Newcastle's Papiss Cisse outlines what side needs to do away from home

Newcastle's away form has been dire this season.

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse has said the side need to replicate aspects of their home form on the road if they are to survive.

The Magpies head to Anfied to take on Liverpool on Saturday on the back of two positive results at St James' Park - which has seen them beat Swansea City and draw against Manchester City - meaning they are now two points adrift of safety with four games remaining.

Cisse is quoted in the Chronicle, saying: “It’s never going to be easy to go to Liverpool.

“But we have a team now who is ready to play and take on any team - and we have to do so. We can change the away form.

“The work and the form we have at home, we have to take that into the away games. We need to do something at Anfield and try to win the game.”

Rafa Benitez faces a big task taking his side back to his old club, as they face a Liverpool side that has scored four times in each of their last three home games. 

But morale will be boosted by the last two results, and there is a chance that Liverpool could make a number of changes with the first leg of their Europa League semi-final firmly on their minds.

Newcastle's away form this season has been retched as they have only managed to pick up seven points on the road this season, but have shown they can turn up against the bigger sides as they have beaten Tottenham on the road, and picked up a point at Old Trafford

Cisse himself will be looking to find his scoring boots having not scored in 2016, and only finding the net twice all season. He seems to be getting a starting place ahead of Aleksandar Mitrovic at the moment, but will need to prove his worth sooner or later in front of goal.
