Newcastle's January signing Moussa Sissoko claims he still hasn't shown his best work for the north eastern club yet, after the midfielder scored on his home debut to take the Toon to a spectacular win over Chelsea.
Newcastle United's Moussa Sissoko celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal against Chelsea.
Alan Pardew's men went into the match against the Blues as clear underdogs, and after Frank Lampard and Juan Mata took the score to 2-1 in the second half, Chelsea appeared to be in a dominant position.
But Sissoko, who was one of a host of signings to join Newcastle in their desperate bid to stay out of the relegation zone this season, scored a brace to gift the Toon a surprise win over Chelsea, who are now 16 points behind title leaders Manchester United.
And the France international says he wants to improve on his match winning performance for the side, and continue to prove his worth to Pardew as the season hits the business end.
"I am very happy, but we can't forget the fact that this was a team performance," he told Sky Sports. "The team worked together. I played well, but it was a team effort.
"We came away with three points as a team and I hope we can go away and continue to perform like that to climb up the Premier League as high as we possibly can.
"I gave 100 per cent, the very best I could. I was signed to do that, to give everything to fight from the first to the 90th minute.
"That's what I tried to do, even though it's not always easy. I went out there from the very first minute until the very last minute and worked as hard as I could."
Sissoko also credited the town of Newcastle with helping him to adapt to life in England, saying: "I'm settling in really well. When I am not training, I walk around the city and the supporters will come over and ask me for an autograph, and it makes me feel fantastic when that happens."
