Boss Alan Pardew takes charge of his 100th Newcastle Premier League match against West Ham after a difficult week. Pardew watched his side mauled 4-0 at Manchester City on Monday night a matter of hours after Arsenal tabled an unwelcome £10m offer for star French midfielder Yohan Cabaye.
"It's not been the easiest of weeks," said Pardew. "There's been a few agendas in my time as Newcastle manager, but this has certainly been very colourful.
"But it's my hundredth Premier League game in charge of Newcastle this week and I'm very proud of that."
