Crystal Palace have a right to go into Friday’s fixture with Newcastle feeling a little aggrieved.
The Eagles rounded-off last weekend’s action by losing 1-0 at Burnley in the Monday Night Football, while the Magpies kicked things off by going down 2-0 at home to Chelsea; four days’ rest meets six-and-a-half.
But so poor have Steve Bruce’s team been this season, scabbing their way to the vast majority of their 11 points, that I’m happy to write-off any extra fatigue as inconsequential when it comes to predicting the outcome.
C Palace have won 35% of their last 20 home league games and Newcastle have lost 50% of their last 20 away league games.
The last time Newcastle won away in the league was 4 games ago against West Ham. The last time C Palace lost a home league game was 3 matches ago against Everton.
C Palace last kept a clean sheet at home 4 games ago, and have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 20 home games. Newcastle last failed to score away in the league 1 games ago and have missed the net in 9 of their last 20 away league games.
Of the 7 league games C Palace has won at home, they scored first 6 times. Of the 10 away games Newcastle has lost, they conceded first 8 times.
