Newcastle fans know that Papiss Cisse has been in great form so far this season, and he has already doubled the number of Premier League goals he scored in 24 appearances last term.
Papiss Cisse – in tremendous form at the moment
Papiss has four league goals in just three appearances this season, and that’s two more league goals than he scored in all of last term, and some of his goals have been great opportunist goals – and let’s face it – it’s exactly what Newcastle need at the moment – goals out of nothing.
Alan Pardew knows the Senegal man is in scintillating form:
“He scored all sorts of goals that first year.” “I think Papiss is a natural goalscorer and we see that every day in training”
“It would be nice to see him score another absolute worldy of a goal, but it doesn’t matter how they go in.” “There have been times when it’s not been so natural for him.”
“Every striker goes through those periods.” “But this season, he’s injury-free and more enthused than I’ve seen him in a long time.”
“When goalscorers get their tails up, they have an unbelievable knack of finding a goal.” “His first at Swansea, I don’t think anyone else here could have scored that goal.”
“We need to increase the number of chances we create for him.” “But the chances he’s had so far, he’s taken and you can’t ask for any more than that from a striker.”
One thing that worries us about tomorrow’s game is the counter-attacking ability of Leicester City, and they have some very speedy players, and it’s been a weakness of Newcastle’s for at least two seasons – we always seem to have trouble dealing with any fast breaks.
And the game tomorrow is really a do or die game for our players – we just have to get a win, but we can only move up one place in the league table and that would mean that Everton lose at home to Aston Villa if we beat Leicester.
That shows you how poor a position we are in at the moment, after seven games played, and we’ll need a few wins to start moving up the Premier League table.
