Newcastle boss Pardew big fan of Tottenham's AVB

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is looking forward to facing Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham today.

Pardew is wary of his adversary this weekend as he looks to add his scalp to that of compatriot Jose Mourinho.

He said: "I don't think anybody doubted his ability. I think Chelsea is a difficult club to manage and maybe it was just too soon for him for that type of club.

"He's such a young man and he has done so much already. He has got a really good Spurs team here and is quite rightly getting the plaudits that he deserves."
