With Cheick Tiote away to play for Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup of Nations, Vurnon Anita looks poised to earn his third straight start for Newcastle United when they travel to Hull City next.
Anita has been partnering Jack Colback as central defensive midfielders for the Magpies lately, and while Colback has been one of the pleasant surprises of the fantasy season, Anita offers very little in production. His only redeeming quality in comparison to Tiote is that he is not nearly as prone to being carded, but he will also come nowhere near Tiote's numbers when it comes to winning tackles.
