Match highlights of the 2-0 victory over Bolton for you all to enjoy now, featuring a very special goal from Hatem Ben Arfa!
We are now clear in 5th place in the league following the 1-1 draw between Fulham and Chelsea, meaning that guaranteed Europa League football is now in our own hands. We’re also level on points with 4th placed Tottenham which gives an altogether different, and more financially rewarding, position to aim for.
However Alan Pardew urged his players to not get carried away in his post match interview. He also had special praise for Hatem Ben Arfa and backed him to make the France squad for the forthcoming European Championships.
Meanwhile Owen Coyle was left to bemoan the goal by Papiss Cisse, which he feels was offside and stopped his side from getting back into the game in his post match interview, although he was heartened by the performance of his side.
Five wins on the bounce eh? Who would have thought that a few weeks back?
