Alan Pardew Reveals At Least Two First Team Squad Members Will Miss Hull

8 years ago

Just when it looked as though United were heading for a clean bill of health, Alan Pardew has been hit by two bits of bad news.

At today’s pre-match press conference for Saturday’s match against Hull, the manager has confirmed Jonas Gutierrez will once again be missing.

However, Pardew also revealed that Steven Taylor has picked up a knock and is likely to miss at least the next couple of games.

While neither were likely to make it into the starting eleven, the two of them leave a sizeable gap on the bench and remind us all once again of the vulnerability of Newcastle’s squad in terms of numbers.

Taylor did himself no favours with his Manchester City sending off and Mapou’s decent form has further impacted on Taylor’s chances.

Jonas though is a big miss in my opinion on the bench as he covers so many positions and still has a big role to play this season, even if it isn’t as an automatic first choice.
