The Black Cats were beaten in the Tyne-Wear derby on Sunday as they lost 2-1 to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, marking the first time that Newcastle have lost back-to-back rival clashes since 1967.
Pardew's side host City in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night, and he is hoping for a quick response.
"There is a bit of anger in me that we did not win the Sunderland game," Pardew told The Telegraph. "A couple of silly mistakes cost us, that's what I was angry about. Not the attitude of the players or their application, but it is about concentration and professionalism.
"I want to take that anger into Man City and hope my players do too, but in the right manner because we need to find the right solution to win the game. We need to have that extra bit of aggression in our play."
The match kicks off at 7.45pm.
