Graeme Jones will take charge of Newcastle against Crystal Palace following Steve Bruce’s departure on Wednesday.

Newcastle travel to London in search of their first win of the campaign, aiming to secure it at the tenth time of asking.

Jones, who arrived on Tyneside in January, will have some tough calls to make when he decides on his Newcastle United side that will take to the field at Selhurst Park.

Will he try and stamp his own mark on the team, or build upon the foundations laid during the previous nine games played so far this season?

Here, we have predicted Newcastle United’s starting XI which includes a slight formation change to a 4-1-2-1-2 system.

Do you agree with our picks? Who do you think will play for Newcastle on Saturday?
