West Brom boss Pardew 'sweating' on Rondon fitness

West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Pardew is 'sweating' on the fitness of Salomon Rondon.

The Venezuelan forward, who has scored three out of the Baggies derisory season total of 14, went down during the 0-0 draw with Everton on Boxing Day.

"We can't afford to lose players so we are sweating on him a little bit," Pardew added.

"He's been very important since I've been here as well as under Tony [Pulis]. He's a big player.

"But it's difficult to understand why we haven't won that today but we go to the next game.

"It was a sound performance, our fans were brilliant and with us, we thank them."
