Alan Pardew insists that Newcastle United have enough strength and depth to cope with both the Premier League and the Europa League.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has insisted that he has enough depth in his squad to cope with the demands of the Premier League and the Europa League.

The Magpies are into the final 16 of the second-tiered European competition, while they sit six points away from relegation in the league table.

"I've never really analysed it," The Chronicle quotes Pardew as saying. "I've always tried to attack it. Obviously I've got to change personnel. But now we've got the quality and depth to do it."

The North-East outfit are preparing to take on Swansea City this Saturday.
