Pardew has expressed his delight at the players available to him, describing them as "quality".
"The group is very, very strong. There's a real good feeling in there," Pardew told reporters. "Everybody is fit and available, so your Yohan Cabayes and Colos (Fabricio Coloccini) can look around and see quality - quality not even involved today.
"We've got a strength in depth that we didn't have when we finished fifth two years ago.
"I'm just really proud of the players. I think they should be very proud of themselves in terms of their work ethic."
Newcastle next face Swansea City on Wednesday night.
