CHEIK Tiote has been ruled out of Newcastle United’s visit to Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder suffered a hamstring problem in training early this week.

And Tiote, already ruled out of Saturday’s game against Chelsea, is set to have the problem scanned.

The club will await the results of the scan before putting a timescale on his comeback.
