Pardew lists four reasons for Newcastle United success

6 years ago

Alan Pardew has listed four reasons for Newcastle United’s transformation of fortunes over the last couple of weeks.

The Newcastle manager believing that his players can hurt any team with their pace on the break.

However, Pardew states that the bedrock for Newcastle’s recent wins has been due to what has taken place at the other end.

Great defence, Tim Krul and a determination not to let other teams ‘hurt us’.

Alan Pardew speaking after Liverpool;

“It has been an unbelievable spell for us. The basis of what we have done is great defence, good goalie, not letting teams hurt us and having pace in the team.

“So on the break we will cause anybody problems at whatever level, we have proved that.”

We was always comfortable;

“We pushed for the second (v Liverpool) which was pleasing but we gave up a lot of possession.

“The (Liverpool) back three threw us a little bit and it stopped us imposing ourselves on Liverpool a bit. So they had a lot of possession but we was always comfortable.”
