Confirmed Newcastle team v Crystal Palace – Wilson, Shelvey, Almiron, Hendrick all start

1 year ago

The Newcastle team v Crystal Palace has just been confirmed.

Newcastle kicking off their match at Selhurst Park on Friday night at 8pm.

The Magpies looking to bounce back from poor defeats to both Southampton and Chelsea.

The confirmed Newcastle team v Crystal Palace:

Darlow, Manquillo, Fernandez, Clark, Lewis, Shelvey, Hendrick, S Longstaff, Almiron, Joelinton, Wilson

Four changes…


Shelvey, Hendrick, Almiron, Wilson


Lascelles, Hayden, Murphy, Saint-Maximin

Steve Bruce had said before the match that there were at least three Newcastle United players and / or staff self-isolating, including one first team regular.

Judging from today’s selection and recent training images, it looks like Isaac Hayden and Emil Krafth could be in that trio self-isolating.

Steve Bruce apparently reverting to a back four, although until the team takes to the pitch, always difficult / impossible to guess what is in his head…


Gillespie, M Longstaff, Schar, Ritchie, Yedlin, Murphy, Anderson
