Sissoko Scores Brace On Home Debut As Chelsea Lose 3-2 To Newcastle

NEWCASTLE UNITED'S FRENCH MIDFIELDER, MOUSSA SISSOKO CELEBRATES HIS SECOND GOAL

NEWCASTLE UNITED’S FRENCH MIDFIELDER, MOUSSA SISSOKO CELEBRATES HIS SECOND GOAL

Alan Pardew’s January signing, Moussa Sissoko, scored twice on his home debut as Newcastle United fought back to seal a well deserved 3-2 win over Chelsea at St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.

Although Chelsea will feel disappointed that referee Howard Webb denied them a penalty when Steven Taylor seemed to use his hand in blocking a Lampard shot but overall, the Stamford Bridge outfit will have themselves to blame as they got off to a horrible start, due to a combination of uncharacteristic giveaways by their talented attacking players, the less than ideal midfield pairing of Frank Lampard and Ramires, and some solid pressuring by Newcastle.

The hero of the afternoon would undoubtedly be the French midfield maestro, Moussa Sissoko, whose pacy runs and energy continued to prove a threat for the visitors throughout the match; making late runs into the box and surging past Chelsea defenders to create scoring chances.

Newcastle’s victory makes it their first time in 11 months where they win back-to-back Premier League matches.
