score a goal, it’s always a goal together. “We all have the same objectives we are working towards.”
“The league position is fantastic, so it is up there as one of the greatest goals I have ever scored, probably, in my career, and I am really happy to have scored it.”
“As I have always said in the past though, it doesn’t matter how you score, the most important thing is to score and take away the three points.”
“That’s what we managed to do on Saturday, so we are happy. We will enjoy it, but we will go away and rest up. “We have got a difficult match away at Swansea on Wednesday.”
“But we will go there full of confidence and hopefully come away with three points.”
Newcastle are now 6th in the league after today’s games, and we are above Manchester United and Tottenham on points, and we are one point out of third place.
Newcastle face Swansea away on Wednesday night at the Liberty Stadium, and it’s a chance to get five league wins on the trot, and go even higher up in that league table.
