Newcastle United will be hoping that a trip to the capital will see a much needed first win of the season.

Steve Bruce is no longer in the dugout for the visitors after his torrid spell as Head Coach finally came to an end this week and interim boss Graeme Jones will be hoping to inspire his boyhood club to victory over Crystal Palace.

United's new owners watched on as their new side fell to a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last time out.

The Eagles have been comfortably more impressive than Newcastle so far this season and their 14th place doesn't tell the full story.

95th minute goals for Brighton and Hove Albion and more recently Arsenal saw them leave both games with just one point.

Team News 

Palace don't have too many injury concerns to contend with ahead of them welcoming Newcastle to Selhurst Park tomorrow.

Wilfried Zaha missed the 2-2 draw at the Emirates but unfortunately for the Toon, he looks likely to return to the side for this game.

Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson remain unavailable for the hosts.

Jonjo Shelvey is unavailable for this game after he marked his return to action with two daft yellow cards in the space of 11 minutes.

Other than that, United's injury issues are looking more positive with Martin Dubravka, Paul Dummett and Elliot Anderson all closer to making a return to the side.

Tomorrow's trip to Selhurst Park will come too soon for the trio.

  • Previous meetings

The last time that the two club's met saw Palace win all three points in what was somewhat a smash and grab at St. James' Park.

Shelvey had given the hosts the lead in just the 2nd minute but a mad five minutes for the Toon allowed goals from Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill to completely change the course of the game.

The reverse fixture was a particularly poor game of football that arguably neither side deserved to win.

However, two late strikes for the Magpies coming via Callum Wilson and Joelinton ensured they were the side to snatch maximum points.

  • Ones to watch

If as expected Zaha makes his return to the side then he will of course be a man that Newcastle will have to watch closely.

Quick and direct, Zaha is a nightmare for any defence never mind the leakiest defence in the whole division.

Summer signing Odsonne Edouard was on target last time out and the 23-year old will be eager to get back amongst the goals.

His strike partner Christian Benteke is usually a handful and will be another one of Palace's attacking options looking to exploit the gaping holes in the Toon's backline.

For Newcastle, the danger men are fairly self explanatory.

Callum Wilson came back into the side and found himself on the scoresheet.

The England striker has three goals in just four games this campaign and his ice cool manner in front of goal means he only needs one chance.

Allan Saint-Maximin is another obvious one, the Frenchman seems to have added more end product to his game this campaign which has seen an improvement in his goals and assists numbers.

You feel that both men will have to be on song for the Magpies to record their first win of the season.

  • Predicted Lineups

Crystal Palace: Guaita; Ward, Anderson, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Milivojevic, McArthur; Edouard, Benteke, Zaha

Newcastle United: Darlow; Manquillo, Lascelles, Fernandez, Ritchie, Hayden, Willock, S. Longstaff, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Wilson
