Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp felt Newcastle United missed skipper Fabricio Coloccini for yesterday's defeat to Manchester United.

He wrote in the Daily Mail: "Newcastle minus Fabricio Coloccini spells trouble. They miss their goalkeeper Tim Krul, but it is the absence of Coloccini that causes them more problems. They play rivals Sunderland next and will be desperate for his return after sloppy defending cost them against a vibrant Manchester United."
