Tip Reasoning

  • Newcastle have won five of their 12 Premier League home games, including three of their last five.
  • Norwich have lost nine of their 12 away games in the Premier League this season.
  • Three of Newcastle’s five home wins have been by the scoreline of 1-0.
  • Norwich have scored just six away goals in the league this season, failing to score on seven occasions.

Newcastle transform St James’ Park into fortress

Newcastle may have failed to see off the challenge of Oxford United in the FA Cup last weekend, but that goalless draw at St James’ Park did at least extend their unbeaten streak to six matches in all competitions. Steve Bruce may not be the most popular appointment of all time, but there’s no denying that he has done surprisingly well with this rather mediocre looking squad.

Obviously, Premier League survival was always going to be the Magpies’ main objective this season. It’s so far, so good as far as that is concerned, with Newcastle sitting 14th in the table with a seven point cushion on the drop zone. Not only that, but a win on Saturday could send them as high as 8th in the table, so it’s all up for grabs right now.

They will feel a win is very much within their capabilities too. They have the 7th best home record in the top flight, winning five of their 12 Premier League home games and losing just three times. Three of these victories came in their last five matches as well, and they’re facing a struggling Norwich side.

Canaries survival chances looking ever bleaker

The Canaries started the season with optimism as they put in a few very good performances, but it’s been a rocky road since then. Their last outing was a 2-1 loss to Tottenham, handing them their 15th defeat of the Premier League season and leaving them rock bottom of the table, six points adrift of safety.

It’s no surprise to find Norwich in this position considering their recent form. They have won just one of their last 11 top flight matches, and away from home they have lost 75% of their league games. Equally worrying is the fact they have failed to score in seven of these 12 matches, netting just six times on the road in total.

Home win expected against toothless Norwich

Considering Newcastle have won three of their last five home matches, including a 1-0 victory against Chelsea, we think backing them to win here is a very high value bet.

Norwich’s dreadful attacking record, plus the fact that Newcastle have won three of their five home matches 1-0, make a 1-0 correct score prediction our preferred tip there.
