Newcastle's Pardew not too perturbed despite heavy loss

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was not too worried about copping a 4-0 defeat on opening weekend of the Premier League season.

The Toon were brushed aside by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium but Pardew feels it will be a much more improved showing when his team hosts his old club West Ham United this Saturday.

"I don't think we've got too much to be concerned about," he told Sky Sports.

"We need to put a team out that's a lot more offensive at home, and we won't have that kind of opposition, although West Ham are in good shape.

"It's one out of 38 games, and it's important we try and win the two home games that are coming up."
