Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Cisse's brace against Swansea

The Magpies striker saved Alan Pardew's side once again in Wales.

It was Deja vu at Swansea on Saturday. Newcastle United trailed the Swans and needed two goals from Papiss Cisse to salvage a 2-2 draw. Sound familiar?

Yes, this isn't the first time a brace from the Senegalese striker has pulled them out of trouble. And Alan Pardew will be very grateful.

But the panic button is still on for the Magpies, who are without a Premier League win after seven games. The manner of their defending will also disturb supporters once again, after Wilfried Bony was allowed an alarming amount of space to open the scoring.

Cisse, though, saved the day once more and is now Newcastle's top scorer for the season by far, scoring four goals in just three appearances for the St James' Park outfit.

“The manager needs me and the team needs me but I will keep going and work hard,” he told Sky Sports after the game. “I want my team to work hard and believe.” “I know it’s not easy but keep going.”

“I like playing here but today was very, very hard. Swansea kept the ball but my team had to run and run. I scored two but Gabby [Obertan] and Sammy [Ameobi] gave me good crosses.

“I just said well done to both. We worked hard.”

Understandably, Newcastle fans were rather pleased with his performance...
