Alan Pardew admits it would be a 'kick in the teeth' if Newcastle missed out on the Champions League due to Chelsea winning the tournament.
Newcastle currently occupy fourth spot in the Premier League table and sit three points behind third-placed Arsenal with a game in hand.
If the Magpies do hang on to fourth, ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, a place in next season's Champions League will only be guaranteed if the Blues fail to beat Bayern Munich in the final in May.
Pardew feels it would be 'harsh' on his side to be denied a spot in Europe's elite club competition after Newcastle exceeded all expectations this term.
"We don't want Chelsea to win the Champions League because we want that spot along with Tottenham and Arsenal," said Pardew.
"It would be harsh if we finished fourth and then missed out. That would be a kick in the teeth."
Newcastle have already clinched European football for next season and Pardew is hoping his team's tough run-in will help to claim fourth spot.
He added "We are already in the Europa League, that is done.
"We are there, so that is a major achievement for all of us. We now have this opportunity for the Champions League. But we have some tough games and sometimes that may be a better way to do it.
"We have to beat some of the best teams - Wigan next, Chelsea, Man City and Everton.
"We had our best result of the season when we beat Man U 3-0 at home. Sir Alex will be looking at our game against City, thinking it's a tough one for them."
what do you think?
Excuse me Mr Pardew And Chelsea in the champions league final is not a major achievement!!! yes you have had a good season but I support any of our teams in Europe and I wouldn't want any of them to lose.... I now personally hope you DO NOT win another game this season after your comments and where will you be next season ? probably back in the bottom half AGAIN
?b - wes,Why would any toon fan want chelsea to win the champions league if they win we wont get in there so if you ask any newcastle fan that question they will laugh at you although its good for english football I dont want them to win end of
good game against wigan wasn't it idiot
Chelsea might do it on penalties this time as cheat jt won't be playing.
all this bleeting.. you never even finished 4th anyway still you'll be back to normal next season joining the fight to stay up your teams is a joke thats end of
I understand Toon fans will want Chelsea to lose the Champions League so if they finish 4th they will have Champions League next season but as they have just got mullered by Wigan and will get the same from Chelsea and Man City I think it will all be irrelevant.
Great result in your next game after those comments, against wigan i think. that was a big dent in your ambition and one that stopped you finishing in the top 4 whilst I am very happy that Chelsea won the champions league and I am a Chelsea fan, i do feel sorry for Spurs and Harry because he has transformed them and they really do deserve to be in the champions league
