Alan Pardew has talked about the game tonight at the Emirates, and the good news is that Newcastle should be able to play their strongest team for almost a couple of months, with Mathieu Debuchy, Loic Remy and Moussa Sissoko all expected to start the game.
Alan Pardew – they have their best players back too
Both Stoke City and Crystal Palace, the two sides behind Newcastle in the league in 10th and 11th place both lost over the weekend, and now they have only two games to play, and Stoke are 3 points behind us and Palace 3 points behind us.
We’d love to think we can get something out of this game tonight, but 89% of fans in our poll think we will lose this game.
This is what Alan said today:
“Although we’ve got the return of our best players, so have they – Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla.”
“They’ve got Champions League qualification and a cup final to come.”
“We’ve got it all to do, but we know in the short-term for this club, a result is very important.”
“The sooner it comes, the better.”
Arsenal are fighting for 4th place, and they are one point ahead of Everton, who were beaten 2-0 at Southampton on Saturday, so they could go 4 points clear with a win and only two games to play.
Newcastle could suffer a 6th defeat in a row in the Premier League, and that would be the first time that’s happened at Newcastle.
But we cannot see us getting anything out of this game, with Arsenal fielding a very strong side that can score goals.
What do you think?
