Alan Pardew: "I have seen that we had a punch up in the press. It's an absolute load of rubbish. He came and shook my hand at the end and that was it.

"You have to be resilient in the modern day. We have lost half the Premier League managers this year - we might even lose another four or five in the summer.

"It is sometimes a thankless task. It was difficult today, I'll make no bones about that."
