Cisse scored in the 94th minute of Newcastle's 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Cisse scored his first goal since late-December and now has two goals and two assists on the season. With Loic Remy sidelined due to a calf injury, Cisse should see more time up front, but what he does with that playing time probably won't be impactful for most fantasy leagues.

Cisse (back) has declared himself fit for Wednesday's match against Tottenham, Chronicle Live reports.

Cisse trained ahead of last weekend's match against Chelsea, but wasn't able to pass a late fitness test. Despite the return to fitness, he remains a bit part of the Newcastle attack.

Newcastle have reportedly rejected a 9 million bid for Cisse from an unnamed Qatar club, the Chronicle reports.

Cisse hasn't been a fixture in the Newcastle lineup this season, which has resulted in only one goal and two assists in his 14 appearances. Despite the limited playing time, it doesn't appear that the club wants to move him, rejecting a prior inquiry from West Ham.

Cisse came off the bench and scored from the spot in the 80th minute of Newcastle's 5-1 win over Stoke City on Boxing Day.

Cisse recently battled a heel injury, but the 28-year old appears to be back to fitness. The goal was his first of the season, as he's been mostly out of the starting XI this year.

Cisse assisted on Loic Remy's 10th minute goal in Newcastle's 2-3 loss to Hull City on Saturday.

While Cisse does have two assists so far, he has only managed three shots on target in five matches this season. It will be tough for the Senegalese international to find the back of the net with such few opportunities to do so.

Cisse assisted on Hatem Ben Arfa's 18th minute goal during Saturday's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

The assists was Cisse's first of the year, although he was also quite active on the shooting front, taking five shots on his own, although only one was on goal. He's now taken a combined 11 shots in his last two Premier League matches, so it's possible that he could find the back of the net soon. His next opportunity comes next Saturday against Hull City.
