Thibaut Courtois has urged his Chelsea team-mates to put their first defeat of the season behind them after their 23-game unbeaten run was ended by Newcastle. The Premier League leaders suffered a 2-1 defeat at St James’ Park after Papiss Cisse scored a second-half double for Alan Pardew’s side. Jose Mourinho’s side must now dust themselves down and prepare for Wednesday night’s clash with Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League followed by Hull’s visit on Saturday. Goalkeeper Courtois told Chelsea TV: "That's the most important, that we are still leaders and from the next game on, we will fight to keep that bonus up and make the gap bigger. "There are only difficult games in the Premier League and we know that. The next game is in the Champions League at home and then against Hull, we have to win in front of our fans." Cisse scored four minutes after climbing off the bench and added his second just over 20 minutes later before Didier Drogba pulled one back after Steven Taylor had been dismissed ...
EPL- Newcastle break Chelsea's unbeaten streak: Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season ended in a dramatic 2-1 loss at Newcastle United on Saturday when Papiss Cisse struck twice to stun the Premier League leaders at St James' Park. Arsenal's hopes of a third successive victory were dashed in a 3-2 defeat at Stoke City where they trailed 3-0 at halftime and Liverpool were held to a 0-0 home draw by Sunderland. Undefeated in 23 matches in all competitions since April's Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid, Chelsea proved far from invincible as 10-man Newcastle survived a late barrage to prevent the visitors setting a record unbeaten run. Few could deny Newcastle a deserved win that lifted them to seventh in the table, although Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said his side had been unlucky to lose. The hosts lost goalkeeper Rob Elliot to injury at halftime, replaced by young rookie debutant Jak Alnwick, and had to man the barricades with only 10 men when Steven Taylor was dismissed after gettin ...
Newcastle United ended Chelsea's 23-match unbeaten run as Papiss Cisse scored two second-half goals in a tense 2-1 win over the Premier League leaders on Saturday.
Ravel Morrison will be touted about to Premier League strugglers in January by West Ham, once his loan spell at Sky Bet Championship club Cardiff ends. Liverpool edged a step closer to landing Martin Odegaard after the 15-year-old Norwegian starlet trained with the Anfield side. Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says big clubs are certain to be watching his star midfielder Moussa Sissoko. Alan Irvine has held talks with West Brom chief Jeremy Peace, but is not expecting the sack even if 16th-placed Albion suffer a fifth defeat in a row when they visit to fellow strugglers Hull on Saturday. Nigel Pearson is set to remain in charge of Leicester this weekend despite his astonishing blast at the club's fans. Manchester United have reassessed their targets for the season after winning four game in a row under Louis Van Gaal. Utd's players are starting to believe a tilt at the title is now possible.

Newcastle United VS Stoke City (29/09/2014) TEAM NEWS Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is fit again after recovering from illness that kept him out of the Capital One Cup win at Crystal Palace. Midfielder Mehdi Abeid is suspended after being sent off in that match. Stoke midfielder Jonathan Walters will have a late fitness test on a calf problem that has sidelined him for the last two weeks. Stephen Ireland is set to return to league action after making his injury comeback in the League Cup in midweek. MATCH PREVIEW: It says a lot about the Premier League these days that the main talking point ahead of this game is centred upon comments uttered outside a London pub. Mike Ashley's representatives insist that Newcastle's owner was speaking with tongue firmly in cheek when he told a newspaper reporter that Alan Pardew had one game left to save his job: "If we lose against Stoke on Monday night he's gone. I've had enough." Rest assured - regardless of what club you are at - any manager rooted to the bottom of . ...
PREMIER LUEGUE TEAM OF THE WEEK Frank Lampard came back to haunt old club Chelsea with a late goal to earn champions Manchester City a 1-1 draw with the Premier League leaders. However, Sunday's big match had its thunder stolen by Leicester City, who achieved a stunning 5-3 comeback victory against Manchester United. West Ham inflicted a third defeat of the season on Liverpool, Southampton moved up to second with victory at Swansea, Arsenal beat a virus-affected Aston Villa 3-0 and Crystal Palace won their first game of the season at Everton. Elsewhere, Papiss Cisse rescued a point for beleaguered Newcastle boss Alan Pardew against Hull, QPR came back twice to draw with Stoke and Burnley and Sunderland could not find a goal between them. Take a look at my team of the week and see if you agree with my choices.

Arsenal stun Villa 3-0 Arsenal stopped Aston Villa going top of the Premier League with a 3-0 win on Saturday. Villa had conceded just one league goal in their previous four league matches but all that changed as Arsenal fired in three inside four minutes at Villa Park. The much-criticisedMesut Ozil put the Gunners in front in the 32nd minute and former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck scored his first Arsenal goal two minutes later before Villa’s Aly Cissokho turned the ball into his own net. Meanwhile Newcastle moved off the bottom of the table and eased the pressure on under-fire manager Alan Pardew by coming from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at home to Hull, with substitute Papiss Cisse scoring both the Magpies’ goals. Southampton won 1-0 away to a Swansea side who had to play more than half the match a man down after Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony was sent off. QPR and Stoke shared the points in a 2-2 draw at Loftus Road while honours were also even in the goalless draw between Burnley and Sund ...
A dramatic Premier League season comes to a conclusion Today, with Manchester City favorites to hit Liverpool and win the title.Manuel Pellegrini's City side will be champions if they draw or win their home game against West Ham. Liverpool - in the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster - can clinch their first league title since 1990 by beating Newcastle if City lose. At the bottom, Norwich will be relegated even if they beat Arsenal. The Canaries can finish level on points with West Brom if they beat the Gunners and Albion lose at home to Stoke, but Neil Adams's side would require a 17-goal swing in goal difference to prevent a return to the Championship. Manchester City top scorer Sergio Aguero is fit after a groin injury as Manuel Pellegrini's side look for the point which will secure the title. Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson returns to the squad after serving a three-match ban following his sending off against Manchester City. Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has been ruled out for severa ...
Premier League team news: Arsenal v Newcastle Arsenal expect to have captain Thomas Vermaelen back from a hamstring problem for Monday night's Barclays Premier League clash against Newcastle. Midfielder Abou Diaby will not be rushed into a return from a serious knee injury after reporting a slight groin problem after playing for the Under-21s in midweek. Defender Kieran Gibbs (hamstring) is still sidelined along with England midfielder Jack Wilshere (foot), Serge Gnabry and Theo Walcott (both knee). Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will hope for a further fitness boost ahead the trip to Arsenal. Midfielder Moussa Sissoko is back in training after missing the last three games with a hamstring problem and could feature at the Emirates Stadium, while full-back Mathieu Debuchy and striker Loic Remy could return to the starting line-up after appearing as substitutes in last weekend's 2-1 home defeat by Swansea. However, strikers Papiss Cisse (knee) and Luuk De Jong (ankle) are likely to be missing as medics continue ...
Loic Remy scored a stoppage-time winner as Newcastle ended a run of four successive home league defeats by beating Aston Villa at St James' Park. Gabriel Agbonlahor went close for Villa with three first-half shots before Papiss Cisse sidefooted a Remy pass over from 10 yards at the other end. Remy was found by Luuk De Jong's pass late on only to shoot against a post. However, he atoned when he latched on to De Jong's deflected shot, cut inside Ron Vlaar and fired into the net. Remy finish was special - Pardew Remy's effort was Newcastle's first league goal at home in five games and provided Alan Pardew's side with their first win at St James' Park since Boxing Day. The victory also took the Magpies to the 40-point target Pardew had set his side as they helped erase the memory of their poor recent form. Villa have now lost three of their last four Premier League games and lie just four points from the relegation zone. Ultimately, Remy proved the difference between the two sides and his return to the Newcas ...
Newcastle United Number 9 Shirt Something that initially inspired now appears to have morphed into a crippling load for Papiss Cisse, the Newcastle United number 9 shirt. The shirt that adorns his torso on match days may have the same single digit etched onto it that the great Alan Shearer proudly displayed for a decade, but for the man currently in possession it is a reminder of lofty expectations thus far unfulfilled. From Cole to Cisse, Newcastle United have been blessed with some special number nines. Inevitably with the responsibility and expectation comes an elevation of pressure, my theory is that replacing Papiss as the standard bearer for goal grabbing at the end of this season might actually set him free from the shadows of those former greats. (To feature like Dom, send in your letters/articles for our magazine/website to contributefirst let’s take a look at those who have worn the number nine shirt during the Premier League era and their records in the top flight. All stats apply only to Pre ...
Premier League: Chelsea (a) The Magpies return to London on Saturday looking to record an improbable fifth successive capital away win, after victories at QPR, Spurs, Palace and West Ham. Victory over Mourinho's mob would complete our first double of the season, following a 2-0 home win at SJP back in November. Kick-off at Stamford Bridge is at 3pm and all tickets for the away section have now been sold. NUFC: Not quite bare bones, but certainly a lean carcass of a squad, with Loic Remy (suspended) and Cheick Tiote, Fabricio Coloccini, Yoan Gouffran and Papiss Cisse (all injured) missing Saturday's game. Of those, Gouffran and Cisse have a chance of facing Spurs on Wednesday, with Tiote and Colo both predicted to be missing for at least three weeks. Colo last featured on New Years Day and has remained in Argentina since the club allowed him to return there last month. Of the fringe players, Gael Bigirimana is out and Gabriel Obertan doubtful, leaving the likes of Sylvain Marveaux and Dan Gosling to make u ...

FRIDAY'S TRANSFER GOSSIP COLUMN Liverpool could turn to Spartak Moscow's Brazilian midfielder Romulo, 23, who has also been scouted by Arsenal and Chelsea, after learning that Lucas Leiva could miss up to two months with a knee injury. John Terry's career at Chelsea could be coming to an end Stoke City striker Peter Crouch could be re-united with former manager Harry Redknapp who hopes to take the 32-year-old to Queens Park Rangers. West Ham are closing in on a double swoop that would see Italy internationals Antonio Nocerino, 28, and Marco Borriello, 31, arrive at Upton Park on loan. Cardiff City's proposed loan move for winger Wilfried Zaha, 21, means they will have to sign Manchester United's Fabio da Silva, 23, on a permanent basis because a team cannot sign two loan players from the same Premier League club. Monaco striker Lacina Traore, 23, could still be allowed to move to Everton despite a serious injury to his team-mate Radamel Falcao. Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse, 28, has rejected the chance t ...
VIP SINGLE WIN Newcastle - Manchester City 2 (1.70) With two consecutive Premier League losses, Newcastle have slipped down the table and are currently 8th with 33 points from 10 wins and three draws. They have also suffered a 1-2 loss in a FA Cup tie against Cardiff, which means the Magpies could lose four games in a row for the first time in just over a year. Alan Pardew has lost Fabricio Coloccini for the next few weeks and Mathieu Debuchy, who is serving a three-match ban, while Tim Krul is expected to return in goal and midfielder Yohan Cabaye looks to have overcome a recent injury. Newcastle are without a Premier League goal in 190 minutes since Papiss Cisse's 80th-minute penalty in the 5-1 win over Stoke. Scoring goals hasn't been a problem for Manchester City though, as six goals against West Ham on Wednesday took the City total to 92 from 31 games played this season. Manuel Pellegrini's side sits in 3rd place on the table, just two points shy of league-leaders Chelsea who have collected 46 points ...

Sport: EPL Market: Newcastle @ Aston Villa Pick: Lay Newcastle Odds: $3.95 Agency: Betfair Wager: 2 Units Analysis: If you look at the league table, Newcastle are a point above Villa, but the home side has played Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool while Newcastle got belted at City, they clung on against West Ham and a freak goal got them the points against Fulham. Villa have scored four goals from 11 shots on target so far this season (while Newcastle have scored just once from 10 shots on target). After a run of four Premier League wins at Villa Park against Newcastle, Aston Villa have failed to beat the Magpies on home soil in their past two league encounters. Last season Newcastle won 2-1 at Villa Park, with goals from Papiss Cisse and Yohan Cabaye. We have to lay Newcastle as they have won just two of their past 20 away games. They are 2-7-11 away but Villa at home are 5-5-10 but based on the win ratio, Newcastle should be closer to 10 than 3.95 so we are going for an away lay. LAY Newcastle here for 2 u ...

When the Premier League started in 1992, it included just one footballer known to be Muslim, Tottenham's Spanish midfielder Nayim. England's top division now features 40 Muslim players and they are having a significant effect on the culture of the game. On 5 February, 2012, Newcastle United played Aston Villa at St James' Park and one moment symbolised the impact Muslim players were having on the Premier League. After 30 minutes, Demba Ba scored for the home side. He raced to the corner flag and was joined by Senegalese compatriot Papiss Cisse. The two devout Muslims then sank to their knees in prayer.

Premier League top goalscorers this season (as of 23/04/13): Demba Ba - 13 Papiss Cisse - 8 Yohan Cabaye...
Alan Pardew has been interviewed in the local press today, and he is obviously delighted we were able to get all 3 points against what looked like a very solid Stoke side, but that’s Stoke’s 7th loss in the last nine Premier League games. Papiss Cisse smashes home the winner on 92 minutes This is what Alan Pardew had to say to the local press today: “It was a massive win for us and sets up Thursday night for a special evening.” “Our fans have earned the right to get the place as full as we can. “The margins are so small against them we need every advantage.” “It gives me the luxury of making Anzhi my priority – not Wigan. God willing, we’ll get a great win.” “I am ecstatic for our fans.” “That is a game that we’d have struggled to win with out best team.” “Stoke come here with a great game plan and a great mentality.” “They came here and made it difficult for us.” “We had to ask all sorts of different questions of them – and we did.” “This is a Stoke team t ...
Alan Pardew praised his Newcastle United side for 'winning ugly' as they launched another home fightback to see off Stoke on Sunday. The Magpies fell behind midway through the second half to a Jonathan Walters penalty, but Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse were on target for the hosts at St. James' Park to turn the Premier League fixture on its head and secure maximum points. United have been through similar scenarios in their previous two Tyneside league games - against Chelsea and Southampton - with identical victorious outcomes. And manager Pardew believes they yet again ground out the win on a difficult afternoon. "It was a tough game," "Stoke are really tough opposition, our fans are intelligent enough to know that. They defended deep, got bodies behind the ball, made us make mistake and we looked ugly. "But that's what they are good at, and they are always a threat, so to win it was a massive bonus for us. "We were quicker in the second half from set-plays - our throw-ins, goal-kicks and free-kicks. "We ...
MATCH DAY! Bring it on!!! Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is out of Thursday's Europa League last 16 first leg match at Anzhi Makhachkala. Cisse did not travel to Russia because of a virus, meaning Shola Ameobi had to be drafted into the squad. "I didn't have any intention of bringing Shola," said Newcastle manager Alan Pardew. "[The Luzhniki Stadium] is a surface that he's been advised in the past not really to play on." Defender Fabricio Coloccini (back) also stayed in Newcastle. Winger Hatem Ben Arfa is in Russia and Pardew is hopeful he will play some part on Thursday. Ben Arfa has not played since tearing a hamstring during the 2-1 Premier League defeat at Fulham on 10 December. Pardew is expecting a tough encounter against a side that has the likes of ex-Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o and former Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra in their ranks. "You need some luck, but you need a good technical game and you need to have the right mentality in the group. I think our mentality is strong," said Pard ...
NEWCASTLE FIRE 4 PAST SAINTS Newcastle recorded back to back home victories for the first time this season on Sunday afternoon in front of another packed house, coming from behind to make it three wins in their last four Premier League outings. And for Alan Pardew there was the added satisfaction of seeing his Magpies side finally beat a club he previously managed - the first time in five attempts this season. Conceding a goal so early galvanised both Newcastle players and crowd and the black and whites pressed forward in search of an equaliser, with Southampton surviving two credible penalty shouts for handball. Jinking into the Saints box, the former Bordeaux man opted to shoot and although goalkeeper Artur Boruc managed to block that attempt, Moussa Sissoko was ideally placed to ram home his third Newcastle goal. Within ten minutes United had grabbed the lead with an absolute rasper from Papiss Cisse, who unleashed a first-time shot of devastating power and accuracy from outside the box - another sensa ...
This is horrendous, fair few people complaining about this incorrect and clearly biased towards Southampton match report for Eurosport!! As for Lallana being there man of the match.. *** ! What do you lot think?... Premier League, St James' Park - Newcastle United 4 (Sissoko 33, Cisse 42, Cabaye 67, Hooiveld 79 og) Southampton 2 ( Schneiderlin 3, Lambert 50) Papiss Cisse benefited from a linesman error to score one of the goals of the season as Newcastle held off a luckless Southampton with a 4-2 Premier League win at St James' Park. Morgan Schneiderlin struck the opening goal for the visiting side before efforts from Moussa Sissoko (33) and Cisse - who appeared to be offside before he walloped a glorious volley over visiting goalkeeper Artur Boruc from 25 yards out on 42 minutes - handed the home side a merited 2-1 lead after a spirited recovery. Southampton were the sharper side at the outset of the second period and levelled when Rickie Lambert tucked Adam Lallana's cross into the net for his 100t ...
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has made two changes to his starting line-up for Saturday's Premier League home game against Reading (3pm kick-off). Midfielder Yohan Cabaye and long-serving striker Shola Ameobi are both in from the off, as the Magpies look to build on a goalless draw against Norwich last time out. The duo take the place of James Perch and Gabriel Obertan, who both drop down to the substitutes' bench, and for Cabaye, it will be his first start since undergoing groin surgery in the middle of November. United are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with goalkeeper Tim Krul protected by a back four of Mathieu Debuchy - making his home debut - Mike Williamson, captain Fabricio Coloccini and Davide Santon. Vurnon Anita and Cabaye will anchor the hosts' midfield, with Ameobi, Sylvain Marveaux and Jonas Gutierrez providing the support and creativity for lone striker Papiss Cisse. Newcastle's bench has a much-more experienced look about it than in recent weeks. Along with Perch and Ob ...
With the departure of Demba Ba to Chelsea, the pursuit of a striker has intensified. Signing a front man in this January transfer window now seems a necessity. Despite the often frenetic, take-what-you-can-get nature of the mid-season market, the club can’t afford to settle for any old runt who could make up the numbers. Ba was a prolific goalscorer for Newcastle, and there’s no denying that he has left a gaping hole in the squad. Of course, the quality of Papiss Cisse adds some comfort to a difficult situation, but the Magpies need another striker to fire us through the remainder of the Premier League season and Europa League campaign. With that in mind, rumours of Danny Graham possibly making a move to St James Park are welcoming. Admittedly, the 27 year old doesn’t have as much quality as Ba, but the Swansea City player has certainly adapted to life in the top tier of English football since his move from Watford last season. He managed 12 goals in 36 league games last season, an impressive figure ...
BIG BOOTS TO FILL: Shola Ameobi replaced Demba Ba last night at St James’ Park. He is pictured after Everton’s Victor Anichebe put the visitors in front during the Magpies’ 2-1 defeat Alan Pardew is confident Newcastle United will sign an attacking replacement for Demba Ba before the transfer window closes, but admits it will not be easy to plug the gap that will be left by the striker's £7.5m move to Chelsea. Ba travelled to London yesterday afternoon to discuss terms with Chelsea officials after the London club triggered the much-publicised release clause in his contract. He is expected to complete a medical this morning, and while financial discussions are understood to have been complicated, his transfer should be concluded later today. In his absence, and despite a fourth league goal of the season from Papiss Cisse, Newcastle slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Everton that leaves them just two points clear of the Premier League relegation zone. Cisse and Shola Ameobi are the only experienced centre-fo ...

SATURDAY LIVE Sport vibe Headline: Pardew a hypocrite, says Ferguson Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has accused Alan Pardew of hypocrisy after the Newcastle manager criticised his behaviour on Boxing Day. Pardew said the Football Association should have punished Ferguson for confronting officials during Manchester United's 4-3 win at Old Trafford. "Alan Pardew is the worst for haranguing referees. His whole staff [do it] every game," Ferguson said. Pardew served a two-match ban for pushing a match official in August. Ferguson confronted referee Mike Dean, his assistant Jake Collin and the fourth official Neil Swarbrick at the start of the second half of the Premier League game at Old Trafford to protest over Newcastle's second goal. Dean had ruled that Papiss Cisse was not interfering with play when Jonny Evans put through his own goal after 28 minutes, even though the Senegal international was in an offside position when Danny Simpson hit the initial shot. Pardew was unhappy that the United ...
BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson is pitting his wits against a different guest each week this season. His opponent for the latest round of festive Premier League fixtures is Lethal Bizzle. Bizzle, whose real name is Maxwell Ansah, reached number one in the UK R&B charts with his single "Oi!" back in 2002. Lethal Bizzle released a single featuring Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong earlier this year Arsenal v Newcastle (17:30 GMT) Newcastle were down to the bare bones for their trip to Old Trafford and almost had no choice but to go and attack Manchester United with the players they had. It almost paid off too but, for me, the question is how much did it take out of them ahead of their trip to the Emirates? I would suspect the answer is quite a lot. Papiss Cisse celebrates after scoring Newcastle failed to beat Manchester United despite taking the lead three times at Old Trafford Arsenal, in contrast, had Boxing Day off. The Gunners are going for a third League win in a row and it probably won't ...
Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has admitted that he is prepared for a tough match when Newcastle United visit Old Trafford on Boxing Day. Having faced the Magpies earlier in the season, 24-year-old centre-back Evans has conceded that he is likely to be tested to the maximum by Senegalese strike duo Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse. "They are both very powerful," Evans told the club's official website. "What Newcastle do very well is work the ball wide and put it in the box. They don't give you aminute and those two are powerful lads." "A lot of their goals come that way, when they beat people in theair and the ball is floating around in the box.

Premier League goals of 2012 - including Papiss Cisse, Peter Crouch and Hatem Ben Arfa! Watch the top five here:
BA ON TOP FORM AS NEWCASTLE DOMINATE After a disastrous November, it was a happy Monday on Tyneside after Demba Ba's double and Gael Bigirimana's first goal gave United a welcome win over Wigan. A crucial decision finally went in our favour as Papiss Cisse was sent tumbling in the box by Maynor Figueroa and was red-carded before Ba tucked away the penalty after just 13 minutes. And eight minutes later it was pretty much game over when Davide Santon's shot was pushed out by Ali Al Habsi to Ba who tucked in the rebound to take his Premier League tally into double figures. Bigirimana came on at the break for Cheick Tiote, who was walking a disciplinary tightrope, effectively one tackle away from a suspension and made his mark with just under 20 minutes remaining with a fantastic first strike for the club. The Burundi born Bigirimana tucked in a beautiful 25-yard strike with his left foot, giving the keeper no chance, clearly one of the goals he'd remember. FT: Newcastle United 3-0 Wigan Athletic D. Ba 13' ( ...
So SK says that Rooney's overhead kick is THE finest of the Premier League history? I'd honestly say that's one of the finest, but not THE finest. What about RVP's goal against Charlton? Henry's goal vs Man Utd when Barthez was in goal at Highbury? Crouch's vs Man City? If any goal from the BPL would be the finest, it'd be Papiss Cisse vs Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. You see overhead kick more commonly than seeing a goal like Cisse's, and Cisse's goal was out of the ordinary. This is truly my opinion but SK said it was a "FACT" that Rooney's overhead kick was the finest. I'd honestly want a unbiased vote on which goal was the best, when I say unbiased, I mean people who live outside the UK and mainly support a team outside the BPL. DD

Premier League review:Gareth Bale returned to haunt his former employers today as Tottenham held on to win at Southampton, while Papiss Cisse deflected home a fortunate injury-time winner for Newcastle against West Bromwich Albion.
Manchester United's blistering start blew away Newcastle as their 3-0 away win sent the visitors into second in the Premier League. United raced into a 2-0 lead in a frenetic 15 minutes courtesy of goals from defenders Jonny Evans and Patrice Evra, but the hosts felt Papiss Cisse had pulled one back before Tom Cleverley added a long-range third. Danny Welbeck scuffed wide for United in the opening minutes, but the Magpies failed to heed this warning and Robin Van Persie's precise corner was powered in by Evans (8). Welbeck somehow dragged wide after robbing Steve Harper and Rafael Da Silva fired across the face before the Toon keeper made amends with a diving stop from Wayne Rooney's free-kick. But the hosts' hapless marking at corners was exposed again when the diminutive Evra (15) stole into the box to nod home and Jonas Gutierrez's shot wide was the best the Magpies could muster in the first-half. Newcastle thought they had reduced the deficit after the break as Cisse's header was clawed away from the ...

Chelsea v. Newcastle Preview (Sky Sports) Roberto Di Matteo and Eden HazardChelsea host Newcastle United in the Saturday evening kick-off looking to make it a perfect three wins on the bounce in this season's Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo's early league leaders followed up their 2-0 away win at Wigan on Sunday with a pulsating 4-2 home victory over new boys Reading on Wednesday. The Blues had to come from behind to beat Brian McDermott's side and Di Matteo will be looking for his team to tighten up at the back, especially against top strikers Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba. Cisse notched a brace - including his curling wonder-goal - as the Magpies downed the Blues 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in May last season. And Ba - who is hoping to be fit from a sore shin - showed his own goalscoring prowess with the opener as Alan Pardew's side beat former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas' new team Tottenham 2-1 last weekend to get their season off to a winning start. Team News Gary Cahill may continue in the starting line ...

Cisse,BA, out of Olympic . Newcastle United duo Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba have been left out of the Senegal squad for the Olympic Games. Senegal had been hopeful of naming the pair, who scored 29 English Premier League goals between them last season, but failed to come to an agreement with Newcastle. West Ham United midfielder Mohamed Diame (25 years old), FC Copenhagen striker Dame N'Doye (27) and Metalist Kharkiv defender Papa Gueye (28) have been selected as the squad's three over- age players. Both Diame and N'Doye featured in this year's Africa Cup of Nations, when Senegal bowed out in the group stage without registering a win. French-born Everton winger Magaye Gueye, who switched his international allegiance earlier this year, has also been picked. Senegal will open their campaign against hosts Great Britain at Old Trafford, Manchester, on July 26, before taking on Uruguay at London's Wembley Stadium three days later. They will end their Group A campaign against the United Arab Emirates at the City ...

Newcastle's super-striker Papiss Cisse lit up Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night with a pair of incredible goals.
Papiss Cisse scored two stunning goals as Newcastle beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to boost their chances of a top four Premier League finish. Roberto Di Matteo admitted after the game that his side's chances of qualifying for the Champions League now rest on winning this year's final. Tottenham won back to back league games for the first time since January last night, as Harry Redknapp's side maintained their position in fourth. Spurs triumphed 4-1 against Bolton, thanks to goals from Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart and a brace by Emmanuel Adebayor.

Papiss Cisse says his goal came at the perfect moment. A stunning double from Papiss Cisse kept Newcastle in the hunt for a Champions League berth with a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge. The Magpies striker found the net in each half to keep the visitors level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham and all but end Chelsea's hopes of qualifying for Europe's elite via the Premier League. The Blues were quickest out of the blocks and Meireles missed a couple of early chances which the hosts paid dearly for on 19 minutes. David Santon went on a surging run before playing in Cisse, and the Senegalese teed himself up with his first touch to fire a stunning volley past Petr Cech. It took until the 36th minute before the Blues mustered a response with Florent Malouda heading wide from a pinpoint Fernando Torres cross. Branislav Ivanovic then headed over from a Meireles corner before the visitors went agonisingly close to a second when Demba Ba rattled the bar a minute before the break. John Obi Mikel was lucky to esca ...

Victor Moses' early double set Wigan on their way to yet another big-time conquest as Roberto Martinez's men gave their survival hopes a mighty boost by brushing aside Champions League hopefuls Newcastle 4-0. Moses' quick-fire brace in the 13th and 15th minutes left Alan Pardew's Magpies reeling and further first-half strikes from Shaun Maloney and Franco Di Santo ensured the buoyant Latics had effectively sealed the points before the break. Papiss Cisse twice hit the woodwork as the visitors rallied in the second half, but their hopes of holding down at least a top-four place in the Premier League had long since suffered a serious blow. Having already beaten Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal on their extraordinary late-season run, Wigan were expected to start with confidence but not even the most optimistic of Latics could have foreseen their whirlwind opening. The recalled Maloney spread panic with a free-kick in the second minute and Moses had already brought a save out of Tim Krul before the st ...

Premier League signing of the season - Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba, Yohanne Cabaye?
Newcastle striker Demba Ba has admitted it is his "dream" to play for Paris Saint-Germain, but is currently happy to stay at St James' Park after rediscovering his love of football. Ba, 26, joined Newcastle on a free transfer in the summer and scored 15 goals in his first 19 Premier League appearances for the Magpies. Although his goalscoring record has taken a hit since January, due to Africa Cup of Nations duty and the arrival of compatriot Papiss Cisse, he remains one of the signings of the season. But the Senegal international says he would like to play in Ligue 1 one day. "It's always a dream for me to play one day at PSG," Ba is quoted as saying in The Mirror. "But I'm really happy where I am in Newcastle. The English league suits me perfectly. "I always loved PSG. I saw them beat Marseille at (Newcastle team-mate) Yohan Cabaye's place recently. "But since I joined Newcastle, I have rediscovered the feeling I had when I was a young boy playing on the pitches at the bottom of the street." And Ba insi ...

A brace from Papiss Cisse earned Newcastle United a 2-0 home victory against Liverpool in the Premier League -
Newcastle 2 Liverpool 0 REPORT Papiss Cisse showed £35 million man Andy Carroll how to do it as Newcastle increased their advantage over Liverpool to 11 points. The Senegal international's 19th-minute header set the Magpies on their way to a victory which leaves them in pole position to claim a top-six Barclays Premier League finish, and his second with 59 minutes gone sealed it. But on a black day for the visitors, keeper Pepe Reina was sent off nine minutes from time for head-butting defender James Perch, indicating as he belatedly left the pitch that he would resume their discussion after the final whistle. Cisse has now scored seven goals in as many games, one fewer than Carroll had managed in 48 appearances for the Merseyside club. The Gateshead-born frontman's unhappy return ended with 11 minutes left when he was substituted after he had been serenaded with a resounding chorus of: "what a waste of money'', while fellow old boy Jose Enrique, who had earlier been taunted over his claims that Newcastl ...
