Pic Special: Bound For The Bridge

Cheick Tiote did not train on Thursday morning as Newcastle prepared for the weekend's match at high-flying Chelsea.

The Ivorian has suffered a hamstring injury and won't be fit to face Jose Mourinho's side - the latest injury blow to hit Alan Pardew, who is already without skipper Fabricio Coloccini and the suspended Loic Remy for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

However, Papiss Cisse did train - although Pardew admitted that the Senegalese striker's back was still causing him pain.
