Alan Pardew: "Today was a key game because the two fixtures we had, Arsenal and Spurs, were difficult.

"But this game now compounds that and we have to lick our wounds and prepare quickly for Manchester United.

"We have a tough run of games - we knew that - over this period, and this was always going to be a critical fixture, so losing it is very disappointing.

"We still find ourselves in a healthy place in the league, and the job now is to try to build on that."
