Alan Pardew has insisted that all managers in the Premier League are worried that they could be fired.
He told reporters: "I think every Premier League manager fears for his job these days. You have to be on your guard and you have to get results. At the moment, our results need to improve.
"Obviously we are a long way from that at the moment and are thinking of nothing more than the next game. I know that is a cliche, but that is where we are at the moment.
"We should be looking top 10, then fighting for sixth or seventh and higher than that which happened to us once. But that seems a long way off."
