Sandro Tonali is being investigated for gambling, but it looks like he’s going to be available for this game, although this might be the last game that he plays this season. Anthony Gordon was suspended for the last game but he’s going to be able to go in this game.

Eze and Olise are both out this game and it’s a big loss here. Jeffrey Schlupp and Jairo Riedewald were both hurt in the last game and it doesn’t look like they are going to be able to go in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
It wouldn’t surprise if Newcastle decided to keep Tonali on the bench with everything surrounding him, but even if he can’t go, Newcastle is going to find success here. Crystal Palace is going to struggle to get any type of offense going here, and that is going to be the difference as Newcastle is going to get the job done. Back Newcastle on the money line to cash here.
