Newcastle's Pardew imagining Man Utd recoil

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is of the belief that Manchester United will swiftly respond to Wednesday night's 1-0 loss to Everton when they return to action this weekend.

David Moyes' Red Devils saw their winless run in the Premier League stretch to three games when beaten by his former club at Old Trafford midweek and Saturday's opponent Pardew is banking on a heavy reaction.

"Every game is up for grabs this year and I think there'll be a reaction from Manchester United to their defeat and likewise from us," Pardew said in the wake of his side's 3-0 loss at Swansea City.

"It'll make for a game that is quite pressurised and therefore we need to have calm heads and hopefully we can retain the ball better than we did at Swansea.

"[United] had gone 12 games unbeaten up until that game so it's not like there is a crisis there. They've lost a game, which anybody can do in the Premiership at the moment.

"Their reaction is going to be a little bit larger than ours."
