WIN or your Champions League dream is over.

That is Alan Pardew’s warning to his Newcastle United players ahead of tonight’s match at in-form Arsenal.

“The Champions League is over for us if we don’t win in my view,” he said.

“I don’t think tonight is a game that is going to decide our Europa League fate, the next 10 games will do that.

“But this one is about the Champions League. If we win, we are going to be throwing our names in the hat.”
