Pardew Happy With Tiote's Replacement

Cheik Tiote is expected to play against Southampton on Sunday, but Alan Pardew was happy he missed the match in the Ukraine on Thursday.

Alan Pardew: “I’ve got a chance to bring in four players fresh.

“When Cheik pulled out an hour before the game (with a virus), I thought to myself ‘when am I going to get some luck in this cup?’. He didn’t feel right.

“My luck’s changed, because Vurnon (Anita) was terrific. Cheik would have done well to have played as well as Vurnon did."
