Papiss Demba Cisse scored twice as Newcastle won 3-1 at the Hawthorns, on Sunday.
Cisse scored in the 6th and 34th minute and Hatem Ben Arfa’s added another,a superb solo effort in the 12th minut. Substitute Shane Long scored a consolation goal for the Baggies in the 52nd after a defensive mixup by the Newcastle defenders.
Cisse has now scored a total of five goals in six league games ever since he joined Newcastle in January from Germany’s Freiburg.
Newcastle are now eight points clear of Liverpool FC in sixth spot(tied with Chelsea on points tally) and trail Tottenham Hotspur FC – and a UEFA Champions League qualifying berth – by only five points.
