Alan Pardew confirmed via Twitter that as long as Cheik Tiote has not had any setbacks during the international break, the defensive midfielder will be in the squad this weekend when Newcastle travel to Southampton.
Tiote may just be eased back with a bench role this weekend, but he is never a legitimate option in fantasy when starting, unless your league rewards yellow cards. It will help the Magpies in reality though as Tiote provides a necessary physical presence in the center of the pitch. Jack Colback, another defensive mid with a little more fantasy appeal, is also returning to fitness and should be available to Alan Pardew this coming weekend. Sep 11 - 8:52 PM
