Alan Pardew: "We know we've got some business to do and the next nine days are very important to this football club.

"I'm still fighting and I'm determined to make a success of this season for our fans.

"One thing Hatem showed today and against Manchester City is his hamstring is fine and he's still got that burst of pace.

"I was pleased with his commitment, and that bodes well for us."
