Chelsea 0-2 Newcastle: Papiss-ful Easy Feeling As Cisse Shoots Downs Blues (Photos & Highlights)

By Chris Wright

Papiss Cisse maintained his mercurial form with another couplet of slinky goals at Stamford Bridge last night, taking his running total to 13 goals in 12 games as his brace saw Newcastle beat a knackered-looking Chelsea side 2-0 on their own patch.

Cisse put Newcastle 1-0 up on 19 minutes, teeing up David Santon’s rolled pass for himself and swashing a volley past Petr Cech and into the top corner. The Senegalese then upped the stakes with a thunderous second in the fourth minute of injury time, sending an angled, listing, swooping walloper over Cech from 25-yards. It was one of those goals that you just have to see.

The result keeps Toon pushing for the Champions League in fifth with just two games left to play, level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham (with a vastly inferior goal difference) and four points ahead of Chelsea in sixth.

    Was at The Bridge last night. Most impressed with the Toon. Players, manager and fans were all a credit.I hope they don’t get 4th as it would be a dissapointment if we win in Germany and they lose out.
    Very tired blue legs out there last night. 2 games for us now.

    LOL! Djribil is getting the plaudits for Papiss’ goal on Facebook. Go add your comments here:

    I’ve expressed my amazement at his goal already. Great stuff.

    That second goal…….mind fuck

    I think you should be using the word ‘explosive’ where you have put ‘mercurial’.


    We expect you to lose in Germany

    Prefer the first goal – much more skill involved. The way he hit the second, there was no way he was aiming for top-right – that much spin was clearly unintended; a la Ronaldinho 2002 World Cup vs England.

  7. Giancarlo says:

    The first goal was fantastic – the second goal was sheer luck going for that but awesome that it went in.
