Papiss Cisse: Looking to end the season in style

The Senegalese striker says that, despite their indifferent campaign in the league, Newcastle can end on a real high with success in Europe.

The Magpies are into the last eight of the Europa League, where they will face Portuguese giants Benfica, and Cisse is confident they can also break into the top 10, whilst picking up some long-awaited silverware.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I'm happy because I've scored a few goals and the team are starting to play well.

"We have enough games left now that can take us to a top-10 position.

"That is important for us. We need to start looking to next season already. That would give us a solid foundation to build from.

"I know that's the objective of the gaffer. We look at our remaining games and we feel we can get the wins we need to do it.

"We have the Europa League still. We are now into the important stages of the competition.

"Nobody knows if we'll win it. But the aim is to get to the final and I think that we can achieve that."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
