Harry ready for high-flying Magpies
Harry Redknapp has paid tribute to Alan Pardew and Newcastle for their season so far in the Premier League.
The Magpies are flying high after 24 matches and go into the weekend's fixture sitting above Liverpool and Arsenal in fifth on a run of four wins in five.
Harry has been particularly impressed with Newcastle's attacking play and they've added another striker to the mix in Papiss Demba Cisse, who made a spectacular entrance into English football with a debut goal in last week's win against Villa.
“Alan Pardew has done a fantastic job with them, to have them in that position,” said Harry. “To be honest, none of us expected that at the start of the season.
“Alan might say he did, but he's exceeded all expectations there, he's done a fantastic job.
“They've bought well, Cisse to go with Demba Ba, they've really good options up front with Ameobi and Best as well. They are a dangerous team, for sure.
“But we’re a good team as well and at home, we’ll take all the beating.”
