Newcastle, who currently sit in ninth place in the league table, take on bottom side Crystal Palace at St James Park.
Rafa Benitez’ side have picked up two wins in their last five games but also held onto a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the beginning of the month.
Crystal Palace were without a goal or a point before they produced a shock result against Chelsea last weekend.
Wilfried Zaha’s return inspired a stunning 2-1 victory over reigning champions Chelsea as they picked up their first league win and second victory in all competitions under Roy Hodgson.
Can they come up with the goods this weekend against the Championship title holders?
Manager Rafa Benitez while addressing the Press at a pre-match conference says;
“We have a good team with young players and they are improving. I am positive in terms of what we can achieve.
“The fans, the club, the potential, is massive. If we do well on the pitch, everything is easier.
“Crystal Palace have played some good football. They did really well (against Chelsea) so they will have confidence, but no game is easy.”
A resurgent Crystal Palace side beat defending champions Chelsea 2-1, at Stamford Bridge last weekend and are hoping to repeat the same feat when they visit Saint James Park on Saturday.
