The Magpies striker saved Alan Pardew's side once again in Wales.
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...
Not that it would change a great deal but I'd feel better about the #NUFC side if Cisse was captain instead of him who is desperate to go— Adam (@adamf2384) October 4, 2014
When Cisse is on fire, all we need to do is to give the ball to him in the penalty area. Anything else he does is magic. #NUFC— HenryHcode (@HenryHcode) October 4, 2014
Riviere has had his time. #NUFC should start Cissé and Perez up front next game.— Slab Bulkhead (@WriterRyan) October 4, 2014
Good to see Papiss Cisse return to the scoring form we all know he is capable of #nufc— Thomas Glemberg (@Thomas__Aidan) October 4, 2014
