Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he was "cheered up" by Manchester United's 2-2 draw with Fulham and aims to finish above David Moyes' side this season.
The Magpies will be hoping to close the four-point gap to the champions with victory over Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park on Wednesday night in what will be Pardew's 150th game in charge of the club.
Pardew says he has enjoyed 90% of his time at Newcastle and wants to give the fans the trophy they "thoroughly deserve" before his 200th game at the helm.
