Newcastle: Hatem Ben Arfa's penalty ten minutes from time helped Newcastle pick up all the three points against Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham Hotspur. The Frenchman was bundled over in the box in the 80th minute, took the resultant spot kick himself, sending Brad Friedel the wrong way.
Earlier, Newcastle took the lead in the second half following a poor opening 45 minutes from both sides in front of goal thanks to a great strike from Demba Ba.
Tottenham were then level with less than 15 minutes to play thanks to a Jermain Defoe tap-in, but Newcastle were back on top thanks to Ben Arfa's spot kick, after he was fouled by Aaron Lennon in the box.
The late drama proved too much for Pardew, who was sent to the stands by referee Martin Atkinson for a furious response to a touchline incident shortly before Andre Villas-Boas' men had snatched their leveller.
