After the disappointment of a narrow defeat to Burnley (after a dodgy decision too), Steve Bruce and the Magpies will be looking for a return to winning form at home against Roy Hodgson’s wounded Eagles on Saturday.

Injuries and Suspensions

It is no secret that Crystal Palace have had something of an injury crisis in recent times with Newcastle United old boys Patrick van Aanholt and Andros Townsend out, as well as Jeffrey Schlupp, Gary Cahill (knee) and Jairo Riedewald, with Mamadou Sakho still suspended for a straight red card.

Will the Blades chop the Magpies down to size?

After an excellent and somewhat unexpected draw against champions Man City last Saturday, Steve Bruce and the lads travel to Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane on Thursday evening to face Chris Wilder’s Blades on their home turf. For a newly promoted team Sheffield United have done well to be be in the top half of the Premier League without a star studded team, the South Yorkshire side have been a bit like a Geoffrey Boycott of football this season, generally unspectacular but stubborn, obstinate and hard to beat.

Joelinton

After such a poor performance against Norwich, even the most optimistic fan would be forgiven for thinking that the Toon might be lucky to even pick up one point against Champions League finalists Tottenham on their own turf, let alone three as they did, with Joelinton’s well taken goal separating the sides. However, does the solid performance against the Champions League finalists mean redemption for Steve Bruce?

After two lost games using Steve Bruce’s preferred 3-5-2 formation it was obvious that things weren’t working and at the start it seemed that Bruce’s team had come out with more attacking intent this time with a formation which looked more like an attacking 3-4-3 with Joelinton leading the line alongside Almiron and Saint-Maximin.

With VAR once again making the headlines at the Manchester City’s Etihad and Tottenham being handed another get out of jail free card, it has without question been the talking point from last Saturday’s heavyweight encounter.

With the defending champions registering no less than thirty efforts on goal and Tottenham managing just three, the stats will point to the fact that City should have won the game at an absolute canter.

At the same time, if there was ever a game that proved that it is not all about the stats surrounding the game and more about the final number of goals that were scored, then Saturday’s evening offering was the one. (more…)
