Pardew plans to roll the dice against Chelsea

Alan Pardew

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew intends to take a risky approach against Chelsea this weekend.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew seems to be subscribing to the notion that fortune favours the brave. 

The Magpies boss feels that the team learned a tough lesson on Tuesday night during their 1-1 draw against Burnley because they played with a lack of adventure. 

Newcastle seemed afraid of losing at Turf Moor and Pardew insists that they must no longer be fearful during matches. 

"This is a new team. We learned a lesson at Burnley, that you have to put the ball at risk," he said to London24.

‘If you’re not going to take risks and make forward runs, and threaten the opposition, you will get beat."

To show the attacking ambition that Pardew is demanding in their next match could be a tough ask for the squad, though.

Newcastle take on Chelsea this weekend and they will need to put in their best display of the season if they are to pick up any points.

Jose Mourinho's side have remained unbeaten in all competitions so far this campaign and look the strongest team in the country.

Blessed with great attacking flair and a solid defence, there are few weaknesses in the Chelsea squad and it will be very tough for Pardew's men to get anything from the fixture.

However, it seems Newcastle will be encouraged to play with no fear and they will be hoping that this attacking approach can help them pull off a shock victory.
