Time to swap Demba Ba for his club and country counterpart
In the first half of the season the two goals Papiss Cisse bagged against West Brom on Sunday would have been scored by his strike partner Demba Ba.
When Cisse converted Hatem Ben Arfa's low ball to the open the scoring, he was only able to do so because Ba missed the pull back at the near post.
Then, when Cisse wrapped up the win by notching the third, Ba had done all the hard work down the left and Cisse tucked away another Ben Arfa cross after Ba had been felled by a West Brom defender.
Cisse's match came to an disconcerting end when he was taken off on a stretcher, but it has since been reported that he only suffered from cramp and is expected to face Liverpool on Sunday.
Alan Pardew lined up with a front three against the Baggies with Ben Arfa and Ba out wide and Cisse playing through the middle.
It's a formation that could bring the best out of the mercurial Ben Arfa and even though Pardew described the display as "champagne football", it may stifle Ba's goals return.
Ba started the season in sensational style and already has 16 goals to his name.
However, with Cisse as the focal point of the attack, Ba is now playing a support role and will no longer get on the end of as many balls into the box.
This will be detrimental to Ba's points scoring potential, but bringing his countryman Cisse into your Fantasy League team could have a massive impact on your campaign.
After arriving on Tyneside in the January transfer window, Cisse scored on his debut and has bagged three in his last two games, bringing his tally to six goals already .
He brought a fantastic scoring record with him from Germany, where the Senegal poacher plundered 37 goals in just 65 Bundesliga games for Freiburg.
Newcastle spent an estimated £9 million to bring the 26-year-old to the North East, money they received when they sold Andy Carroll to Liverpool last year.
The new Toon Army number nine will come against his predecessor on Sunday when the Reds visit St James Park and the form guide says Cisse will come out on top.
In a league table based upon matches played since the turn of the year Liverpool would be in the bottom three and they've lost two in a row, while Newcastle have won their last two encounters.
Do you think Cisse will keep scoring for Newcastle? And what of Demba Ba? Can the Magpies still secure a European place? Have your say below
