Pardew Tips Cisse To Shoot Down The Blues

31 January 2013 01:00
Papiss Cisse was back to his scoring ways on Tuesday, and that pleased Alan Pardew almost as much as the win.

He scored two stunning goals in Newcastle United’s 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge late last season, so he knows what it's like to shoot down the Blue Millionaires.

Alan Pardew: “I think Papiss scoring was important.

“He’s had a few big chances and not scored.

“That’ll do him the world of good, and it was a great pass from Sissoko.

“The stadium’s going to have a different feel on Saturday.

“We’ve got a big club coming – Chelsea – and the players deserve it to be positive after that performance, and I think it will be.

“For me on the sidelines, we’ve got a team that can challenge Chelsea.

“We’ll need a bit of luck to beat them, but I think we can do it.”
