Moussa Sissoko has made a huge difference to the Newcastle in the last couple of games, since he’s been back from that hamstring injury, and we have looked a much better side with Sissoko, Remy and Debuchy back in the starting eleven, but the chances are high that we could lose Remy, and even Debuchy in the summer.
Moussa Sissoko – very powerful player for Newcastle
Mathieu was seen waving (goodbye?) to the Newcastle fans after the game – but that doesn’t necessarily mean he expects to leave the club in the summer, but if PSG do come in with a big offer for him he will be gone.
When you are walking around the pitch with your kids after the game – the natural thing to do is to wave at the crowd – what else would you do?
But PSG may not come in with a big bid in the summer, because the French club will soon be punished by UEFA for not abiding by the Financial Fair Play rules over the last three years.
Moussa looked very good yesterday and he really is like a train, because once he gets up to speed he’s difficult to stop.
And Moussa was unlucky not to score, and hit the post twice in the five minutes following Shola Ameobi’s headed goal after 18 minutes, which Moussa set up brilliantly with an inch-perfect right wing cross.
This 24 year-old 14 times capped French International is already a good player, and he’s played 55 times for Newcastle with 6 goals and 12 assists, and the train will only keep improving at the Tyneside club.
He’s tunred out to be a terrific acquisition by Newcastle, and now he needs to start adding more goals to his game.
