Cabaye has not yet featured this season after a failed £10million bid from Arsenal that Pardew suggested had turned his playmaker's head.

The Gunners have yet to return with an improved offer but, despite admitting the France international could still leave before the transfer window closes on 2 September, Pardew expects him to turn out against Fulham.

"What I have said to Yohan Cabaye is I expect him to play this weekend," Pardew told reporters ahead of Saturday's visit of Martin Jol's side.

"Until another bid comes in from Arsenal that is accepted or not that will be the situation."

Pardew has dodged claims that Cabaye refused to play against Manchester City and West Ham but has been angered by a situation that has undermined his plans for the new term.

"It is quite simple - we need to resolve the situation," he said after a goalless draw against the Hammers.

"We need to get ourselves in a position where if he stays, great, and if he doesn't stay we need to get someone equally as good.

"It's difficult at the moment. We have big clubs filling our players with disharmony."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
