Sissoko registered an impressive three assists in Newcastle's exciting 6-2 win over Norwich City on Sunday.

Sissoko's three helpers all came over the course of Newcastle's first four goals, as his final ball split the Norwich defense regularly Sunday. The catalyst of the Magpies' eye-opening display, Sissoko now boasts four assists on the campaign, which trails only three Premier League players. Although the Frenchman has yet to score, his confidence should be brimming ahead of this weekend's Tyne-Wear derby.

Sissoko picked up an assist in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Watford.

Sissoko played in Daryl Janmaat who slotted home from close range in the 62nd minute. The French midfielder has yet to make a big impact this season and may look for an exit in the January transfer window if the side's woeful form continues.

Sissoko took one shot (none on target) and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

Sissoko took the only shot for the Magpies, who were left with 10 men for the vast majority of the game. Sissoko was also cautioned for the first time this season after picking up nine yellow's last season. Discipline could be an issue further down the road for the 26-year-old France international.

Sissoko (groin) is starting Saturday against Arsenal.

Sissoko missed the last two games due to the ailment, but he apparently passed his late fitness test to get back into the lineup. He will line up on the right wing, though he may have his hands full defensively with Arsenal starting Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out wide.

Sissoko (groin) will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Sissoko has already missed two games due to the ailment, and while he's at least in contention to play, it's a tough matchup against an Arsenal side that has been better on the road so far this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko (groin) is not in the 18-man squad to face Manchester United on Saturday.

Sissoko was doubtful for the match due to the ailment, which he suffered last weekend against Swansea City, and Ayoze Perez will start in his place at Old Trafford.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko could be held out of Saturday's match against Manchester United because of a groin injury.

Sissoko lasted just 45 minutes last weekend against Swansea City due to the ailment, and while the club was initially fearful that he suffered a major injury, scans showed it to be not nearly as severe. While he seems like a bit of a long shot to play this weekend, he could return the following weekend against Arsenal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sissoko strained his groin during Saturday's match against Swansea and is currently undergoing further medical evaluation, Richard Mennear of The Shields Gazette reports.

Sissoko was subbed off at halftime in favor of defender Steven Taylor after Newcastle became short-handed when Daryl Janmaat was sent off in the 41st minute. The situation dictated a defender coming on for Sissoko, but a midfielder like that of Rolando Aarons will be the expected starter next week against Manchester United if Sissoko is confined to the sidelines.
