Players, pundits and managers alike are lining up to praise Newcastle United right now, and that’s just what a former and a current Arsenal midfielder have done.
Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas and sidelined Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere have both moved to compliment Newcastle’s on fire striker, Papiss Cisse.
After Cisse’s second goal against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Friday, Fabregas logged onto Twitter to let his followers know what he thought about it.
Cesc Tweeted: “What a goal by Cisse” when the Spaniard saw the delightfully chipped goal by Papiss on Good Friday, and it was a sensational goal.

Cisse made it ten goals in nine Premier League goals today by netting the second against Bolton and his hot streak in front of goal hasn’t gone unnoticed by Jack Wilshere.
The injured Arsenal midfielder has previously angered Newcastle fans with his Tweets about Tim Krul’s clash with Robin van Persie at the Emirates earlier in the season.
However, this afternoon Wilshere Tweeted: “Shock Cisse scored! #player” as Papiss tapped in at St James’ Park, although there was a hint off offside about the goal.
It is nice to see Newcastle United and Papiss Cisse getting the plaudits and it should mean plenty to the Senegal striker as it’s coming from his fellow professionals.
The fact that Newcastle are now level on points with Tottenham and in with a real shout for Champions League qualification having won five Premier League matches on the spin has a lot to do with Cisse’s goals.
They’ve helped fire Alan Pardew’s men into the current great position they’re in, but I have a feeling it will be Hatem Ben Arfa and not Papiss who take the plaudits this evening!
