Ben Arfa labels Cisse as best Newcastle striker

Newcastle playmaker Hatem Ben Arfa has labelled Papiss Cisse as the best striker that he has ever played with, ahead of fellow Senegalese striker Demba Ba and Andy Carroll.

Cisse has taken the Premier League by storm since arriving from Freiburg in January, scoring seven goals in four games. 

"Papiss is showing very good form and if he keeps it going I could probably say he's the best striker I've played with," said Ben Arfa.

"He scored two amazing goals against Swansea. He's just brilliant. He scores a lot of goals and is very good for us. Hopefully, he can continue this form until the end of the season.

"Demba is amazing as well, and he worked very hard on the left (on Friday). We have two very good strikers and that's why we win.

"Having two such strikers gives us very good confidence. We know they can score in every game, at any moment."
