Newcastle – Crystal Palace: Steve Bruce’s 15th-place Magpies will have the rare chance to claim back-to-back Premier League victories when they host the 13th-place Eagles at St. James’ Park on Tuesday (Watch live at 3:15 pm am ET, on Peacock Premium).
Newcastle knocked off Everton 2-0 on Saturday, thanks to a late brace from striker Callum Wilson — his team-leading 9th and 10th goals of the season — to put a bit more distance between themselves and the relegation zone. As things currently stand, Newcastle are eight points (and three places) clear of 18th-place Fulham. However, it’s not all good news for Newcastle, as captain Jamaal Lascelles is set to miss “a good few weeks” with a hamstring injury, just as the squad was getting close to full-strength after being decimated by COVID-19 in recent months.
On a similar not, injuries are the biggest worry for Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace at the moment, with as many as nine first-team regular either listed as out or questionable for Tuesday’s clash.

A counter-attacking contest between two sides that aren’t particularly sure-handed at the back and lack the overall quality (outside of a couple star men on either side) to put away the chances they’ll find themselves unexpected afforded. Newcastle 1-1 Palace.
