De Jong, Cabella & Sissoko react on Twitter to Newcastle's QPR win

The Newcastle United trio were able to celebrate a fifth Premier League win in a row on social media.

Newcastle United were able to celebrate a sixth consecutive win in all competitions on Saturday afternoon, with Alan Pardew's side securing their fifth Premier League victory in a row.

Queens Park Rangers were the unfortunate side that gave a good account of themselves but were beaten by a second-half strike from Moussa Sissoko.

The Magpies, though, were good value for their victory and - incredibly - briefly moved fourth in the table before Manchester United beat Arsenal in the day's late kick-off.

"Going forward we carried a threat all game and Moussa Sissoko was the best player on the pitch. It was a good team goal. You can see the strengths of our team," manager Pardew told reporters after the game.

"We're sound defensively and if teams overcommit on the break we're very, very dangerous, and so the goal we got was a bit different as the best chances we got were on the break. But it was a really well-thought out goal from Moussa."

And the Newcastle boss wasn't the only man to take delight in the QPR win.

After the 1-0 triumph, match-winner Sissoko and Remy Cabella (who played the majority of the game) were joined by late substitute Adam Armstrong in celebration on Twitter. Injured forward Siem de Jong, meanwhile, also congratulated his team-mates.
