Newcastle new boy Papiss Cisse insisted he felt no pressure when he was thrown straight into the heat of Barclays Premier League battle.
The 26-year-old arrived on Tyneside in a near £10million switch from German side Freiburg last month, but had to wait until Sunday's clash with Aston Villa to make his debut after joining club-mate Demba Ba in the Senegal squad at the African Nations Cup.
And Cisse established himself as an instant hero after coming off the bench to claim the winner with a stunning 71st-minute strike. Asked if he had felt the expectation on his shoulders, he said: "No, not really, not real pressure."
