Pardew rues missed chance

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was left to lament Moussa Sissoko's missed opportunity after seeing his side go down 3-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard was the star of the show for Chelsea as he netted a hat-trick to condemn Newcastle to a second successive 3-0 defeat in a week.

But it could have been different had Sissoko converted Newcastle's best goalscoring opportunity at 1-0 down and his failure to find the net was compounded by Chelsea scoring their second goal almost immediately after Petr Cech's save from the Newcastle midfielder.

"For part of the first half I thought we played very well and we had a fantastic chance at 1-0 but unfortunately we missed it and then they went down the other end and scored again," said Pardew.

"There were a few positives. Sammy Ameobi did well and Luuk de Jong gave the type of performance that in the next 13 games I think will be important for us."

Pardew was disappointed with defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa after his needless foul on Samuel Eto'o gifted Chelsea a penalty from which Hazard scored his third goal of the game.

"I'm a little bit disappointed. I don't know why he's grabbed him like that. It was a really soft goal," added Pardew.

The Magpies boss admitted his side struggled to contain the in-form Hazard, describing the Belgian's performance as "excellent."

"He's at the top of his game. His work rate and everything about him today was excellent."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
