Remy will get back in Toon, says Pardew

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is adamant his team has not become overly reliant on Loic Remy’s goals.

Remy will get back in Toon, says Pardew

The 26-year-old France international scored eight times in his first 10 games for the club but has not registered in his last four outings and passed up two glorious opportunities to add to his tally in Saturday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Southampton.

However, with Yoan Gouffran and Moussa Sissoko having fired the Magpies to victory over West Brom and Yohan Cabaye scoring in a long-awaited victory at Manchester United, Pardew believes Remy’s mini-drought is not unduly worrying.

He said: “We spread it around reasonably well, but it would be nice to have goals from all areas of the pitch.

“But I don’t think we are overly reliant on him. He’s just at the pinnacle of our attacks, mainly. Being a natural goalscorer, he gets the bulk of the chances. He is playing well and we have just got to hope that continues.”
