Crystal Palace have almost guaranteed the place in top division for the next season as Alan Pardew’s men are 16th with 39 points after 35 matches. They are 8 points above the drop zone with only 3 matches remaining to play. Crystal Palace took 21 point on the road in 17 matches with 19-23 goal difference. Crystal Palace can’t take a win in last 9 away league matches. However, the FA Cup is the team’s priority as they have already reached the final and need to get ready for the clash with the Red Devils.
Newcastle have advantage in the head-to-head record between the teams but the reverse match this season ended with outstanding 5-1 victory of the Palace which was their first win over the Magpies in last 12 matches. The hosts can settle only with 3 points in this match while the visitors have no objectives and shouldn’t risk to get injuries before the FA Cup final at Wembley.
Prediction for the match: Newcastle to win.
