Newcastle will not lose strikers Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse to the Africa Cup of Nations in January after it was confirmed that Senegal have been disqualified from the competition.
The decision was made after rioting broke out during Senegal's home tie with the Ivory Coast on Saturday.
The game was called off with the visitors leading 2-0 and 6-2 on aggregate, meaning that Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote will travel to South Africa with the Ivory Coast for next year's tournament.
He could miss up to four Premier League matches, including games against Chelsea and Tottenham in February.
The decision to award the visitors a penalty in the 76th minute, which Didier Drogba converted after his opener, sparked the crowd trouble.
Manchester City, who had brothers Yaya and Kolo Toure in action alongside Drogba, said on their official website: "City's Yaya and Kolo Toure are both safe after crowd trouble halted play as Senegal hosted the Ivory Coast in Dakar.
"Disturbances broke out as Didier Drogba put the Elephants 2-0 up, after what was deemed a controversial penalty decision in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
"Fires were started in the stands at Stade Leopold Senghor and missiles were launched on to the pitch before the players were escorted to safety.
"Yaya and Kolo were both involved in the second leg clash and early reports suggest the brothers are unharmed."
Arsenal could also lose Ivorian forward Gervinho to international duty at the tournament in South Africa and Wigan could be without striker Arouna Kone.
