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