Papiss Cisse's stunning, swerving strike against Chelsea on Wednesday night has seen the Newcastle United striker listed as favourite for the Premier League's goal of the season.

CISSE V NEWCASTLE

Cisse, 26, has been backed from 6/5 to 11/10 with William Hill to win the Match of the Day Goal of the Season accolade, with current favourite Peter Crouch’s odds drifting from 10/11 to Evens, while Luis Suarez is 6/1 third favourite. Hill are offering 16/1 for anyone other than one of these three winning.

Stoke striker Crouch scored a sensational volley against Manchester City in March at the Britannia Stadium while Uruguayan Suarez executed a world-class 45-yard chip against Norwich to complete a hat-trick at the weekend.

CROUCH V CITY

SUAREZ V NORWICH

Toon goalscorer Cisse's second last night overawed his first goal, a fantastic goal in itself as he teed the ball up with his right foot before smashing a volley past Petr Cech with his left foot.

He will surely beat club team-mate Hatem Ben Arfa to the Newcastle goal of the season. The Frenchman has scored two magnificent solo efforts against Blackburn in the FA Cup and Bolton in the Premier League, but Cisse's lauded technique just shades it.

Robin van Persie has his two Alexandre Song-assisted volleys to throw into the ring. His left-footed efforts against both Merseyside clubs this season are outside bets though.
