Cheick Tiote

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote will miss up to three matches with a hamstring injury.

The Ivorian enforcer suffered the injury during training earlier this week and, following a scan, will be sidelined for at least the Magpies' next two fixtures, against Chelsea and Tottenham.

Tiote has made 24 appearances in all competitions this term, captaining United in the absence of Fabricio Coloccini.
