Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has warned Manchester City ahead of Sunday's huge game. He reckons the Magpies are able to head into their home game against the league leaders in confident mood.

"We deserve our billing," Pardew said. "As much as Man City deserve their billing as title contenders we go [into the game] on an even playing field.

"With our best away performance under our belt and if we play like we did against United at home with our fans it makes us special."
