CHEIK TIOTE returns to Newcastle United's starting line-up for this afternoon's Premier League game with Arsenal.

Tiote missed the Boxing Day win over Stoke City through suspension, but is restored to Alan Pardew's side today.

Tiote will play alongside Vurnon Anita at the base of midfield, with Yohan Cabaye pushed into a more prominent attacking position.

Subs: Fabianski (gk), Jenkinson, Miyaichi, Gnabry, Arteta, Podolski, Bendtner.
