    Many teams in the EPL will be affected by losing players for possibly 6 weeks during the African Nations Cup.

    Which teams are affected and which players are likely to be called up for there prospective countries?

    I will get the ball rolling with Newcastle who will lose both Cheik Tiot'e (Ivory Coast) and Demba Ba (Senegal)

    These players alone could have serious implications for Newcastle's run in the second half of the season.

    Ivory Coast have quite a few Premiership players. Aside from Tiote, Man City will miss the Toure brothers, Chelsea will miss Kalou and Drogba and the scum will miss Gervinho.

    Morocco have Chamakh from Arsenal and Taarabt from QPR. QPR will also lose Armand Traore to Senegal.
