Newcastle vs Crystal Palace – Result Prediction (Premier League – 21.12.2019)




Preview and Teams Comparison.

Newcastle United are currently enjoying a seven-game unbeaten Premier League (PL) streak at home, but haven’t gone eight unbeaten since April 2012. All nine of their competitive home fixtures this season have been decided by no more than one goal though, so this game is likely to be tight. The hosts’ solid home form has come at the expense of excitement, with Newcastle netting an average of just 1.13 goals per PL home game so far – the division’s joint-fourth lowest average. In fact fixtures at St James’ Park have seen an average of just 2.0 total goals per fixture – the PL’s second lowest.

Crystal Palace have been impressive on the road recently, losing just one of their last five PL away games (W2, D2). They have scored an average of just 1.0 goals per top-flight road trip though, but have also conceded an average of just 1.38 at the other end. After a goalless draw in their last away outing, the visitors have now recorded two consecutive PL away clean sheets – the first time they’ve achieved that feat since December 2017. However if they manage to pull off a win here don’t expect it to come ‘to nil’ as both teams have scored in six of their previous eight top-flight away victories.

Players to watch: Federico Fernández has netted in two of Newcastle’s last four PL wins – he scored his side’s second goal each time.
Jordan Ayew (CRY) has netted the last goal in three of the four PL games he’s got on the scoresheet this season.

Stat attack: Newcastle are yet to trail at half-time at home this league campaign (HT: W1, D7). Palace have seen a league-high 12 of their 17 games produce under 2.5 goals. The last five H2Hs witnessed under 2.5 goals. The three that produced a winner all ended 1-0.
