Newcastle Stand

Newcastle United will face Norwich City at St. James’ Park in the Premier League this afternoon.

Newcastle United will be looking to register their first win of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign when they take on Norwich City at home this afternoon.

The Magpies are at the foot of the league table at the moment with just three points from eight matches.

Steve McClaren’s side will head into this match on the back of a 6-1 defeat to Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Norwich are 15th in the league table at the moment with nine points from eight games.

The Canaries, who got promoted from the Championship at the end of last season, are doing better than expected in the Premier League.
