Newcastle striker Cisse proud to be breaking club scoring records

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse is quickly climbing the club's goalscoring charts.

Cisse proved the matchwinner against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The number 9 is now level with Rob Lee (34) in United's all-time Premier League goalscoring charts as he moved to joint seventh in the table.

Cisse's overall tally is 42 goals since joining the club from Freiburg three years ago.

Only Alan Shearer, Peter Beardsley, Andy Cole, Shola Ameobi, Ferdinand and Solano have more Prem goals for United than Cisse.

Cisse told the Evening Chronicle: "It's good to be up there.

"But it's what I work for in the week at the training ground.

"I say to the players if you have it give it to me.

"Maybe in a game I will only get one chance."
