Papiss Cisse
Newcastle United’s main threat will come from Papiss Cisse who has scored seven times in his last nine Premier League appearances. The Senegal striker most recently helped Newcastle end Chelsea’s unbeaten streak with a brace at St James’ Park, so he will be hungry to net against another top side.
