Is Newcastle vs Crystal Palace on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture


Newcastle host Crystal Palace in the Premier League tonight as both teams seek to make it back-to-back wins in the division.

Newcastle had lost five in a row in the top flight before recording a somewhat surprising 2-0 away victory over Everton on Saturday thanks to a Callum Wilson brace, while Palace were 1-0 winners at home to Wolves on the same day, regaining some momentum of their own after an uninspiring set of results.

Eberechi Eze netted for Roy Hodgson’s team in that Palace win, and supporters of the club will hope the exciting young midfielder can be influential again at St James’ Park.

What is the team news?

Newcastle captain and defender Jamaal Lascelles will miss up to three weeks of action after picking up a hamstring issue against Everton at the weekend. Federico Fernandez is also out of the Magpies’ back line.

Palace, meanwhile, saw James McCarthy injured at the weekend, though there is still a chance the midfielder is involved here. Jeffrey Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins are all missing from the Eagles’ defence, but the good news for Palace fans is that new signing Jean-Philippe Mateta could make his debut tonight.

Newcastle: Darlow; Manquillo, Schar, Clark, Lewis; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, M. Longstaff, Saint-Maximin; Wilson

Prediction
