Crystal Palace vs Newcastle 28 Nov 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
28 November 2015/ 1000ET
Yohan Cabaye will lead his Crystal Palace side again this weekend as the Eagles face a struggling Newcastle team at home. Both teams will go into this match with hopes that they can win and this should be a good match.
Crystal Palace have been playing well this season and were looking very convincing until the international break. Since the break they have not looked as good and after losing last week to Sunderland there will be a few nervous fans at Selhurst Park. That being said this team has plenty of quality and I have high expectations of this side and am hopeful that they can bounce back and win against Newcastle. This team has plenty of quality and with a great manager in Alan Pardew, they have the talent to really make an impact in the league. A win at home this weekend will be a good way for them to get back on track and I think that they should win.

Newcastle will be hoping that they can do what Sunderland did last week and will go into this match knowing that they need to win a few games in a row in order to get themselves in a comfortable position where they will not get relegated. Newcastle are a team with a lot of history and another relegation is something that is not wanted so it will be important for them to win games like this. That being said I don’t think that they will win. Newcastle have been poor lately and Crystal Palace have too much quality. Furthermore they will be away from home and that will make this task near impossible to accomplish.
Overall I think that Crystal Palace will coast home and unfortunately for Newcastle it will be another defeat. Palace have quality and they have managed to sneak past many top sides this season. I think that Newcastle will get thumped and Crystal Palace (-1) will be my pick. Simply betting on the outright result has no value since Palace are overwhelming favorites but the handicap is good value. Another good bet this game might be for Yohan Cabaye to score. Cabaye is a superstar and he has a good sense in front of goal so expect the Frenchman to put a few into the back of the Newcastle net.
