​Palace boss Pardew has sympathy for Sunderland counterpart Moyes

Alan Pardew insists David Moyes deserves respect as he looks to apply more pressure on him when Crystal Palace visit Sunderland this weekend, reports Sky Sports.

Sunderland are still seeking their first league win under former Everton and Manchester United manager Moyes.

Pardew said: "David is a fantastic manager. His record at Everton is the best of any (active) British manager, probably, and he deserves respect for that.

"He's trying to find a new club, trying to find his way, and it takes time, and the pressure heaped on managers when they haven't got a win is becoming bigger and more intense every season.

"You can have sympathy for that situation because it's not a nice situation. David's experienced enough as it is but our trade being what it is, we're going there to win.

"And we're going to go there and do the best possible job that we can, with a team that at the moment looks in good form."
