Newcastle boss Pardew: Obertan has nothing to prove at Man Utd

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew insist Gabriel Obertan has nothing to prove at Manchester United tonight.

Obertan will start in the Capital One Cup tie.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "He's got nothing to prove - he's still a young player.

"Just because of his size you think he's 26 or 27 - he's still young (23) and learning his trade. He was good pre-season and he's itching to play. He will definitely start."
