Newcastle will host Fulham at the St James Park in their Premier League Matchday 20 tie on Sunday evening. The Magpies are having a season to remember but they will be keen to get their Champions League charge back on track after successive draws with Leeds and Arsenal. They are coming off a 2-0 win over Leicester in the EFL Cup and will draw confidence from that. Fulham have had impressive campaign and have needed no time to adapt to life back in the big time, as they head into the weekend occupying a place in the top-six of the Premier League. They beat Chelsea 2-1 last time out and will be buzzing with confidence ahead of their visit to St James Park.
