Pardew Claims No Reliance On Remy For Newcastle United Goals

Alan Pardew has been keen to claim that the Newcastle United goals aren’t over-reliant on Loic Remy’s contribution.

The last four Premier League matches have seen only four goals and none from Loic Remy.

When asked on what reliance his team have on Remy for goals this is what Alan Pardew had to say;

“We spread it around reasonably well but it would be nice to get goals from all areas of the pitch.

“I don’t think though we are over-reliant on him (Loic Remy), he is just at the pinnacle of our attacks – mainly.

“Being a natural goalscorer he gets the bulk of the chances and he is playing very well, we’ve just got to hope that continues.”

In that last four game run goals from Sissoko, Cabaye and Gouffran (2) have helped Newcastle bring in seven points, though averaging a goal a game would be nowhere near enough going forward.

The previous four United league wins saw Remy score in each of them, while the two before them were almost singlehandely down to Hatem Ben Arfa’s dominant contribution including goals in each of them.

I can’t see this current group of players suddenly increasing their overall goalscoring so United may have to rethink their attacking strategy if opposition clubs have started to get to grips with Remy’s threat.
