More Newcastle Injury Problems For Chelsea
The latest of the Newcastle injury problems is that Cheick Tiote is reported to have picked up an injury in training this week and is struggling for the trip to Stamford Bridge
With Fabricio Coloccini not expected to be ready for the Chelsea match either and Loic Remy suspended, United are likely to turn out well short of their real quality players.
Reports suggest Alan Pardew is hopeful of Yoan Gouffran coming back from injury.
As for Papiss Cisse nobody seems to have a clue following the previous claims of a ‘bad back’ which were then submerged by wide coverage of the fact the club were desperately trying to flog him to Turkey or Russia where the transfer windows end later (Russia up to the end of February).
On the other hand the ‘good’ news is that Gabriel Obertan and Dan Gosling are fit…
If Newcastle have to face Chelsea with no Colo, no Cabaye/Tiote in the middle and no Remy to threaten up front, I think Chelsea may just fancy a bit of revenge for the two goal defeat earlier in the season. Can the stand-ins prove themselves?
