Chelsea’s nemesis haunts them yet again

Talk about making an impact! Having only just been subbed on by Alan Pardew in place for Remy Cabella, Papiss Demba Cisse made an immediate impact by giving Newcastle United a surprising lead against Chelsea at St James’ Park.

Pardew said pre-match that he wasn’t going to be ‘parking the bus’ and despite not too many of us believing the former West Ham manager, he has been true to his word with the Magpies certainly giving Jose Mourinho’s side a run for their money!

The Blues still have plenty of time to protect their 23-game unbeaten run – which stands to be a club record if they avoid defeat against Newcastle today – but they will no doubt be attacking with caution knowing that Cisse is at the other end giving that he loves a goal against the Blues!

Who remembers this?

Anyway, Cisse’s one today wasn’t quite Goal of the Season contender worthy but it may well prove to be just as sweet
