Carver wants more consistency from Cabella.

Newcastle United care taker manager John Carver asks for more consistency from former Montpellier forward Remy Cabella after his impressive display against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Magpies lost 2-0 to Jose Mourinho's side but Newcastle were the better side in the first half of the Premier League clash.

However, 24-year-old Cabella caused the West London side plenty of problems and Carver hopes the French international can be more lethal on a regular basis for Newcastle.

"Remy Cabella, who has been a little bit frustrating, showed his value," Carver told reporters.

"He was outstanding in possession and every time he tried to break someone was clipping him to stop the momentum of play.

"He added the other side of the game, the hard work, and he stuck to the gameplan.

"I worried towards the end of the game because he did fatigue and that's obvious because he's not used to playing 90 minutes.

"He's now set a standard and I told him in front of everyone that it's no good just doing that on a one-off basis.

"If you're not prepared to do that every week you'll be sitting with me and Stoney [coach Steve Stone]. That's what I told him in front of everyone.

"If he performs like that, he could actually get our fans on the edge of their seats because he had me on the edge of mine."
