3pm Saturday

Crystal Palace fans are still waiting for their first home points and goals of the season and their patience is set to be rewarded by a victory over Newcastle at Selhurst Park.

Roy Hodgson is a vastly experienced manager and knows Palace will need to improve on the performance at Huddersfield last Saturday, when a 1-0 win flattered the visiting side.

However, the Eagles are usually more attack-minded on home soil and look value at odds-against to defeat the Magpies, who are under pressure after a slow start to the campaign.

Recommendation
Crystal Palace
2pts 6-5 Betfair
