Faustino Asprilla sends message on Twitter ahead of Newcastle game

Newcastle Utd - Gate

Newcastle United will take on Norwich City in the Premier League today.

Faustino Asprilla has predicted on social networking site Twitter that Newcastle United will win against Norwich City this afternoon.

The Magpies will take on fellow relegation candidates Norwich away from home at Carrow Road in the Premier League shortly.

Former Newcastle forward Asprilla has taken to Twitter to rally the players and the fans, and has backed Rafael Benitez’s side to pick up all three points from the encounter.

Newcastle will head into the Premier League game against Norwich on the back of a 1-1 draw with Sunderland at St. James’ Park in the league.

The Magpies are second from bottom in the standings at the moment and are in real danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season.

Norwich are just above the bottom three, but the Canaries are still very much in danger of getting relegated.

Today’s match does not promise to be one full of quality, but it should be a fiercely competitive game of football with a few goals.
