Pardew Confirms Five Players To Miss Fulham

9 years ago

At today’s pre-match press conference for the Fulham match on Sunday, Alan Pardew has confirmed that five first team players will miss the game through injury.

A crucial match both in terms of Premier League safety and setting United up for the Europa League game on Thursday.

The manager has confirmed that Mathieu Debuchy, Fabricio Coloccini, Hatem Ben Arfa, Massadio Haidara and Cheick Tiote will all miss.

This is what he had to say about the situation;

“So we are missing four or five really big players, which we have done all year if I’m honest, with the injuries we have had one way or another.

But I still think we have a good side to put on the pitch tomorrow.”

When asked whether this left him short of room to manoeuvre, Alan Pardew replied;

“I think that is fair to say but at this stage of the season and the positions we are in, in both competitions, we need to play our best team and I’ll play my best team on Sunday regardless of resting anybody.”
