Pardew eyes City win

Alan Pardew has urged his Newcastle side to go out and attack Premier League champions Manchester City when they visit St James' Park on Saturday.

• Blog: How does Pardew stack up?

The Magpies have struggled with injuries and the added demand of Europa League action this season and currently find themselves just two points above the bottom three in the league table after the 2-1 defeat against Fulham on Monday.

With tough away games against, Arsenal, and Manchester United to come in December, Pardew is targeting two wins from the home games against City and Queens Park Rangers.

"We have to keep an eye on where we are," he said. "It is difficult to get points at the minute. We're a side that on its day can beat anybody. We look more like a team. In the last three games the level has improved but unfortunately we need to get results.

"We've got the Man City and QPR games - they loom large. There's no reason why we can't win both of those. We've got to go and attack Man City. If we play at that level in the second half at Fulham, we've got a chance."

With Pardew set to lose Cheick Tiote and Shola Ameobi for the African Cup of Nations in January there has been speculation over whether Newcastle will enter the transfer market in order to reinforce their squad.

But the former West Ham manager expects little change to the personnel he already has available to him.

"Until such time, that is the team" he said. "I thought it looked a good team at Fulham. We were just a bit unfortunate not to get anything from the game. I don't think so – I think that's the group between now and mid-January, when maybe Steven [Taylor] and Cabaye will come back to us."
