Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
High-flying Newcastle United will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup last 32. The Magpies are on a four-game winning run in the Premier League, with the team scoring goals for fun, and it is no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping. Boss Eddie Howe, though, should rest key players against the Eagles, with all Chris Wood, Alain Saint-Maximin, Jonjo Shelvey, and Elliot Anderson pushing for a start.
Joelinton should be recalled as well after serving his one-game ban in a 4-1 crushing of Southampton. The capital club, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over the Saints and West Ham United, and seeing that Newcastle stars should be given a rest, the share of spoils is on the horizon. All Butland, McArthur, and Richards remain in the recovery room, while Odsonne Edouard is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Paul Dummet):
Paul Dummett is a product of Newcastle United’s youth school. His main position is left back, but he is capable of playing as a centre back as well. The defender was born on 26 September, 1991 and he played for the likes of Gateshead and St. Mirren on loan in the past.
Dummett returned to Newcastle United in 2013 and he featured in 18 games for the Magpies in the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign. On the last day of the season, he made a hard tackle on Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez and, in turn received death threats from Uruguay fans on Twitter. The Newcastle United defender scored one goal in 23 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the St. James’ Park outfit avoid relegation to the Championship.
