Newcastle’s pursuit of Champions League qualification was boosted by a fifth successive win on Monday as Tottenham’s grip on fourth place was loosened by a surprise home loss.

Newcastle striker, Papiss Cisse’s 10th goal in nine appearances since joining the club rounded off a 2-0 victory over Bolton after Hatem Ben Arfa had scored the opener.

The win lifted the Magpies to fifth place, behind Tottenham on goal difference after the London club lost 2-1 to Norwich.

Anthony Pilkington and Elliott Bennett scored for Norwich, which rose to ninth.

Chelsea could go above Tottenham and Newcastle and into the fourth Champions League place with a victory at Fulham later Monday.

Also, Everton thrashed Sunderland 4-0.
