Newcastle go into todayâ€™s Liverpool showdown at St Jamesâ€™ Park with an eight-point lead over Kenny Dalglishâ€™s side. But Pardew admits he would be happy with a draw.
He said: â€œTo finish above them, I have to tell you, the wine will taste nice in the Âsummer. But thatâ€™s not going to be easy Âbecause their run-in is much smoother than ours.
â€œI think itâ€™s very important we donâ€™t lose. If somebody said, â€˜Would you take a draw?â€™ I would.
â€œBut we will be trying to win for our fans, who are really up for it, and our stadium will be rocking.
â€œIt might be a high-scoring game with the players on the pitch. If I have to suffer a 5-4 victory, I will have to take it!â€™â€™
