CHEIK Tiote has been added to Newcastle United’s injured list – but Alan Pardew hopes to have THREE players back for Tottenhamn Hotspur

Sammy Ameobi, Mike Williamson and Emmanuel Riviere could be available for Saturday’s game visit to White Hart Lane.

Tiote limped out of the prolonged warm-up for yesterday’s delayed game against Leicester City, which Newcastle won 1-0 thanks to a Gabriel Obertan goal.

However, Ameobi, Williamson and Riviere are all expected to return to training this week.

“Losing Sammy Ameobi, Willo and Manu were blows to us, but hopefully all of those will train this week,” said Pardew.

Meanwhile, long-term absentee Ryan Taylor was set to play in tomorrow afternoon’s Under-21 Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion.

The behind-closed-doors fixture is being staged at the club’s training ground.
