Pardew says Demba Ba will miss the white-hot atmosphere of St James' Park.
Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: “I’ve been at some big clubs where you don’t get an atmosphere like that.
“Big, big clubs. Even at Manchester United.
“You can go to three quarters of their home games and you don’t get an atmosphere like that. It was unbelievable.
“That’s what we’ve got. Demba’s going to miss it at Chelsea, trust me.”
