The West Bromwich Albion manager will be hoping to have a big impact at the Hawthorns.
Baggies ace Jake Livermore spoke exclusively to the Express & Star, and shared the target that new manager Alan Pardew has given his players for the season, highlighting how he is hoping that Pardew will have an immediate impact at the Hawthorns.
West Brom currently sit precariously in 17th position in the Premier League table, just three points clear of the relegation zone, after their paltry return of just 13 points form their opening 15 league outings.
Things don't get any easier for the Black Country outfit either, with games against Liverpool and Manchester United on the horizon.
Livermore, who has appeared in all but one of the Baggies' 15 Premier League games this season, spoke exclusively to the Express & Star, opening up on the ambitious target set by Pardew for the remainder of the campaign:
West Brom's Jake Livermore in action
"We’re hoping that’s what can happen for us. We need nine wins now. We’ve looked at the fixtures and we think we can definitely do that.”
Next up for West Brom is a crucial trip to Wales to take on Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday, and with the tough fixtures that lie ahead, it will be vital for Pardew's men to pick up all three points at the Liberty Stadium.
