Huge game for Newcastle United on Sunday as they look for their first win of the season and Steve Mclaren's side will be eager to get it here against a Norwich team that have been good so far this season. Newcastle have really struggled to get things going this season and after a terrific 2-2 draw with Chelsea two games back which should have been a confidence builder, instead Newcastle came to the Ethiad a week later and got hammered 6-1. Newcastle need to get some things sorted defensively and Steve Mclaren will be under pressure as a manager even if he has only been in the job a couple of months. Cisse, Ayoze, Mitrovich and Sissokho will provide the Magpies with some options for goals but they must defend better or they will continue to struggle.
Norwich City have been excellent away from home this season with just one loss in five games in all competitions. The Canaries have managed draws against the red hot West ham and away to Liverpool. manager Neil will look to continue that strong form when they face a Newcastle team that are really struggling both home and away. Cameron Jerome, Robbie Brady, Wes Hoolohan and Nathan Redmond will take the game to Newcastle as Norwich look to move back up the table.
Newcastle United are bound to get a performance from their team soon, I think Norwich City though have proven themselves to be a tough nut to crack and Norwich have actually managed to score in all bar one game this season. For me I am going to take both teams to score here as I see this one being an open game and one that is very tough to call a winner in.
