Reason For Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Predictions

  • Newcastle are unbeaten in seven Premier League matches at St. James Park.
  • Four of those seven games finished all square however.
  • Both teams scored in 100% of Newcastle’s most recent four home games.
  • Crystal Palace are unbeaten in four games ahead of their trip to the north east.

Middle of the Premier League looking tight

Ahead of their meeting at St. James’ Park this weekend, both Newcastle and Crystal Palace are among the many clubs trapped in a bloated Premier League mid-section.

A win for either side this weekend could conceivably see the victors jump to the division’s top six places depending on results elsewhere, though a defeat could send the conquered team spiralling into the lower reaches of the table.

Newcastle will have to recover quickly from defeat in their last Premier League outing at Burnley to avoid the second of the aforementioned scenarios from playing out, though they will take heart from the fact that their 1-0 reverse at Turf Moor was their only loss in four.

Newcastle finding success at home

At St. James’ Park, the unfancied Magpies have shown remarkably consistent form however. Newcastle are unbeaten in seven top-flight matches on their own patch, and their opening weekend loss at home to Arsenal remains their only league defeat in the north east this season.

A notable characteristic of Newcastle’s home games so far this term has been the high prevalence of both teams scoring. Goals were registered at either end in 100% of the Magpies last four Premier League contests at St. James’ Park, a pattern that we think will continue this weekend.

Crystal Palace have fine form of their own to point to ahead of Saturday’s clash, and the Eagles draw at home to Brighton on Monday pushed their unbeaten stretch to four matches.

Roy Hodgson’s charges are among the clubs vying to be the best of the rest outside the Premier League’s top four this season, though the Eagles continue to fly under the radar for the most part.

Palace kept clean sheets in each of their last two Premier League away fixtures, though it’s only fair to acknowledge that those shutouts were secured against relatively toothless looking Burnley and Watford outfits.

Before that Crystal Palace had conceded in every away match they contested since the summer, shipping 2.1 goals per 90 minutes on average away from Selhurst Park overall.

Statistics suggest both teams will score

As one of the division’s most adept counter attacking teams, Palace routinely come armed with a considerable attacking threat on their travels – in fact the Eagles have scored more goals on the road (eight) than they have at home so far this season (seven).

We expect Crystal Palace to score again this weekend, though the Eagles’ underwhelming defensive record in away games suggests that a Newcastle team that scored at least once in six of their last seven at home, should also find joy in the final third.

With those factors considered, we think the both teams to score market holds plenty of value for Saturday’s game, while our correct score prediction forecasts a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

Encounters between Newcastle and Palace tend to be tight, with the teams sharing the points in two of their last three meetings. The Magpies finished level with their visitors in four of their last seven home matches, and we think Palace’s recent unbeaten run should galvanise them sufficiently to avoid defeat again.
