It was reported that Papiss Cisse suffered a rib injury in the 2nd leg quarter final match in the Europa League against Benfica.
A rib injury which was well documented to be a cracked rib.
Well, after a quick trip to France to see a specialist in order to see about playing with this injury, it was feared that his season was over but after taking part in training yesterday, it's now reported that he's fine to play on.
Losing him would have been a catastrophic blow based on the utter shambles not to replace Demba Ba after his sale and hopefully all lessons learned this season wont happen again with Mike Ashley reaffirming his desire to achieve great things here a must if we are to progress.
In the meantime though, Cisse has been on fire with a good scoring run recently and hopefully this continues with Liverpool on Saturday coming to St James' Park.
We need a fully fit Cisse to banish the worries once and for all.
