Obertan picked up a knock in Saturday's match against Liverpool and had to be subbed off in the 27th minute.

Obertan has been starting in place of the ineffective Remy Cabella, but it was youngster Rolando Aarons who replaced him, and he could very well keep that role if Obertan has to miss any time.

Obertan has vowed to continue proving himself to the club and fans after overcoming an exile at Newcastle by making his first home start in two seasons and scoring in the process, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder has been on the outskirts of Newcastle's squad for some time, but came back to earn some attention against Leicester. He said he would continue ignoring the critics and continue working on resurrecting his career.

Obertan got the start and scored in Newcastle's 1-0 win over Leicester on Saturday.

Obertan now has a goal and an assist on the season and looks to have moved closer to securing his spot in the starting XI. With consistent playing time, Obertan could do enough over a full season to warrant a bench spot on fantasy rosters.

Obertan could get his first start of the season in place of Remy Cabella on Saturday against Swansea City, Chronicle Live reports.

Cabella has been quite disappointing since moving over from Ligue 1 side Lille this summer, as he's still looking for his first goal after six starts. Obertan has made only two appearances off the bench in Premier League matches this season, and there is little reason to believe the 25-year-old will explode in his first start, if he even gets it.

Reports say that Obertan left the Newcastle ground after being told he would not be part of the fixture against Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.

Rumors about the midfielder searching for a new team this winter have already surfaced, and walking out on the team before a match won't anything to reduce that speculation. Obertan has yet to make a Premier League start for the team this season.

Obertan's stoppage time goal finished off a stubborn Blackburn squad in their 2-0 victory at Ewood Park on Wednesday. Newcastle moves into fifth place in the Premier League with the win.

Obertan never saw much of the pitch with Manchester United, but hopes to continue to take advantage of his chances as he plays in important Premier League matches with Newcastle United.

Obertan has signed a five-year contract with Newcastle, leaving Manchester United.

Obertan was with United for two years, but rarely saw playing time. He is filled with skill, and should mature into a valuable winger with more playing time at Newcastle.
