Newcastle live updates
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is backing Cheick Tiote to help fill the void left by Yohan Cabaye after seeing him grow in stature in the wake of the Frenchman's departure.
– Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew
He [Tiote] is an important player to us, and the captaincy when Colo (Fabricio Coloccini) was out changed him a little bit.
He knows now that in my mind, he is our vice-captain and he has to play the role that that involves.
It's a big club, so he has a lot of responsibility and he's dealing with it very well. In fact, it's spurred him on.
