Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After producing a fine display in a 2-2 draw with Arsenal, Crystal Palace will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Newcastle United at their Selhurst Park. The Eagles were on the verge of beating the Gunners at Emirates Stadium, and, no doubt, they are capable of defeating the Magpies in front of home fans. Both Ferguson and Eze remain in the recovery room, but key man Zaha should be fit for Saturday’s clash.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-2 loss to Tottenham, and given their difficulties at the back, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the capital club. To make things even worse for the visitors, important midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is sidelined through suspension.
Highlighted Player (Eberechi Eze):
Eberechi Eze is a talented football player who was born in Greenwich, England on June 29, 1998. Eze started his youth career at Millwall and in the summer of 2016 he moved to Queens Park Rangers, signing a one-year contract with the capital club.
Eze scored 4 goals in 42 appearances for the Hoops in the 2018/2019 Championship campaign, while providing 4 assists for his teammates.His main position is attacking midfield, but he is capable of playing as both right and left midfielder as well. Eze is a footballer of Nigerian descent, but he has yet to make his debut for the Super Eagles in international matches.
Given his place of birth, the 173-cm tall midfielder was eligible to play for the England U20 team and he made his debut for the Three Lions on October 11, 2018 in a 2-1 victory over Italy. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Newcastle):
Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354.
Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past.
David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club. Newcastle’s fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. The color of Newcastle’s home kit is black and white.
