Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba for whatever reason, never really combined well when both of them were at Newcastle,  but with Ba now gone off to Chelsea,  and Alan Pardew and the Board having brought in Moussa Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran, amongst others month – Cisse now has players who can work with him up front – and Newcastle have some great attacking options and Cisse is scoring great goals again – as witnessed by his fantastic strike on Sunday afternoon.
