Newcastle United will play Fulham FC, another English Premier League rival, on Saturday, December 16. By Indian Standard Time, the match will start at 8.30 PM. St. James Park, the home field of Newcastle United, will serve as the venue for the same.
Both teams are making every effort to meet and exceed the fans' expectations. Newcastle United is currently ranked seventh in the table, while Fulham FC is ranked tenth. They will play their 17th game of the season this coming Saturday, which means they are very nearly halfway through.
Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United's rivals, recently defeated them, and this is not a promising sign for a team that has the support of both the community and their financiers. The top bookmakers in India have great odds with them.
Both teams are on a scoring spree in the Premier League
The betting tip is...
Both teams to score a goal
Newcastle United has been playing at its best recently, especially since Saudi Arabia took over and Eddie Howe was named manager.
With the recent additions of Bruno Guimaraes, Aleksander Isak, and Harvey Barnes, the team now has a strong posture. But injuries are making them uncomfortable. They currently have eight injuries, including Sven Botman and other important players. But that doesn't change them in any way.
The team's newest member, Sandro Tonali, has been suspended due to suspected betting. Their top scorers are Anthony Gordon (six goals, three assists) and Alexander Isak (nine goals).
Their Keeper, Nick Pope, who is currently injured, has made 67 saves and conceded just 19, which is a great number. With this, his saves-per-goal ratio is 3.5.
Nick Pope is likely to sit out because of injury.
Predicted Lineup: Martin Dubravka, Fabian Schar, Jamal Lascelles, Lewis Hall, Keiran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton, Lewis Miley, Anthony Gordon, Miguel Almiron, Aleksander Isak
Fulham is currently ranked tenth in the English Premier League. With three draws, seven losses, and six victories, they have twenty-one points overall. They have scored 26 goals and conceded 26 more.
With three goals and four assists, Harry Wilson leads the team in scoring, followed by Willian, who has three goals. Antoniee Robinson leads the team in shots on goal thus far, with 9.6% of them on target.
The absence of Adama Traore from Fulham's attacking lineup is felt. Furthermore, Fulham is seeing some of its best play. They have won three and lost two of their past five games. To make their season valuable, Marco Silva and his group must play to the best of their abilities.
We do not expect changes in the lineup except for Harisson Reed, who is likely to start off the bench due to a performance issue
Predicted Lineup: Marek Rodak, Timothy Castagne, Calvin Bassey, Tim Ream, Antoniee Robinson, Joao Palhinha, Alex Iwobi, Harrison Reed, Andreas Peiera, Willian, Raul Giminez
In the face of a challenging injury situation, Newcastle exhibits resilience under an exceptional manager. Despite aiming for table-topping glory, they grapple with a form struggle, having lost two and drawn one in their last five outings.
Contrastingly, Fulham rides high on a positive momentum streak, netting five goals in their recent victories against Nottingham Forest and West Ham.
With three wins in their last four games and a whopping 16 goals, Fulham stands as a formidable force, setting the stage for an intriguing clash.
