At his press conference yesterday for the game against Arsenal tomorrow afternoon, Alan Pardew said that Cheick Tiote will come straight back into the side tomorrow, after missing the game against Stoke due to a one match suspension, so the big question is what will the team be, and who will be left out of the side for tomorrow’s game.
Cheick Tiote – will start tomorrow
On Saturday Pardew brought in Hatem Ben Arfa in place of Tiote, for the Frenchman’s first start for a long time, and he put in a great performance of attacking play and showed tremendous skill, and the 26 year-old was easily our Man of the Match with a massive 74% of the vote.
This is some of what Alan Pardew said in his press conference yesterday:
“Cheick’s a tough cookie to replace, and he’ll come back into the team for Arsenal, for sure,” “He’ll play against Arsenal, I make no bones about that.”
It could be the unlucky Dutchman Vurnon Anita who could again miss out, and even Ben Arfa may not get a starting place, but the Frenchman is bound to play some part in the game tomorrow, he’s in such sparkling and match-winning form at the moment.
So it’s a toss-up as to which team Pardew will start tomorrow, and whether he will play in a 4-3-3 or a 4-4-2 formation against the Gunners – but we can be sure Newcastle will be attacking Arsenal tomorrow in a sold-out St. James’ Park.
What do you think the team will be for tomorrow’s game?
