Crystal Palace vs Newcastle
SAT 22 FEB 2020
Palace at some points recently were in the top half of the table and suddenly they’re sliding down.
Six points separate them from the drop and now, every game counts.
Newcastle were blown away emphatically in the second half against Arsenal, though they could have scored twice in during the match.
Saint-Maximin who was lively all afternoon struck the foot of the post with Leno well beaten and Miguel Almiron fired wide of goal earlier.
That heavy loss now means there is just one point between the two on the day.
This fixture is one of the lowest-scoring one in the Premier League.
The last five fixtures have produced just five goals, averaging just one goal a game.
The current dynamics also mean we shouldn’t expect too many goals or what do you expect from a team that has Benteke upfront and another that has Joelignton who has scored just once in 26 games?
🗣 Roy: "Tomkins is added to the injury list we had. Cenk Tosun is now back fit again. Unfortunately we've had a few ill players as well, so we might need to monitor that."— Crystal Palace F.C. (@CPFC) February 21, 2020

SB on injuries: “It’s the first time we’ve had 18 or 19 players training for weeks so it’s a welcome boost to everybody. We think Jonjo [Shelvey] & Emil [Krafth] might join in training next week and we all hope Andy Carroll is going to be fine in the not too distant future too.” pic.twitter.com/pLjaoHVa2K— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) February 21, 2020
Betting prediction: Under 3.5 goals
