Team News: Crystal Palace
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Nathan Ferguson (Achilles tendon problems) won’t play.
Team News: Newcastle United
Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe has to currently contend with reduced team options. Matty Longstaff (Knee Injury) and Emil Krafth (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out on this game.
Here is a game where Crystal Palace will need things to go their way to break down this Newcastle United outfit who we think might be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a very even match with a 0-1 winning margin for Newcastle United at the end of the 90 minutes.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
