Cisse came on in the 53rd minute and scored twice in the second half to lead Newcastle to a 2-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday.

Cisse incredibly has seven goals this season in just nine appearances, thanks to three separate two-goal outings, which leaves him with fewer goals than only Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez.

Cisse, who has missed the last two games due to a knee injury, will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Liverpool, manager Alan Pardew said Friday. "The only slight issue I have is with Papiss Cisse and is he going to be fit," he said. "We are in a very similar position to where we were at Tottenham (last weekend), so we will have to wait and see."

Cisse's return would surely be good news for fantasy owners, as the matchup against Liverpool is an enticing one from a scoring perspective, despite their home clean sheet last weekend against Hull City.

Cisse notched an assist in Newcastle's 1-0 win over Leicester on Saturday.

Cisse continued his unexpected fantasy outburst with four goals and an assist in his last four matches. Eventually fantasy owners will need to take this output seriously, but that consideration still a couple of weeks off.

Cisse is expected to be in manager Alan Pardew's starting XI for Newcastle's upcoming home clash with Leicester on Saturday, the Chronicle reports.

Cisse's fitness was in question after a quick turnaround from international duty with Senegal, but looks to be ready to go for the weekend. After netting four times in his last three games, Cisse looks rejuvenated and on an excellent run of form. Fantasy owners should be somewhat skeptical of a striker who only managed two goals over 15 appearances last season, but if the price is right, Cisse could be an interesting stopgap option.

Cisse came on in the 45th minute of Newcastle's 0-1 loss to Stoke on Monday.

Cisse is still working his way back to full fitness after starting the season sidelined with a knee injury. After scoring a brace last week against Hull, the Senegalese striker may begin to eat into Emmanuel Rivière's minutes, with manager Alan Pardew under immense pressure to find goals in his squad.
