Cheick Tiote is leading our poll for Newcastle’s best player against Liverpool, and Cheick must have had one of his best games ever for Newcastle, and if that’s the effect that captain has on the Ivorian, then he should now be the permanent vice captain to Fabricio Coloccini.
Cheick Tiote - played great yesterday
The top four players at the moment in the poll are Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy and Paul Dummett, and of course they all had good games as did Yoan Gouffran and Mike Williamson who are next in line.
Newcastle players worked their socks off yesterday, and showed resilience, spirit and courage in that second half with just 10 men, and to hold a strong Liverpool side and come away with a point was simply excellent.
We thought a point would be a great result before the game, but to get it after we had Mapou sent off just before half time was even better.
We are proud of all of our players yesterday.
