Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew feels they could surprise people this season after their draw with Tottenham.

Shola Ameobi arrived late on to snatch a point four minutes from time with an impressive finish.

Pardew said: "We deserved something today and it was important for the stadium and the fans because they could have gone away and thought, 'Well, perhaps we are a bit short'.

"We ain't short. Maybe we might surprise everybody and maybe we might surprise ourselves."
