Newcastle boss Pardew: Current Chelsea squad as good as any Mourinho has had

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew had no complaints after their 3-0 defeat to Chelsea.

He believes the current Chelsea squad is as good as any from Mourinho's first spell and is also optimistic of a resurgence from his team.

"This is as good as he's had. They've got a good chance," Pardew said.

"We need those players back, especially for games at this level.

"Tottenham is a game I'd like to think we can get through and hopefully get a strong result.

"And then after that I think a lot of our big players will come back to us and for the next 13 games I think we'll be strong and then in the summer we've got work to do."
