Alan Pardew has said today that both Newcastle United and Everton have deserved more points from their games this season in the league, before the teams meet this afternoon in the late kick-off game (4:15 pm) and the game will be beamed live on TV around the world.
Alan Pardew – we’ve had terrible terrible injuries
Everton have been hit with injuries recently, as have Newcastle and both sides could be without nine first team players for this game – so at least Newcastle are playing a weakened Everton side.
This is what Alan said today:
“We’ve had similar seasons really.” “We both probably feel as if we deserve more points than we’ve got but we are where we are.”
“We’ve had terrible, terrible injuries which they haven’t suffered.” “I’m hoping 2015 is going to bring us a much better year than this year purely because we’re hopefully going to have more personnel available than I’ve had.”
“It’s been a terrible year for injuries. It’s a fact.”
Over the season luck tends to even itself out, and if we lose games to late goals conceded – like we did last Sunday to Sunderland, then we also win games with late goals too – maybe even today?
Everton are nowhere near the team they were last season, and are even below Newcastle in the league table, being a couple of points and a couple of places behind us in 12th place.
Everton are not playing well at the moment, and in their last six league games they have one win and one draw and four defeats – 4 points from the last 18 played for.
It’s the exact same record that Newcastle have as we also have one win and one draw in the last six league games.
It’s a good opportunity for Newcastle to get our first league win since we hammered Chelsea 2-1 just over three weeks ago. 😀
More fans think we will lose this game than think we’ll win it.
