One thing you need to know about Papiss Cisse is that he’s really great guy and so humble, and after the game today, where he scored another two league goals to take his tally to four so far this season, he thanked his team mates for working so hard today.
Papiss Cisse scoring first goal today – how did he do that?
Newcastle were lucky to come away with a point today, let’s be honest, but when the lads worked so hard like they did today, and you have a striker in form like Papiss Cisse is at the moment, we were always in with a chance – and we got a good point today.
This is what the Senegal man said after the game:
“The manager needs me and the team needs me but I will keep going and work hard.” “I want my team to work hard and believe.” “I know it’s not easy but keep going.”
“I like playing here but today was very, very hard.¨ “Swansea kept the ball but my team had to run and run.¨ “I scored two but Gabby and Sammy gave me good crosses.¨
“I just said well done to both. We worked hard.”
Newcastle started off playing in a 4-3-3 formation, but then after Riviere came on with 20 minutes to go and Newcastle losing 2-1, we went into a 4–4-2 formation and looked a lot better and went at Swansea and Janmaat had a decent shot near the end that could have gone in with a little bit of luck.
Both Gabriel Obertan and Sammy Ameobi did well to get those right wing crosses over for the two goals, and when Cisse is in the side they know if they get that cross in, there’s always a chance the Senegal man can put the ball into the back of the net.
Papiss is a very important player for Newcastle United at the moment, there’s not doubt about that, and he got us another point today – much like he did against Hull City.
