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.

Obertan got the result he has been looking for as he set up a beautiful cross for Michael Owen who scored against Wolfsburg Tuesday. It was Obertan's first assist for Manchester United.

Obertan got the ball at the corner of the box and did what he loves to do, run at defenders, and consequentially got a low cross in front of goal which Owen then banged home.

Obertan may secure a starting spot for Manchester United's clash against Besiktas Wednesday evening.

Obertan has proven himself a regular substitute after displacing Nani on the depth chart, but this would be his first major start for the club.
