Pardew - I fear losing Evans

Pardew - I fear losing Evans

The former Manchester United defender was the subject of continual interest from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the summer, and City have maintained their pursuit going into the January transfer window despite the move breaking down in August.

"So your best players are always vulnerable".

Alan Pardew says he is encouraged by what he saw from a West Brom side not playing at full strength in his debut with the club.

"I'm never confident when you've got great players because other clubs want great players", said Pardew.

"Jonny Evans is certainly one of them, and he's our captain".

West Brom are also likely to pull out all the stops to keep their man as they aim to pull away from a relegation battle. Of course not. Do I fear losing him?

"Jonny's dealt with it in his way. Of course I do". He was terrific for me against Crystal Palace [Pardew's first game in charge, which ended 0-0].

The Baggies have not won a Premier League match since the 1-0 triumph over Burnley on August 19 and their awful run of form has seen the club slip to 17th in the table, just three points above the relegation zone.

Saturday's clash at the Liberty Stadium against bottom-of-the-table Swansea is absolutely massive for both sides and Pardew is eyeing all three points. "We need to turn up on Saturday afternoon and we need to win the game". The defender could move to Manchester City and potentially win another Premier League title or make a move that could see him play in the Championship next season. We need to win at least nine games.
