Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew believes that injuries are costing his side after they went down to their fifth defeat in seven games at the hands of Chelsea.

During the 3-0 defeat, the Toon Army suffered yet another injury, with Mathieu Debuchy picking up a knock that could well rule him out of Newcastle's clash with Tottenham on Wednesday.

Pardew explained that Papiss Cisse may be back in time for the game against Spurs, but he remained coy on guaranteeing his return.

"I thought we played really well with the players that we had available. The work rate of Chelsea was phenomenal for a team with the technical ability they have," Pardew told GiveMeSport.

"I do think our injuries have impacted upon the recent results we have had. We got another one today with Mathieu Debuchy getting injured. He's got a kick in the calf, and I think it will stop him playing on Wednesday night.

"He's a big player for us. We have also got Papiss [Cisse], Loic [Remy] out, and Fabricio Coloccini out. We need those players back, especially for games at this level.

"I'm not so sure if Papiss will be back for the Tottenham game. He's obviously a player that we need. Cheick Tiote may be back, we'll have to see."
