Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew insists that he is not worrying about his side following the 1-0 defeat to Swansea City on Saturday.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has insisted that he has no worries about his side being dragged into the relegation battle.

The Magpies suffered a 1-0 defeat to Swansea City on Saturday and now sit just six points above the Premier League relegation zone.

"I don't worry about this team," Pardew told reporters. "It is strong and it is just disappointing when you don't get anything and that is what our overriding emotion will be after this game.

"But we are a strong side, you can see that. To come here and play as well as we did and boss Swansea in the second half, not many teams can do that. They are a good team and you don't win the League Cup and have the season they are having without being a good side.

"They have great individual players, they are a good unit and a well educated side and we did really well against them and it is galling we did not get anything."

Newcastle now face Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League on Thursday night.
