Alan Pardew says Newcastle 'can beat anybody' despite Fulham defeat

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew insists his side "can beat anybody" despite losing 2-1 to Fulham on Monday.

Hatem Ben Arfa equalised for the Magpies with a dipping strike - but Hugo Rodallega's header nine minutes later ensured Newcastle remain only five points clear of the drop zone.

Pardew says Fulham's winner was a "poor goal" to concede, but is pleased at Ben Arfa's return from injury.
