Alan Pardew insists United will have to be on top of their game against Norwich on Sunday, as he bids to extend the Magpies' unbeaten start to the season at home.
Tottenham, Atromitos and Aston Villa have all visited Tyneside so far this term and left without being able to topple Pardew's troops.
The Canaries are the next side to try their luck in a fixture which also sees the first return of former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton, who left the Club in December 2010.
And while Pardew knows just what a tough test Norwich will pose, United's current boss is confident of building on a solid start to the 2012/13 campaign.
"Chris did a fabulous job here and will be well received," explained Pardew.
"They have got some great pros and we will have to take care of their good players - guys like (Anthony) Pilkington and (Grant) Holt.
"The organisation of Norwich is very strong and I think they will do okay this year. But we are at home and we need to win.
"Chris has been quite brave and played two strikers in most of their games, unlike a lot of the Premier League sides.
"I think he will get his reward for that, but hopefully not against us."
Norwich rose from League One to the Premier League in just two seasons, and then followed it up by consolidating their top flight status last term.
And Pardew has been impressed by the way they have built on that success.
"They've got great work ethic amongst that group," he said.
"Seven or eight of the players have gone through two divisions, and that's the spirit of the team.
"They have added quality to that. (Robert) Snodgrass has started well for them - he's a good player and someone I had a look at.
"So they've got good players in there and we have to make sure we are at the top of our game if we are going to get anything."
