Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in seven of Newcastle’s eight Premier League games this season.
  • Both teams have scored in each of Crystal Palace’s last three league matches.
  • These sides have played out four 2-2 draws between them this season.

Vieira finds his feet at Palace

Patrick Vieira’s reign at Crystal Palace didn’t get off to the brightest of starts back in August as they failed to score in any of their opening three matches but a couple of months on things are looking decidedly more optimistic at Selhurst Park.

The Eagles were dreadfully unlucky to only leave the Emirates with a point last weekend after Alexandre Lacazette’s last-gasp equaliser and while the wins haven’t been flowing with regularity they are proving tough to beat.

In fact, Palace have lost just two league games this season and after their slow start they seem to have found their shooting boots, scoring ten goals in their last six top-flight matches.

Magpies begin post-Bruce era

Palace aren’t the only side at the beginning of a new era and Newcastle’s new dawn kicked off with a defeat at home to Spurs last weekend, with the departure of Steve Bruce following in midweek to leave the Magpies without a manager.

While Bruce was a much-derided figure at St James’ Park, he has at least managed to get Newcastle scoring with regularity, although that has come at the expense of any semblance of defensive stability.

Expect goals at Selhurst Park

The visitors have scored in seven of their eight league games this season but have shipped a league-high 19 goals at the other end and are yet to keep a clean sheet.

This points towards a both teams to score bet, which has landed in each of Palace’s last three games and in all but one of Newcastle’s league outings this season.

With Vieira’s men drawing five of their last seven league games – three of which ended 2-2 – and Newcastle drawing three of their last six I’m also opting for a 2-2 correct score prediction.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Milivojevic, Gallagher, McArthur; Ayew, Edouard, Benteke
