Arsenal should fear Newcastle, insists Alan Pardew
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says Arsenal should fear the Magpies ahead of their clash on Sunday
Alan Pardew insists Arsenal should fear Newcastle United ahead of their clash at St James’ Park on Sunday.
The Magpies are currently unbeaten in their last six Premier League games after a 5-1 victory over Stoke City on Boxing Day.
I think they will be as fearful of us as we are of them
And Pardew vowed Newcastle wouldn’t change their approach to the clash despite Arsenal being the current Premier League leaders.
“Yes they are, but so are we and I think they will be as fearful of us as we are of them,” Pardew said.
“We are at home and we will be expected by our fans to win the game.
“We are looking forward to Arsenal as we have a lot of confidence. The spirit is very high and the team is working hard together. That’s why we are going the right way.
“Arsenal are fighting to win the league. It’s good, because we have played well against big teams.
“We try to play a similar way – we want to play good football. I think it’s going to be a nice game to watch.”
