Newcastle boss Alan Pardew says players are 'on fire'

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says his players are "on fire" ahead of their Premier League trip to West Ham United on Saturday.

After a poor start to the season, the Magpies scored a fifth successive league win with their 1-0 victory over QPR at St James' Park, to move them up to fifth in the table.

Despite Newcastle's superb form, Pardew expects a tough game at Upton Park and says his old club West Ham have moved forward "massively", with Sam Allardyce making the "best transfers of the summer".
