Newcastle boss Pardew: Victory over Chelsea best moment of career

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says victory over Chelsea was the best of his 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.

"The Chelsea team were determined to turn round the situation. It was their best team. Ivanovic was back in at right-back, John Terry in the team.

"It took a real, proper performance from us to get a win against them."
