ALAN Pardew believes Newcastle United will come up against the Premier League’s hardest-working team when they take on West Brom on Sunday.

Newcastle will be looking to make it five wins in a row in the 1.30pm kick-off at the Hawthorns, but Pardew is expecting a tough test against Alan Irvine’s side.

He said: “We are winning games, confidence is good and everyone is playing their part. We look forward to the game on Sunday.

“West Brom are the hardest-working team in the Premier League so we will have to match that on Sunday.”
