The Newcastle injuries situation, when we’ll see these 10 players back training and playing:

Cheick Tiote – Picked up a bad knee injury at the African Cup of Nations and after an operation in Qatar, we won’t see him back playing (if at all…) at Newcastle until next season

Curtis Good – Injury nightmare continues and it will be next season at the earliest before he plays again, after breaking down following a recent reserve team comeback.

Facundo Ferreyra – After a claimed back injury, supposed to be back in training before the end of March – though we’ll believe it when we see it.

Massadio Haidara – Stretchered off with a knee problem against Aston Villa, fluid on the knee will prevent him playing against Manchester United but expected to be training again shortly and available for Everton on 15 March.

Paul Dummett – Another who won’t be back playing competitively until next season, having hurt his knee when appearing as a sub at Palace last month.

Remy Cabella – Will miss Manchester United with knee ligament problem but hoping to be back training at start of next week.

Rob Elliot – Back in training early next week after thigh injury.

Rolando Aarons – Carver says out for’ another 7-10 days’ which puts him back in training towards end of next week before the Everton match a week on Sunday.

Siem de Jong – A reoccurrence of his collapsed lung and subsequent operation means it will be next season before he is playing competitively.

Steven Taylor – Won’t play until next season after calf injury v Burnley on New Year’s Day
