Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Predictions

  • Newcastle have won eight of 13 league games in 2022
  • The Magpies have won their last five home league games
  • However, the hosts have conceded a goal per game in the league in 2022
  • Palace have scored in five of their last six league trips and they welcome back Conor Gallagher here

Magpies on the move

They were one of the Premier League’s worst teams in 2021, if not the worst, but Newcastle have made huge strides under Eddie Howe. They’ve taken off since the turn of the year, with Sunday’s win over Leicester further evidence of their progress.

Newcastle have won eight of their 13 Premier League matches in 2022 (D2 L3), having won 13 of 42 in 2021. Only Liverpool (32) and Spurs (27) have won more points than the Magpies in the calendar year. Can they follow that up with a victory over Palace?

Eagles dealt cup blow

Despite an encouraging performance on Sunday, Crystal Palace were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals. The Eagles were without Blues loanee Conor Gallagher in that one and his return to the side should give them a little more presence going forward in this clash.

However, despite their progress this term there are still issues for boss Patrick Viera. The Eagles have lost six times on the road this term, losing half of their trips to sides outside the bottom three. It’s hard to see them getting much against a Newcastle side who have won their last five home matches.

Howe to match Robson record

Newcastle last won six in a row between January and April 2004 under Sir Bobby Robson, but I’m backing Eddie Howe to match that after picking up eight wins in their last 12. However, the hosts have still got defensive issues despite their rise up the table.

Newcastle have conceded 1.69 goals per home game this season. They’ve slightly improved, but they’ve still shipped 13 goals in 13 league games in 2022. Palace have scored in five of their last six away in the league, so I’m backing Newcastle to win this one with both teams scoring.

Side with a narrow home win for a Newcastle side who have won by a single goal in all but two victories this term, so I’m going with a 2-1 correct score prediction.

Newcastle predicted lineup: Dubravka; Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett; Guimaraes, Shelvey, Joelinton; Almiron, Wood, Saint-Maximin

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Kouyate, Schlupp; Ayew, Mateta, Zaha
