Cisse’s response when asked if Newcastle can go on a winning run

Newcastle Utd - Gate

Newcastle United are in danger of getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season.

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse has told The Chronicle that his side can go on a winning run.

The Magpies returned to winning ways just before the international break when they got the better of Bournemouth 1-0 away from home at the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League.

“Maybe it can,” Cisse told The Chronicle when asked if the win against Bournemouth could be the start of a winning run.

“It hasn’t been easy for Newcastle at this moment. We need to keep going and work hard.”

Newcastle are struggling at the moment and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

Steve McClaren’s side are currently 17th in the Premier League table with 10 points from 12 matches, just two points above the relegation zone.

The Magpies will take on Leicester City at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday.

While many will expect Newcastle to pick up all three points, Leicester are playing well and are third in the standings at the moment.

Claudio Ranieri’s side will head into Saturday’s game with confidence, and they could even win.
