Newcastle enter this game vs Crystal Palace with a good defensive record, having not conceded a Premier League goal in seven and a half hours, a streak that they will be looking to extend today.
One of the big talking points for The Magpies is the shock recovery of Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, who is set to start just a week after limping off in tears during a match against Fulham.
This is a big boost for the team, who are chasing a top four spot this season. There are no other changes to the side that beat Fulham 1-0, with matchwinner Alexander Isak remaining on the bench.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have made four changes to the side that drew 1-1 to Manchester United. Late hero Michael Olise, who scored the last-gasp equalizer with a devastating free-kick, is one of the four players dropped to the bench in a surprise move by Patrick Vieira.
Ebere Eze will start in attack in place of Jean-Philippe Mateta, while Will Hughes makes way for Jeffrey Schlupp. The other changes see Joel Ward start at right-back in place of Nathaniel Clyne, who drops to the bench.
Head-to-head, Crystal Palace have won only two of their 11 Premier League home games against Newcastle (D4, L5). This will be the third meeting of the season between these two teams in all competitions, with the previous two ending in goalless draws.
