Alan Pardew is expecting a tough test from Manchester City, although confidence is flowing for the Magpies at the moment.
Alan Pardew: “We never got carried away with a win.
"We have analysed and gone through why we were beaten.
“The two days after the Wigan game were more important than the performance.
“We needed honesty in terms of what happened, and how we would put it right.
“The answers we came up with were the reason we won at Chelsea.
“We put it right. It is very rare to be able to do that.”
