Newcastle United take on Crystal Palace on Saturday evening knowing a win would see them leapfrog Manchester United into third place in the Premier League table.

However, to do that, they will have to overcome a stubborn Palace side that demonstrated their resilience on Wednesday night as they held Erik Ten Hag’s side to a draw at Selhurst Park.

Michael Olise’s stunning late free-kick earned Patrick Vieira’s side a precious point as they aim to steer clear of being sucked into any relegation danger.

For Newcastle though, Saturday represents an opportunity for back-to-back Premier League wins following goalless draws with Leeds United and Arsenal in the league to end 2022 and start 2023.

Here, we take a look at the starting side Howe could pick to face Crystal Palace at the weekend.
