Swansea City v Newcastle United: Can Pardew bring Laudrup back down to Earth?


Bookmark and Share

The Capital One Cup winners get back to league action this afternoon and Michael Laudrup will be hoping his heroes will not suffering a cup hangover, as Newcastle United will be gunning for all three points.

The Swans made no mistake in the final last Sunday against Bradford City to cap their centenary year in style and they will be hoping to end the season on a high. With a place in Europe already secured, the players will all be hoping to cement their places in Laudrup's team for next season.

Newcastle United meanwhile have survived their brief flirt with the drop and start the day in 13th place. A win here, combined with the right results elsewhere could see them climb into the top half. What a turnaround that would be by Alan Pardew and co. Although most of the credit must go to his chief scout who has cherry picked some great players from France who have had an immediate impact.

Newcastle ran out 2-0 winners at the Liberty Stadium last season and haven't lost there since 1980. Can they keep that run going or will the Swans turn on the style and win their 10th league game of the campaign? Our pundits have their say.
