Newcastle boss Pardew: Victory over Chelsea best moment of career
Toon edged a five goal thriller 3-2.
Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "It was the best game I've ever seen as a manager.
"Obviously, in the cup final we had the 3-3 against Liverpool in 2006. It was at that level, trust me. That was a real game of football.
"It took a real, proper performance from us to get a win against them."
