Moussa Sissoko had a great game last Saturday, and the 6’2″ powerhouse of a player got two very good goals, and was simply awesome in the game at Hull City.

Alan Pardew has Moussa playing on the right wing for Newcastle, where he can make those strong runs, and the French International also tracks back well on defense.
And the 14 times capped French International always puts in a good shift for Newcastle, and he’s the only player to start every single league game for the club this season.
This is what Moussa has said today in the local press:
“I am very happy because I scored two goals.” “The team won the game so we are all very happy.” “We work hard together.” “We are playing very well and the game was very good.”
“The most important thing is we won.” “We have more confidence and we need to work hard again for the last 10 games.” “I will need to try to play very well and after that I need to help my team, to work very hard.”
“Then maybe I can go to the World Cup.”
France face Switzerland, Honduras and Ecuador in the World Cup. and it’s certainly an easier group than England, who have Italy, Ukraine and Costa Rica.
We’d be surprised if England can get through their group – but you never know of course with England.
Moussa played in central midfield when he was at Toulouse, but Pardew has mainly used him as a wide man, and he can always play central midfield when required, either attacking or defending.
When Yohan left we had thought that maybe the manager would switch Sissoko into Yohan’s position, but Vurnon Anita has come in and is doing very well.
The Dutch International also had a good game last Saturday, and scored his very first league goal in the last minute at Hull City.
Newcastle are in a decent position after two wins in a row, and now we need to keep winning games – but that’s always easier said than done in the Premier League – but Moussa certainly seems upbeat about things.
