Cheik Tiote - Newcastle United Football News

Cheik Tiote has been ruled out of Wednesday night’s game at Blackburn through injury.

Tiote picked up a knee injury in the 1-0 win against Wigan Athletic last weekend and is rated as doubtful for this weekend’s game against Stoke City.

It will be a big miss for us if Cheik is missing for the Stoke game, he has been superb this season – especially in the recent match against Spurs where he broke up the majority of their midfield play.

    He will be a huge miss and that just proves how much we rely on Tiote as the whole team plays better with him on the pitch. This does give players like Abeid and Vuckic to shine though but please not Smith he's way past it.

    when Tiote plays well the whole team plays well and with out him that will be tough to see if we can do well without him because he will be gone for the african cup . id like to see gosling or abaid ( sorry for spelling) on but i agree with the other person smith is usless id rather play tim krul in midfield than smith

    He had a poor game on Saturday. Unusual for him. We need to start preparing a replacement anyway since he will be away for 8 weeks with the african cup of nations.
