Papiss Cissé’s brace helped the Magpies to a comfortable 2-0 victory over 10-man Liverpool at St James’ Park on Sunday.
Pardew’s men have won their last three games since suffering a last-gasp 2-1 defeat by Arsenal at The Emirates last month.
And Newcastle’s hopes of securing their place in Europe’s second tier competition may come down to Chelsea’s trip to Tyneside on 2 May.
“If someone said we were going to be in the Europa League I’d snap their hands off,” said Pardew.
“We’ve had a season where we’ve been chasing and concentrating on the top 10. These last 10 games we’ve said we’re in touching distance of the Europa League, let’s give it a go.
“We’ve won three out of three in that last 10. We’ve seven to go and we’re going to Swansea City in really good shape.
“Hopefully we’ll get enough points to get us into Europe.”
