PRESSURE ... Newcastle boss Alan Pardew.

ALAN Pardew is NOT under threat at Newcastle United – despite the club’s dip in form.

Newcastle have lost their last three games without scoring a goal.

And the club’s 4-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night was United’s fifth successive home reverse.

A report yesterday claimed manager Pardew would be dismissed if his team failed to beat Aston Villa at St James’s Park a week today.

But SportMail understands Pardew – who is under contract at Newcastle until 2020 – is not under threat, despite unrest among fans.

United’s objective this season is a top-10 finish in the Premier League.

The club is ninth in the table with 12 games left to play.
