Cisse wonder goal is NOT the best of the season, according to bookies

Papiss Cisse’s miraculous strike for Newcastle against Chelsea is being talked about as one of the greatest goals in Premier League history.

But one bookmaker reckons it won’t even be good enough to win goal of the season.

According to William Hill, Cisse is not at the top of the betting for this year’s Match of the Day Goal of the Season.

Peter Crouch’s effort for Stoke against Manchester City is the 10/11 favourite, followed by Cisse’s second effort at Stamford Bridge at 6/5. Luis Suarez’s strike from the halfway line against Norwich is the 6/1 third favourite - followed by any other goal at 16/1.

“It looks like it will be a two horse race for the goal of the season honour and we think it could still go either way,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
