Eagles can reward home fans' patience against Newcastle
Magpies are enduring a slow start to the season
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.

No fresh injuries are reported but Christian Benteke, Scott Dann, Connor Wickham and Pape Souare are ruled out.
Jamaal Lascelles (ankle) is a doubt but Jonjo Shelvey (thigh) could make his first appearance in over a month.
Newcastle have lost nine of their last 11 fixtures.
