Team News

  • Alan Pardew serves the second of a three match stadium ban but will be desperate to get his message across following a defeat to bottom club Fulham last time out.
  • He has a number of injuries to contend with, with Remy, Santon and Debuchy all certain to miss out.
  • With very few options to turn to wholesale changes are unlikely despite the disappointing result last time out, but Hatem Ben Arfa could return in place of Luuk de Jong.
  • Marouane Chamakh remains the only certain absentee, so Cameron Jerome and Glenn Murray are in competition for a place up front.
  • The back four should remain unchanged after another clean sheet last time out, with Joel Ward having switched to the left and Mariappa lining up on the right.
  • Jason Puncheon will hope to return to the starting XI at the expense of Dikgacoi or Ince.

Prediction

  • Newcastle have very little to play for and injuries are mounting against them, not to mention the fact that their manager is serving a lengthy ban.
  • Tony Pulis may well see this game as a real chance to pick up points given the circumstances, though Palace will have to improve upon their dismal away form to do so.
  • The Eagles defensive record is what is likely to keep them up if they do avoid the drop and they will sit deep and wait for their chances on the counter or from set pieces here.

  • Newcastle to win

  • haha these are the type of games anything can happen,The injuries to newcastle will even things out.Yes I suppose below 2.5 looks reasonable.

  • Under 2.5 looks obvious. with palace being pretty solid at the back & newcastle without Remy. Cissé can't score to save his life. Recent Palace away games suggest there wont be more than 2 goals.

  • DRAW---> 1-1
