The midfielder was in fine form as his side drew 2-2 at Anfield.
The Magpies were highly impressive at Anfield as they mounted a spirited second half display to fight back and earn a draw from two goals down.
It could prove to be a crucial point for them in the fight against relegation and will help to build on their confidence following the result against Manchester City in midweek.
Key to their fight back was the performance from their midfield, with Jack Colback bagging one of the goals, and Tiote was an important player in there.
Indeed, he arguably put in his best display in a Newcastle shirt for a number of years.
