Newcastle United and Crystal Palace face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at St. James Park.
Newcastle comes into this game sitting in 12th place in the standings having picked up six points. In the last game against Liverpool, Newcastle was competitive, and they have to feel screwed out of a point in the last game. There were only supposed to be five stoppage minutes against Liverpool, but it was in the 98th minute that they gave up a goal, and were defeated 2-1. Newcastle has scored seven goals this year while giving up six goals. Callum WIlson has been the top goalscorer putting up two goals. Wilson is still dealing with a thigh injury, though, and it’s not expected that he will be back here.
On the other side of this matchup is Crystal Palace, and they sit in 13th place in the standings having picked up five points. In the last game against Brentford, Crystal Palace scored one goal and that was enough to secure the draw. Two games ago, against Liverpool, Crystal Palace also played to a 1-1 draw. Crystal Palace has scored seven goals total, while their defense has given up nine goals. Crystal Palace came out of the last game pretty healthy, and it could be the exact same crew that starts this game. Vicente Guaita is expected to get the start again in goal in this game.
Crystal Palace’s defense has been an issue away from home again this season, and that is going to be the difference again here. Look for Newcastle to score a couple of goals and that will be the difference as the home team gets the job done. Back Newcastle on the money line to cash here.
