After four games without defeat, Newcastle players lost in the last round against Liverpool 1-2 at Anfield. Although they were leading 1-0, they could not save themselves from failure. They conceded a goal in the 98th minute and thus lost the first match of the season.
Magpies have been playing very well in the new campaign. They beat Nottingham Forest in the first match 2-0, then tied three draws against Brighton 0-0, Manchester City 3-3 and Wolves 0-0. They played exceptionally well against the current champions, leading 3-1, but Pep Guardiola’s players managed to equalize by the end of the match.
Newcastle players are playing better and better each match. It is evident that Eddie Howe is a very good coach and that the team will continue to improve as the season progresses. They have an excellent goalkeeper, they are disciplined in defense, while in attack they have individuals who are capable of bringing something good to their team with one move.
Crystal Palace’s games in the new season are also worthy of respect. They had a tougher schedule than Newcastle, they met Arsenal 0-2, Liverpool 1-1, and Manchester City 2-4.
Although they won only one point in these three matches, they can be satisfied with the game shown. The Eagles were leading against the Reds 1-0, and against Manchester City 2-0, but they failed to keep the lead. But despite the setback, many praised Crystal Palace’s performance in those games.
They are well organized in every line, rarely make mistakes, and are good enough to compete with any opponent. Many predicted that Patrick Vieira’s players would have to fight hard to stay in the elite group, but the impression is completely different after five rounds. They are quite stable and if they continue like this they will certainly not be relegated to the Championship.
Newcastle won 1-0 last season, while there was no winner in the match played in London 1-1.
Newcastle (4-3-3): Pope; Targett, Botman, Schar, Trippier; Longstaff, Willock, Joelinton; Fraser, Almiron, Isak
Crystal Palace (4-3-3): Guaita; Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Ward; Doucoure, Schlupp, Eze; Olise, Zaha, Mateta
We expect a very tough match. The defensive lines of both teams worked very well in the previous rounds, so we believe there is no reason not to continue that trend on Saturday.
Prediction: Total Goals Under 2.5
