Newcastle’s first win at Chelsea since 1986 carries huge implications in the league table. And yet, what everyone is talking about: Papiss Cisse’s pair of stunning strikes.
The Senegalese striker put his Magpies ahead early with a goal that drew comparisons to one of Thierry Henry’s famous efforts. Then, in stoppage time, he outdid himself with a second that checked the boxes on “audacious” and “outrageous,” a swerving, dipping volley that will have jaws dropping from London to Lima.
Cisse, by the way, has 13 goals in his first dozen Newcastle appearances. Good signing? Yeah, probably safe to say so.
Watch it now before internet Interpol yanks it down.
