Did you know?

Newcastle are looking to complete their first league double over Crystal Palace since 2013/14, following their 2-0 win at Selhurst Park earlier this season. 

All 10 of Callum Wilson’s Premier League goals for Newcastle have come in the second half. He is the first player to score his first 10 goals for a club all in the second half, and only the third player to score his first 10 goals in a season in the second half, after Matt Le Tissier in 1994/95 and Ashley Barnes in 2018/19.

Palace have kept three clean sheets in their last five PL matches, having kept just one in their previous 24 contests in the competition. 

Palace striker Jordan Ayew has set up a goal in each of his last two PL appearances, registering as many assists in those encounters as in his previous 54 matches.
