What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Newcastle
Newcastle have only picked up one point in five Premier League games but are playing well enough to warrant support at Crystal Palace, judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Magpies have only lost by the odd goal against four of last season’s top six teams, going down 2-1 on each occasion.
They will be mixing in more conducive company at Selhurst Park and 29/10 for an away win has value appeal for our first Crystal Palace vs Newcastle prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace have had a mixed bag of results so far this term, beating Fulham and Huddersfield on the road but losing to Liverpool, Watford and Southampton in between.
Wilfried Zaha was once again the catalyst for last weekend’s 1-0 win over the Terriers and there was more good news this week when Scotland midfielder James McArthur signed a contract extension.
McArthur told the club website: “The manager has put together a very good squad, where there is competition for places all over the field. I think we will get stronger and stronger.”
However, a 2-0 defeat by the Saints on home turf at the start of the month highlights how Roy Hodgson’s team still lacks consistency.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha, Ayew.
Christian Benteke will be Palace’s only significant absentee as the striker remains sidelined with a knee injury, so Jordan Ayew is expected to continue to deputise.
Scott Dann and Connor Wickham continue their recoveries from long-term knee injuries.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
A tough early fixture list has put Newcastle under pressure but there has been no lack of effort in narrow losses to Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.
Ciaran Clark, who netted a late consolation versus the Gunners, told NUFC TV: “We knew it was going to be tough coming into the first set of fixtures and we have just been pure unlucky.
“In every game, we could have taken at least a point, so we have got to keep our chins up, keep going and get back to training and start again.
“We have played four of the big sides, really big teams with great players, so we’re not going to dwell on that. We just know we have got games coming up now that we can win.”
Rafael Benitez’s men enjoyed the better of the first half against the Gunners and could have won their other game, when drawing 0-0 at Cardiff after Kenedy missed a stoppage-time penalty.
If the Magpies can hold their nerve, this is a chance to kick-start their campaign and 19/2 for a 1-0 away win is added to our Crystal Palace vs Newcastle betting tips.
United did take four points off the Eagles in this division last season!
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Dummett, Lascelles, Fernandez, Yedlin, Murphy, Diame, Ritchie, Hayden, Ayoze Perez, Joselu.
Newcastle skipper Jamaal Lascelles is fit to take his place in the squad, despite aggravating an ankle problem last weekend.
Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey was not risked against the Gunners after returning to the bench following a lay-off with a thigh injury, but has trained all week and only defender Florian Lejeune (knee ligaments) is missing.
