In our Man of the Match poll Ben Arfa took an early lead after playing well and setting up the sensational winner for Papiss Cisse, but Papiss has come on strong this morning, and there’s now only 2% between the two players, with the industrious and hard-working Vurnon Anita in third place.
Papiss Cisse after scoring winner yesterday
Ben Arfa made a big difference after he came on after 59 minutes yesterday for the ineffective Luuk de Jong, and Papiss Cisse had at least four good chances and he did well putting most of them on goal.
But he missed a sitter a couple of minutes before he scored, and had earlier headed over the bar following a good cross from Ben Arfa after the Frenchman had beaten three Palace defenders.
But Papiss never gave up hope, and once again got a dramatic winner very late in a game at St. James’ Park – which he’s done a number of times before.
Usually by this time we can declare a winner but not this time – and there’s still time to vote if you haven’t already done so.
