The Magpies took the fight to Tottenham Hotspur during the first half of their Premier League clash on Sunday, and were rewarded with Loic Remy's seventh goal of a productive loan spell.

They spent much of the second 45 minutes hanging on to that lead, but were rewarded for their bright opening with a 1-0 victory over a side harbouring top-four ambitions.

Success in north London came on the back of a 2-0 win over Chelsea in the north east the previous weekend, with Newcastle starting to show what they are capable of when in the right frame of mind.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle on the approach taken against two capital heavyweights: "Anybody who knows me will know I always expect to win. I have always been like that. I am a positive guy.

"On reflection, when I look back and think 'we have six points', I am going to be very happy because you would not expect to.

"I genuinely think we have been playing well.

"I said that before the Chelsea game and it has been proved again."

Newcastle have moved into ninth place in the Premier League table and will have the opportunity to cement a top-half standing after the international break with fixtures against Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion.

Pardew added: "We find ourselves in a brilliant position with two home games coming up.

"We have put ourselves in a good position and now we need to build on it."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.
