Cisse: Chelsea strike the best of the lot
Newcastle hitman Papiss Cisse has named his wonder-strike against Chelsea as the best goal of his career to date.
The 26-year-old Senegal international took his tally for the Magpies to 13 in just 12 appearances with a match-winning double at Stamford Bridge, the second of them a truly memorable stoppage-time volley from an outrageous angle.
Cisse told the Shields Gazette: "It was a wonderful goal. It was the best goal of my career - I was so happy to score it. When the ball came to me, I was only thinking about scoring. It was an instinctive finish.
"I was also pleased with my first goal. It was important for the team. It was a good evening for me and the team.
"I came to the Premier League to show my quality, and everything is going well. I'm enjoying my football - everything is good on and off the pitch."
