Premier League Preview for Newcastle United v Norwich City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Newcastle United has had a rather inconsistent season thus far. The best string of form they have so far has been a draw with two wins. At the moment they are on a run of form with back to back wins over Chelsea at home and away to Tottenham. Newcastle has yet to score more than two goals per game, but they have scored two goals in each of their last three home EPL games.
Norwich has been even more inconsistent than Newcastle. After losing back to back games to Chelsea and Arsenal by a combined score of 7-2 they managed a 0-0 draw to Cardiff. This was then followed by a 7-0 away loss to Manchester City. They were finally able to turn it around against West Ham in week 11 with a 3-1 home win. Norwich has struggled at both ends of the pitch in allowing 21 goals but only scoring nine.
My prediction is for a Newcastle United win. They have looked good recently and seem to have a game plan going out there. They could struggle against Norwich since they will be the favorites and their past two games featured them as underdogs. Norwich did look better in their match prior to the international break and could get a result if they set themselves up well against a Newcastle team that can become stagnant at times.
Betting Odds: Newcastle win: 1.73-1.80; Draw: 3.71-3.87; Norwich win: 4.76-5.00
Form: Newcastle (L, W, D, L, W, W) Norwich (W, L, L, D, L, W)
