Crystal Palace vs Newcastle prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Newcastle

Two out of form sides, in desperate need of points, meet at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace’s winless run continues.

A fortnight ago, before their mid-season break, Crystal Palace were beaten 3-1 at Goodison Park by Everton in a game they deserved to get nothing from.

That made it three defeats in a row and extended their winless run in all competitions to eight.

In fact, they’ve only won one of their last 12.

The last time Palace lost four league games in a row was in March 2018.

In the table, the Eagles are 14th having been as high as seventh following their win over Bournemouth on 3 December.

Roy Hodgson’s side now only have a six point cushion over the bottom three.

They are one of just two Football League clubs yet to win in 2020, in any competition.

The other, Brighton & Hove Albion, they face next Saturday in the M23 derby.

Will they go into their big derby game off the back of a win?

As for Newcastle United, they’ll be hoping this visit to the capital goes better than their last.

Just six days ago, Steve Bruce’s side went in at half time at the Emirates with the score 0-0.

However, Arsenal scored twice just after the interval and then twice late on to wrap up a comfortable 4-0 win.

That was Newcastle’s second-biggest defeat of the season and their heaviest since 29 September when they shipped five at Leicester.

Overall, it means they’re winless in three and have actually only won one of their last eight in the Premier League.

That was the 1-0 home win over Chelsea when Isaac Hayden scored a 94th minute winner.

The Magpies are one point and one place above their hosts but are probably equally worried about the threat of relegation.

After this though they face Burnley, Southampton, Sheffield United, Aston Villa, Bournemouth and then West Ham.

Those, and this game, provide them with a very realistic opportunity for points to secure safety before they face Manchester City, Tottenham ad Liverpool in their last five.

The Toon Army have already celebrated two victories in London this season namely at Tottenham and West Ham.

They last won three games in a season in in the capital in 2013/14, against Tottenham, West Ham and Crystal Palace.

Will they win at Selhurst Park and create some London déjà vu?

At Everton Crystal Palace named their oldest ever starting XI in the Premier League at 30 years and 101 days.

So, given that they lost, it now means none of the last 18 teams to name a side with an average age of 30+ in the competition has won.

The league’s oldest manager, Roy Hodgson will got for experience again.

Goalkeeper Vicente Guaita has been largely good this season despite dropping a clanger in their last home game.

In defence, they are without Jeffrey Schlupp and Mamadou Sakho.

Patrick van Aanholt is back from injury so will start at right-back with Joel Ward preferred to Martin Kelly on the other side.

Gary Cahill and James Tomkins are a very settled centre-back pairing so Scott Dann and Jaïro Riedewald will remain on the bench.

In midfield, Cheikhou Kouyaté was a surprise omission at Goodison having been in the XI 77% of the time this season.

However, the Senegalese captain will return to rejoin Palace’s skipper Luka Milivojević and James McArthur with James McCarthy the man to make way.

Max Meyer will, as usual, only be on the bench.

Out wide, Wilfried Zaha will be looking to add to his measly three goals and five assists this season.

On the other side, Andros Townsend is fit again and will return to the XI.

So, top-scorer Jordan Ayew can return to playing through the middle.

That’ll see Christian Benteke return to the bench.

His goal at Everton ended a ten month wait for a goal; a drought that lasted 17 games and 765 minutes without finding the net.

The Belgian will join Cenk Tosun amongst the substitutes as he was ineligible to play at Goodison.

Can this side break down Newcastle?

As for Newcastle, following that 4-0 drubbing, Steve Bruce may be tempted to ring the changes somewhat.

Goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka has now conceded the second most goals in the Premier League.

However, a defence that is looking flimsier by the week is not helping.

At Arsenal Valentino Lazaro made his debut at right wing-back after joining on loan from Inter,

However, the Austrian international had a stinker and was at fault for the first two goals.

So, he’s likely to come out of the team with DeAndre Yedlin returning; Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo are injured.

On the other side, Danny Rose had a much more solid debut so will keep his place.

In the centre, Florian Lejeune and Fabian Schär are both likely to return alongside captain Jamaal Lascelles.

Federico Fernández and Ciaran Clark would be the pair to make way.

In midfield, Nabil Bentaleb has started every league game since joining on loan from Schalke.

Alongside him, Isaac Hayden is expected to return.

Sean Longstaff would drop out joining brother Matty on the bench; Jonjo Shelvey hasn’t quite recovered from a thigh problem.

In attack, it’ll be the same front three as always.

Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almirón may have only scored three and four goals respectively this season but both are a constant threat.

Can the same be said about Joelinton?

He’s scored just twice this season, in the win at Tottenham in August and in last month’s home victory over Rochdale in the FA Cup.

The Brazilian is likely to keep his place though ahead of Dwight Gayle; Andy Carroll and Yoshinori Mutō are injured.

Will this side leave Selhurst with all three points?
