Papiss Cisse fired a rugged but impressive looking Newcastle team to a two goal victory over rivals for fourth place Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with two goals of serious quality, but it was the second which sticks out as one of the finest scored this season, and indeed in the history of the English top-flight. Taking a knock down from late substitute Shola Ameobi to the left hand corner of the box, and a ridiculous distance from goal, Cisse hit a curling volley that looped over Chelsea keeper Petr Cech and into the back of the net, to send the travelling Newcastle support into raptures. Newcastle fans might not have been able to see the strike if it wasn't for the massive ten minutes of additional time added by referee Mark Halsey in the wake of a nasty challenge by John Obi Mikel on Cheick Tiote, which may yet see the Nigerian centre-midfielder given a retrospective ban. Replays seemed to suggest intent, but we'll leave that up to the referee and the FA. One question now pops its head up: what exactly is Papiss Cisse worth? If Andy Carroll is worth £35m, the 13 goals in just twelve games that Cisse has scored since joining in January, and the manner of each and every one of them means any prospective buyers will have to dig seriously deep to even get a sniff of the new Newcastle number nine hero.
