Newcastle United will clash heads with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday evening as they try to put an end to their miserable run of form in the Premier League. The Magpies suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur last weekend which led to Steve Bruce’s dismissal on mutual consent recently.

The Tyneside outfit will set themselves up in a 4-3-3 formation and could keep changes to a minimum for this game on the road. We can expect Callum Wilson to continue leading the line for the Magpies up top.

4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace

Defence

Karl Darlow will operate in goal for Newcastle despite conceding three goals versus Spurs in his last league outing. Ciaran Clark will resume his defensive partnership with Jamaal Lascelles at the heart of the Magpies backline as they look to keep the Eagles at bay during the 90 minutes.

Javier Manquillo will fill in at right-back while Matt Ritchie looks to impress as a makeshift left-back. Both of them will have to defend deep and find a way to stop the Crystal Palace wingers from creating too many problems out on the wide areas.

Fabian Schar will make up the numbers on the Newcastle bench as he offers cover for the centre-half positions.

Midfield

The Magpies midfield will be comprised of Isaac Hayden, Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock as they focus on making life difficult for the home side at the centre of the park. Willock will also have to create some inviting chances for his teammates in the final third.

Jeff Hendrick and Jacob Murphy will be available for selection on the bench but Jonjo Shelvey will miss out due to suspension.

Attack

Joelinton will have to figure out a way to put in a productive performance down the left flank while Allan Saint-Maximum hopes to put his pace to good use on the right. As mentioned earlier, Callum Wilson will lead the charge for the Tyneside giants down the middle. He will once again serve as Newcastle’s best hope for a goal this weekend.

Dwight Gayle will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the latter stages of the game if needed.
