Pardew Leaves Ben Arfa Out At Cardiff

8 years ago

Cardiff City v Newcastle United
Saturday 5 October 2013 3pm

After two poor Premier League results and performances, Alan Pardew has made changes both in his team and in his formation by the looks of it.

With the manager desperate to avoid successive defeats turning into something far more serious, he has looked to inject some fresh impetus into his team.

While Mapou replaced by Williamson was expected and I guessed correctly Anita would be edged out and Tiote keep his place, not many would have thought Cisse would be back at the expense of Ben Arfa.

It is a big call by Alan Pardew and in many fans’ eyes possibly a make or break decision.

Lining up against Cardiff are;

Krul, Debuchy, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon, Sissoko, Tiote, Cabaye, Gouffran, Cisse, Remy

While on the bench we have Ben Arfa and Anita included in the following seven;

Elliot, Dummett, Mapou, Anita, Ben Arfa, Sammy Ameobi, Jonas

While for Cardiff, not many Newcastle fans will be upset to see Craig Bellamy starting from the bench.
