    Crystal Palace v Newcastle United team news

    CHRIS SUTTON’S PREDICTION

    Newcastle were a bit fortunate on Sunday, when Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic slipped to miskick his penalty with the score at 0-0 before the Magpies nicked it late on.

    It is things like that which make you think it is going to be their season, in terms of a top-four finish, especially when you consider how strong they are defensively.

    This is another tough test for them, though. As I keep saying, Palace are impossible to predict – but they are generally a bit better when they take on the teams at the top of the table.

    Newcastle will be without injured midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, who has been such a star for them, and they might have to settle for a point this time.

    Prediction: 1-1
