Suarez has been a divisive figure for many outside of Anfield but Pardew is an unashamed fan of the Uruguayan forward.

And he is looking for Magpies magician Ben Arfa to conjure something similar for his side - starting when the two teams meet live on Sunday.

"He is an outstanding talent. There is no doubt about that," Pardew told the Newcastle Chronicle, when asked about Suarez.

"I think you have to see how many chances he creates and how many things he does in a game.

"You could do a highlights show for him after every game.

"I've been talking to Hatem about trying to have the same impact that Luis is having.

"Hatem almost did on Sunday (against West Brom). You could have put him in that category.

"We're looking at our own assets and we want them to worry about us."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)
