Newcastle United and Fulham will face each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match between the Magpies and the Cottagers will be held at St. James’ Park and is scheduled to kick off at 2pm UK time on Sunday.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United are having a wonderful season in the Premier League and could end up in the top four. The Magpies narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship at the end of last season, but things have dramatically changed for manager Eddie Howe and his players this campaign.

The Magpies are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 35 points from 18 matches. Newcastle are nine points behind leaders Arsenal, who have played 17 games. While it is unlikely that Howe’s side will challenge Arsenal and defending champions Manchester City for the Premier League title this season, they could very much

Newcastle will head into the match against Fulham at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on the back of a 2-0 win against Leicester City at home in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. It was a brilliant win for the Magpies and saw them bounce back from a shock 2-1 loss at the hands of League One club Sheffield Wednesday away from home in the third round of the F Cup.

Team News:

Nick Pope will continue to stay in goal for Newcastle United. Callum Wilson is back fit, and the England international striker should lead the line for the Magpies against Fulham. Joelinton and Miguel Almiron should start as well.

Fulham

Like Newcastle United, Fulham are also doing extremely well in the Premier League at the moment. The Cottagers won promotion from the Championship at the end of last season, and there were doubts whether the London club will be able to survive in the top flight of English football. So far, Fulham have answers their critics in style.

Fulham are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 28 points from 18 matches. The London club are seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United and could end up in a UEFA Europa Conference League spot in the table.

The Cottagers will take on Chelsea at Craven Cottage in the London derby on Thursday evening. Fulham will head into the Premier League game against the Blues on the back of a 2-0 victory over Hull City away from home in the third round of the FA Cup. It followed a 1-0 victory over Leicester City away from home at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League.

Team News:

Aleksandar Mitrovic will return from suspension for the match against his former club Newcastle United. The Serbian striker will be suspended for the London derby against Chelsea on Thursday evening. Daniel James and Bobby Decordova-Reid could feature in the Fulham attack as well. Willian is also set to start against the Magpies.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 11 goals and given one assist in 15 Premier League matches for Fulham.
  • Miguel Almiron has scored 9 goals and provided one assist in 18 Premier League matches.
  • Newcastle have won 4 of their last 6 Premier League games.
  • Fulham have won their last 3 Premier League matches.
  • Newcastle have conceded 32 goals in 18 Premier League games.

Conclusion

Both Newcastle United and Fulham are doing well at the moment and are in form. Playing at home will give the Magpies a huegeadvantage, and Eddie Howe’s side are also very mean and strong at the back. While Fulham do have the firepower to hurt the Magpies, it is hard to see Newcastle drop all three points in front of their own fans. It is very likely that Howe’s side will eke out a narrow win in what should be a very competitive and entertaining match.

Prediction: Newcastle United to win 2-1

Best Odds: 13/2
