Moussa Sissoko: Knows his side must improve

After initially signaling an improvement in results on Tyneside, Sissoko and his fellow January arrivals have come under criticism due to the Magpies' poor form, which has seen them win only one of their last five league games.

And with Alan Pardew's side sitting perilously close to the relegation zone in 17th, Sissoko has challenged his teammates to turn things around.

"As professionals we need to go out in the next game and show a different side to the one we did against Liverpool," he told the Sun.

"I'm proud to be a Newcastle player, and I want to do my best everytime I play for the club."

Newcastle travel to West Ham on Saturday in need of a vast improvement, with only four five points separating them and Wigan in 18th, who have a game in hand.

Although they are not in danger just yet, Sissoko knows that if their form continues until the end of the season, they may well find themselves facing Championship football next season.

"After a heavy defeat it hurts, especially when it is at home," he added.

"We'll go to West Ham and give 100% and, and hopefully, get the win."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
