After Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Moussa Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran made their debuts in a team containing Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy, the ex-Lille star feels Newcastle can start surging up the table.
Cabaye told the Evening Chronicle: “It can work – we are a team.
“Yes, they are coming to England and it is new for them.
“But they start English lessons soon because it’s important. We have to respect English people by being able to talk to them.
"And it’s important for the group. We will help them but they have to learn the language.”
