Alan Pardew says that his Newcastle team challenging for a Champions League spot has been "brilliant" for the Premier League.

Alan Pardew has hailed his Newcastle United team as a "breath of fresh air" this season.

With only four games remaining, the Magpies lie fourth in the Premier League.

Three points ahead of Spurs, the North East club have a realistic shout for Champions League qualification.

Pardew believes that his team have not only surprised people by challenging for a top-four finish, but that they have done so playing "the right way".

"I think it's been great for the Premier League that we've done this," the 50-year-old told the Daily Mail. "It's been absolutely brilliant and we've been a breath of fresh air.

"People talk about Norwich and Swansea and the impact they've had and the way they play, which has been fabulous, but you can't get away from the fact that we've shaken up the division.

"We have shaken things up in the right manner and we've done it playing the right way."

Newcastle travel to Wigan this afternoon.
