Newcastle United will entertain Crystal Palace at St. James’ Park this Saturday as they try to collect maximum points at home in the Premier League. The Magpies managed to secure an impressive 2-0 win over Burnley before the international break which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Eddie Howe will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his first team for this game. Callum Wilson, Jacob Murphy and Joelinton will play from the start of this clash.
4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace
Nick Pope will operate in between the sticks for the Magpies after securing a clean sheet in his last Premier League outing. Fabian Schar will resume his defensive partnership with Jamaal Lascelles at the centre of Newcastle’s backline as they try to make life tough for the opposition attackers.
Dan Burn will fill in as the left-back while Kieran Trippier looks to make a difference on the other side as the right-back. Both of them will get the freedom to express themselves in the opponent’s half so that they can offer enough support to the front players.
Paul Dummett will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.
Joelinton will have to pass a late fitness test if he wants to be involved in this game. The Brazilian could get a chance to impress alongside Sean Longstaff and Elliot Anderson at the centre of the park. All three of them would have to move the ball well if Newcastle are to create enough chances to win this clash at St. James’ Park.
Sandro Tonali will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.
Anthony Gordon will hope to catch the eye as the left-winger while Jacob Murphy looks to put his quickness to good use on the right flank.
Callum Wilson will lead the line for the Magpies up top. He would have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Tyneside club in the final third.
Alexander Isak is struggling with a knee injury and would be in a race against time to be fit for this game.
