Papiss Cisse has been great for us this season, and it’s hard to know where we would be in the Premier League if it wasn’t for his 11 league goals in only 18 appearances.
Papiss Cisse – after scoring on Saturday
There’s only 24% of Newcastle fans in our poll who think we can win this game, although Manchester United have been up and down in their form on the road this season, and they have 16 points from their 13 road games.
Newcastle will have a chance to pick up something from the game, but only if the defense plays well and keeps things tight at the back, like we did on Saturday in the 1-0 win against Aston Villa.
This is what Papiss Cisse has said today about tomorrow night’s game:
“It’s a big game, but it won’t be easy. “We had to get ready quickly to be fresh from the Aston Villa game – the matches are coming quickly.”
“All the players are happy to be playing in this game.” “It is Manchester United – it’s a great fixture to be involved in and we are all looking forward to it.”
It would be good if we picked up some points tomorrow night, and we are now 5 points short of what would be safety and 40 points.
With 11 games left in the season we should be safe enough, especially if we can get a draw or even another famous win tomorrow night.
This is also a great chance for John Carver to show the powers that be at Newcastle (Mike Ashley and Lee Carver) that he has the ability to beat a top coach in Louis van Gaal, and a top side in Manchester United – one of the most famous and successful clubs in world football.
