Newcastle United 2-1 Aston Villa – Highlights

Papiss Demba Cisse had a dream debut as his goal gave Newcastle United a 2-1 win at home to Aston Villa, putting his side fifth in the Premier League.

Cisse, signed from Freiburg in January but unavailable until now because of the African Cup of Nations, rifled in an expert half-volley with 18 minutes left to add to Senegal team-mate Demba Ba’s opener, which had been cancelled out by Robbie Keane’s 150th goal in English football.

The result sees Toon move above Arsenal into fifth, behind Chellsea only on goal difference: Alan Pardew’s men will hope that Manchester United get a positive result at Stamford Bridge as the Magpies chase an unlikely Champions League place.
