Tip Reasoning

  • Palace have lost three of their last four away games
  • Newcastle have won two of the last three meetings between these two including this season’s visit to Palace
  • Palace have lost three of their last four trips here
  • The Eagles have been beaten in five of their last eight away

Newcastle back to winning ways

Callum Wilson struck twice to guide Newcastle to a victory on Saturday, easing the pressure on Steve Bruce. The Magpies had been sliding into danger before that, but they’re up to 15th now after an impressive result at Everton.

However, it doesn’t take long for the Newcastle faithful to turn around Bruce. He needs to keep delivering, while it’s going to be key for Bruce to turn around their form at St James’ Park. Can the hosts step up and extend Crystal Palace’s poor record on the road?

Palace look poor on the road

While Crystal Palace won 1-0 against Wolves on Saturday, their form of late has been shaky. They head into this one with a poor run of away records behind them, losing three of their last four trips in all competitions.

The Eagles have beaten only Fulham and Sheffield United away in their last nine trips in the league, while they head into this clash having shipped 1.8 goals per game on the road this term. They look vulnerable to a defeat here, so it’s hard to see why the Magpies would be outsiders for this clash.

Newcastle to step up

Not only have Newcastle returned to winning ways, but they also claimed a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park when these two sides last met. The Magpies have won two of the last three meetings with Palace, along with three of the last four played at St James’.

Given that run, we think Newcastle are well priced to shade this one. With Palace losing five from eight on the road we think that the hosts are well priced for a victory, so a home win is our first prediction.

With Newcastle conceding in 90% of their home games and Palace shipping a goal in 90% of their trips, goals look likely here. Seven of Newcastle’s 10 home league games so far have seen over 2.5 goals and we’re backing this one to go the same way, with a 2-1 home win our correct score prediction.

Newcastle injuries and team news

The hosts are missing Jamaal Lascelles, so Ciaran Clark will replace him in the only change from last weekend’s win.

Crystal Palace injuries and team news

Crystal Palace are missing seven players through injury going into this one. Palace are set to start with Andre Ayew and Wilfried Zaha in support of Michy Batshuayi.
