With a gap opening between the top four and everyone else this is a game that has taken on another level of importance. Crystal Palace vs Newcastle is sure to be a hard-fought encounter, but one that the away side will be desperate to win to put more space between themselves and the chasing pack.
Crystal Palace vs Newcastle Prediction and Betting Odds
Crystal Palace Run of Form
The Eagles have been somewhat unlucky to only pick up one win in their last five. Two of those were spirited efforts against Manchester United and Chelsea, resulting in a draw and narrow defeat respectively. Their recent poor form is in no way an indication of this team’s quality and effort on the field, something their visitors will need to be wary of.
Newcastle Run of Form
The Magpies have only lost one league game so far this season, the only reason they aren’t higher up the table is they have drawn eight of their 19 matches so far. With three wins from their past five games they look set to solidify their spot in the top four of the Premier League.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle Prediction
Patrick Viera’s side are a hard-nosed team with enough talent to catch anyone slipping. That’s why we predict this one to end in a draw, potentially 0-0 as Newcastle don’t concede much, but a 1-1 score line would be equally fair.
