Pardew left furious with Newcastle players after Spurs thrashing

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew was furious with his players after their 4-0 home defeat to Tottenham.

The defeat was Newcastle's fifth on the trot on their own pitch in all competitions. It was also the club's fourth home loss in succession in the league, the first time they have endured such a run since 1987.

Pardew, who marked 150 games at the helm, said: "I don't want to stand there in my 150th game and watch a performance like that. I don't care about how good Tottenham were, it doesn't interest me.

"They were good, but my team has to be better than that. I am not going to go into any more detail than that.

"I made my views very clear in the dressing room. That's where they will stay."
