Talk of extra energy, a different atmosphere and an unprecedent disappointment. That was the turn of events in Newcastle’s first game since the takeover. With the new owner watching from the stands accompanied by his two daughters, Newcastle had every reason to fight. However, it wasn’t the time, let’s call it a right atmosphere at the wrong time. With the loss against a disciplined Tottenham, Newcastle will feel the need to change the turn of events. They are currently winless, but they showed their old form – lastly witnessed 14yrs ago when Newcastle was a feared side. Their opponents have been an average side and using the same performance from Tottenham’s encounter would easily give The Magpies a win.

We admired Newcastle’s weekend pressing and high intensity football but that doesn’t rule out Palace’s defensive and attacking capabilities. With the veteran attacker, Benteke, still in top form, we can expect Partrick Viera’s side to capitalize on their home turf privilege and get all three points. However, that will not easily materialize since Newcastle have something special going on. The fans are back and we can feel their urge to impress their new Saudi investor. It could go either way, but a draw for Crystal Palace vs Newcastle match would be quite safe.
