Winless in their last three league fixtures, they have won five out of the last six at their home ground. Last time out they were torn apart by Manchester United, this is a game they will hope to come out on top.
Newcastle are in a slump right now, losing their last four games. It would do wonders for Rafa Benitez’s campaign if he could pick up a win.
