West Bromwich Albion midfielder Jake Livermore has revealed that there is no “panic” at club following the arrival of Alan Pardew as the players believe that they can adapt to the style of the manager quickly to avoid relegation, as reported by the Express and Star.
The club sacked Tony Pulis and appointed Pardew as his replacement and the manager drew his first game in charge this weekend.
The Baggies will feel that they deserved all three points against Crystal Palace, who had goalkeeper Julian Speroni to thank for numerous saves to earn the draw.
Pardew will be encouraged by the performance of his side and Livermore says that the players are at ease with the new boss.
It’s not panic stations just yet, we’ve got some great players in the dressing room.And some great staff as well. Collectively we’ve definitely got enough to get ourselves up the league.
Naturally when a manager comes in it shakes things up. It’s a clean slate for everyone. It was a positive outcome bar the three points. Himself and John Carver have stressed they want us to play. That’s his style and that’s what we’ll adapt to.
Pardew only had two full days to work with his new players before the game but it was clear to see that the new manager had been trying to put his stamp on the squad already.
They are currently 17th placed in the league table and are only three points away from the relegation zone.
