The pressure on Alan Pardew intensified on Monday as Newcastle went down 1-0 at Stoke.

Despite Mike Ashley seemingly giving his backing to the Magpies manager, he’s just 2/5 courtesy of BetVictor to be the next Premier League boss to depart his position.

Pardew’s cause would obviously be helped considerably if he could steer United to a first league win of the campaign but that’s not expected to happen this weekend, bet365 making them odds-on at 17/20 to suffer another defeat, this time at Swansea.

Stan James chalk Newcastle up at 7/2 to break their duck in South Wales, where BetVictor quote the stalemate up at 13/5 and the latter might lure a few punters after Sunderland held the Swans last weekend.

That one was goalless, a result that’s 10/1 at bet365 ahead of this one while offer 4/1 about the teams going in on level terms at the end of each half and Paddy Power post 11/5 against the Magpies in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

Benefiting from a goal start in Ladbrokes’s handicaps, United are available at 10/11 and for sections of the Toon Army confident enough to back their team without assistance, Skybet price Pardew’s men at 11/2 to shade it by a solitary goal at the Liberty Stadium.

Elsewhere, in a fixture that’s 5/6 (Stan James) to produce fewer than three goals, BetVictor chalk Newcastle up at 13/1 to fire the only one and bet365 go 17/2 about the Magpies coming out on top in a close encounter, following a level first 45 minutes.

Stan James finally, rate United at 6/4 to be responsible for the opening goal, which is 7/1 at betway to come from Emmanuel Riviere and they’re 10/3 with William Hill to manage a shutout at the other end.
