Newcastle boss Pardew ready to hand Ben Arfa extended chance

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says Hatem Ben Arfa will get his chance in Demba Ba's absence.

Pardew insists he will get his chance and has challenged him to show exactly why he should be in the team when he does.

The 50-year-old said: "He will get an opportunity, and we will try to play to his strengths.

"I have said before many times, he has a special talent. We need to see more of it."
