Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Match Preview

Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle).

Newcastle United and Crystal Palace go head to head at St. James’ Park in what is expected to be a close match. 

The Magpies desperately needed a win against Everton at the weekend, and they managed to get one. Newcastle United regained a much-needed confidence, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Palace. 

A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Callum Wilson, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over Everton.

The Eagles, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wolverhampton. 

The capital club are eyeing a spot in top ten, but beating Newcastle United is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at St. James’ Park, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. 

The likes of Ferguson, Hennessey, Sakho, Schlupp, Tomkins, and Wickham are all sidelined with injuries.

Team News:

Newcastle lost captain Jamaal Lascelles to injury after 54 minutes against Everton, and Bruce has since conceded that the centre-back will miss "a good few weeks" with that hamstring problem.

Ciaran Clark should therefore be called upon to deputise with Federico Fernandez also still injured, while Paul Dummett could potentially return despite missing out against Everton, but DeAndre Yedlin is supposedly closing in on a move to Galatasaray.

Allan Saint-Maximin demonstrated his usual flashes of brilliance after coming off the bench for the third league game in a row, and the 23-year-old may finally be ready to return to the starting lineup this week.

Palace also lost a player to injury at the weekend in the form of James McCarthy, but the extent of the midfielder's problem is currently unclear.

With James McArthur also failing to make the cut at the weekend, Jairo Riedewald is in contention for a start in midfield, but the likes of Jeffrey Schlupp, James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho remain in the treatment room.

New arrival Jean-Philippe Mateta was an unused substitute at the weekend and will be hoping to make his debut for the Eagles at St James' Park.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Darlow; Manquillo, Schar, Clark, Lewis; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, M. Longstaff, Saint-Maximin; Wilson

Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Clyne, Kouyate, Dann, Van Aanholt; Riedewald, Milivojevic; Townsend, Eze, Zaha; Mateta
