Papiss Cisse deals in wonder goals. The striker has been rightly criticised this season for scoring only six league goals this season as Newcastle, and his performances have not been up to scratch as his side have faltered.
However, after winning the Goal of the Season award for his strike against Chelsea last season, Cisse made his case for the prize this season with another volley against Southampton.
After Tim Krul laucnhed the ball upfield, Jonas Gutierrez ‘assisted’ by leaning into Jos Hooiveld and the ball broke to Cisse. The Senegal striker aimed a dipping volley at goal. It went straight down the middle of the goal, but still left Artur Boruc with no chance.
