Newcastle team news

The weekend win over Leicester came too soon for Ryan Fraser but Joe Willock was fit enough to make the bench, coming on to play an instrumental role in Bruno Guimaraes' 95th-minute winner.

Long-term absentees Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson have recovered enough to lace up their boots but are in a race against time to appear again this season.

Jamal Lewis (groin) and Isaac Hayden (knee) are still stuck on the sidelines.


Palace team news

Michael Olise and Tyrick Mitchell both overcame late fitness tests to feature in the fruitless visit to Wembley. However, Will Hughes was left out of the squad with a knock he's been carrying for the past few weeks.

Full-back Nathan Ferguson was treated to his first competitive minutes in senior football on Boxing Day after the best part of two years recovering from an Achilles injury. However, the 21-year-old suffered a new setback in April - Patrick Vieira did his best to underplay as 'just a step back'.


Newcastle vs Palace score prediction

Eddie Howe's first match in charge back in November ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw that left his new club still winless and bottom of the division. That same day, Palace also drew 3-3, but a point took them into the top half of the table.

Five months later, these two sides are inseparable in the standings - and may well continue to be after a midweek fixture that could end in another draw for two sides with 23 stalemates between them this season.

Prediction: Newcastle 1-1 Crystal Palace
