Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is looking for his side’s unbeaten start to the league season to continue at Stoke, but admits they face a tough challenge at the Britannia.

But Pardew expects that record to be put to the test on Monday night, with Stoke’s home form seeing them undefeated and conceding only to Manchester United in their four matches so far.
