Newcastle display frustrates Pardew

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits his side were not at their best as they drew 1-1 against Aston Villa at the Sports Direct Arena.

Pardew says Newcastle were playing Villa at the wrong time as they were determined to put their bad start to the season behind them.

A spectacular goal from Hatem Ben Arfa earned the Magpies a point and Pardew says the French winger has been their best player so far this season.
