Pardew Rates Star 50/50 For Anfield
Demba Ba is rated a toss of the coin to be involved as Alan Pardew told the Chronicle;
“I think he’s (Demba Ba) 50/50 at best. We’ve got Papiss back on the goal trail and Shola & Sammy so we’re happy with that.
Papiss is fit and well and we are looking forward to seeing him this weekend”.
As always you can trust the manager to find positives in a situation where you are likely to be without the player who has scored the lion’s share of the goals this season.
Though of course it does emphasise the strength in depth needed, especially up front.
If Ba ends up being available on Sunday but not 100%, it wouldn’t be the biggest surprise in the world to see Alan Pardew go with just Cisse as his out an d out goalscorer, with Demba Ba on the bench if needed.
