Rolando Aarons posts nostalgic tweet ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Newcastle face the south London side in the Premier League this weekend.

Rolando Aarons has taken to Twitter with a nostalgic post ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace this weekend.

Aarons netted his first professional goal against Crystal Palace during a 3-3 draw last season and really made an impression for the first time on Tyneside.

The 20-year-old has endured a turbulent time since, however, with his fledgling career plagued by injury trouble.

Newcastle will therefore head to Crystal Palace to face former boss Alan Pardew without the young winger among their ranks.

Needless to say, it has been a tough time for Newcastle as a whole of late. And facing Pardew might not exactly be the ideal scenario when it comes to bouncing back for Steve McClaren's men.

Poor results and performances have reportedly led to heated exchanges at the Magpies' traiing ground. Palace, however, are enjoying a very smooth season so far indeed.

How will Newcastle fare against Palace and will they be able to sort their defensive problems out against the Eagles?

Will McClaren play Fabricio Coloccini, meanwhile, and will it make a difference either way?
