Papiss Cisse: Has netted only three goals so far this season

Papiss Cisse: Has netted only three goals so far this season

The Senegal international was a revelation on Tyneside last term, with a flurry of goals over the second half of the campaign announcing his arrival in style.

He settled immediately following a January switch from Freiburg, finding the target 13 times in 14 appearances.

Cisse has found the going a little tougher this season, with a three-goal return spread across the Premier League, Capital One Cup and Europa League.

The 27-year-old is disappointed not to have built on his success from 2011/12, but remains confident that the goals will come once the floodgates open.

He said: "I know I was scoring in every match last season, so when I have not been scoring I have felt a little bit down.

"But I have got three goals now, one in each competition, and that makes me certain that I will soon be back to what I was last season."
