Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew insisted his players let the fans down after witnessing his side beaten 3-0 at Arsenal on Monday night, The Guardian has revealed.

Defeat at the Emirates meant the Magpies have lost their past six fixtures in the league, with travelling fans last night, displaying banners calling for their boss to go.

Speaking after the game, Pardew, who had received similar ‘abuse’ away at Stoke, acknowledged the fans unhappiness at his side’s recent displays.

He said: “They're frustrated. We had 2,000 here tonight making this long, long trip. Although we're playing a good team, they still expect us to win.

"They've seen us lose again and they're not happy, and I have to respect that. But all I can do is do this job to the best of my ability. We've been top 10 all year.

“We should have performed better in this run, I know, and we've got to finish in the top 10. If Cardiff think it's important for them on Saturday, it's important for us to finish in the top 10, too, believe me" he added.

Arsenal took the lead through Laurent Koscielny who poked home a Santi Cazrola free-kick, before Mesut Ozil swept home into an open goal after Tim Krul had twice denied Olivier Giroud.

The Gunners added a a third late from Giroud who headed past the despairing Krul.

Newcastle who currently sit in ninth face relegation threatened Cardiff City this weekend before travelling to Liverpool on the final day of the season.

Meanwhile victory for Arsenal means a win at home to West Brom this weekend will secure the final Champions League qualification ahead of Everton who sit in fifth.
