Tiote was booked for the fifth time on Saturday during the 3-0 win at Crystal Palace but will have a week to recharge ahead of the end of year battle with Arsenal.
Cheick Tiote: “I’m really disappointed. I’m happy also it’s only one week I won’t have to wait for a long time to come back and play again.
“I expect my partners to win the next game.
“We have to do the same things.
“We are a few points behind Liverpool.
“It is not finished yet.
“We have to work hard every game.
“We have two tough games coming, Stoke and Arsenal.
“We need to be ready.”
