Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United Predictions and Betting Tips

Crystal Palace welcome Newcastle United to the Selhurst Park this Friday. Will both sides play out yet another low-scoring encounter? Read on for our expert's opinions for this Premier League game.

The Eagles haven't lost to the Magpies on home soil since the 2013/14 season. However, Newcastle possesses the superior head-to-head record over the last 18 encounters with nine wins in this period.

Zaha's impact instantly felt

The talismanic winger was unavailable for the London side in their most recent game against Burnley. They failed to find the back of the net and as such, gave the Clarets their first league win of the campaign. Hodgson will have to figure out a way to play without a guy that has a hand in about 60% of his side's Premier League goals after the winger tested positive for the coronavirus.

Consecutive losses for Bruce's troops

A loss at either side of the international break only points to some struggle for the side from Tyneside. What's more, the Magpies failed to get on the scoresheet in both games. With that, it seems their overdependence on Callum Wilson's goals has come back to hunt them with the Englishman being involved in seven of their ten league goals.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United Team News

Zaha is also expected to miss this game given his coronavirus problems. Lascelles following his injury last time out joins Dummett, Gayle, and Dubravka and others on the Magpies' injury list.

Newcastle United possible starting XI:

Darlow; Lewis, Clark, Schar, Fernandez, Manquillo; Murphy, Shelvey, Longstaff, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton

Crystal possible starting XI:

Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyate, Clyne; Schlupp, McArthur, Jairo, Townsend; Batshuayi, Ayew

The Eagles are in for quite a bumpy ride given the absence of their talismanic winger. Going up against a team like Newcastle only makes the situation a little bit worse as the Magpies are also in desperate need of all three points.

Both sides don't really find the back of the net anytime they clash so under 2.5 goals should be considered. For our correct score predictions, we believe both sides share the spoils with a 1-1 draw.
