Michael Owen predicts Crystal Palace v Newcastle

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Crystal Palace will take on Newcastle United at Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Crystal Palace will win against Newcastle United this weekend.

Palace will host the Magpies at Selhurst Park in London in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and former Newcastle striker Owen believes that the home team will pick up all three points.

“The Eagles were bitterly disappointing on Monday night losing by the solitary goal to a well-organised Sunderland outfit and North-East rivals Newcastle arrive in South London after a similarly disappointing performance at the weekend,” the former England international wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Magpies boss Steve McClaren is the new 4/1 second favourite with BetVictor in the betting for the ‘Next Premier League Manager to Leave his Post’ after being turned over 3-0 on home soil by Leicester City.

“Given Newcastle’s recent form away from home, only winning one of their last 13 PL games away from St James’ Park, they may struggle against former boss Alan Pardew.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Crystal Palace to win at 8/11 with BetVictor.”

Palace will head into the Premier League game against Newcastle at Selhurst Park on the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Sunderland.

The Eagles are 10th in the league table at the moment with 19 points from 13 matches.

Meanwhile, Newcastle currently find themselves 17th in the standings with 10 points from 13 matches.

The Magpies are just a point above the bottom three and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

Steve McClaren’s side will head into Saturday afternoon’s match on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Leicester City at St. James’ Park.
