As for the result, predictable is probably the word!
It seems Pardew was satisfied with his squad after their terrific run last season and chose not to make any changes. Kind of backfired depth wise since they were hit with so many injuries. Ben Arfa is huge for them and he has been away for much of the season. Cabaye being back is great and with Sissoko beeffing up the mid field attack, they should have a handful of options when Ben Arfa is fit. Tiote will also let the attacking midfielders be more creative. With the squad they have, especially when healthy, they should be in the upper half.
