Pardew says Newcastle up for Arsenal clash

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says they'll be up for their clash with Arsenal.

Incredibly, just a week after being threatened with relegation to the Championship, United could finish the season as high as 10th.

Reflecting on simply staying up this season, Pardew said: "It was a huge lift, not just for the players, but just as importantly the staff, with us being safe.

"Now we can really focus on one game. We can play without any inhibitions, unlike against Liverpool. That's important.

"We want to win the game for our fans, who have been magnificent."
