Newcastle United will be looking to make it back-to-back victories in the Premier League for the second time only this season when they welcome Crystal Palace at St Jame’s Park on Tuesday evening with kickoff at 11:15 pm.
The Magpies ended their horrific run of defeats last weekend with a 2-0 win over Everton. On the other, Crystal Palace gained three vital points from their 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Newcastle managed to end their losing run by beating Everton 2-0 on Meyerside on the weekend. The win managed to ease some pressure on Steve Bruce for a few days at least.
It was an impressive display of dominance for Steve Bruce with Callum Wilson’s brace at Goodison Park. It marks his tenth goal of the season while handing Newcastle their first victory of 2021.
The victory at Goodison Park ended Steve Bruce’s six defeats across all competitions for Newcastle and marked the first time in 11 matches to score more than one goal in a game. Their last major win dates back to December in their 5-2 loss to Leeds United.
Eberechi Eze continued to show his impressive display in the league after his strike saw Wolves last weekend. Palace managed to take one point from their January clashes with in-form sides Arsenal, Manchester City, and West Ham United.
