Pardew hails 'good night' for Newcastle
- From the section Football
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says injuries and suspensions have created a false impression of his side in recent weeks, and is delighted to be able to field his "best team" in the 3-0 win over Premier League champions Manchester United.
The Magpies had won just once in their previous eight matches.
Pardew praises his players' performances, in particular those of Chiek Tiote and Demba Ba who will now be unavialable as they take part in the Africa Cup of Nations.
