The 24-year-old joined the Magpies last January alongside Yoan Gouffran, Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Massadio Haidara, but they could not participate in the FA Cup as the Premier League outfit had already been beaten by Brighton & Hove Albion in the third round.
Alan Pardew's side will meet Cardiff City at St James' Park at the same stage on Saturday and Sissoko insists that this time he and his team-mates do not want to slip up.
"The FA Cup is very important to us," the Daily Express quotes him as saying.
"Those of us who arrived last January never got the chance to play in the competition.
"We are looking to do much better this year. For the players and the club, the cup is an important chance to achieve something special.
"We will certainly be giving our maximum and if we could win the cup it would be absolutely amazing.
"Because of our position in the league, we can really give the cup everything we have got."
