Moussa Sissoko had one of his best games for Newcastle ever on Saturday, and the Magpie powerhouse scored two good goals, with the first one after 10 minutes being absolutely magnificent.
Moussa Sissoko – smiling – simply outstanding on Saturday
There’s not too many players can score a goal like Moussa’s when he hit the ball beautifully into the back of the net from Mathieu Debuchy’s cut-back.
And it reminded us of the goals that Yohan used to score, and if Moussa can score more goals this lad is going toi be simply awesome for Newcastle.
This is what the Newcastle manager had to say today about the French International’s performance:
“Moussa was outstanding.” “I think his best performances have been down that side.” “People questioned putting him there at the start of the season, but he’s proved that’s probably his best role.”
Of course Moussa used to play in central midfielder for Toulouse, but he is a threat down the wing, and he works his socks off for Newcastle, just like Yoan Gouffran also did on Saturday.
And Yoan was unlucky not to score, with his shot in the second half being parried by goalkeeper Allan McGregor, that led to Moussa’s second goal and Newcastle’s third.
Moussa was our Man of the Match with 40% of the vote, followed by Vurnon Anita (who looked very useful in central midfield) with 22%, and captain for the day Cheick Tiote on 11% – and Cheick had a solid game helped to control the midfield.
Every player seemed to put in a very good shift on Saturday, in what was a first-class team performance, and that augers well for our next two games – at Fulham in two weeks time, and then at home to Crystal Palace.
