Ryan Taylor back in Newcastle United squad; Alan Pardew eyes win v Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League

Alan Pardew

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been speaking to the media ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has confirmed that Ryan Taylor will be part of the squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The 30-year-old versatile player has been on the sidelines since August 2012 after tearing a cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The former England Under-21 international, who can play as a full-back and as a winger, has now recovered from his injury and will be part of the Magpies’ squad that will travel to North London this weekend.

Newcastle are struggling for points at the moment and will head into the contest against Tottenham placed third from bottom.

Pardew’s side have collected just seven points from eight matches, while Spurs will go into the match on the back of a 5-1 hammering of Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League Group C game on Thursday.

However, Pardew is confident that Newcastle can win on Sunday.
