It’s a quick-fire return to Premier League action for Newcastle United as they prepare to welcome Crystal Palace to St James’ Park.
Newcastle’s home form has been exemplary of late, with only title-chasing Liverpool enjoying a better time of things on their own patch over the last six games. Indeed, Sunday’s win over Leicester was as dramatic as they come and created yet another memorable moment in the club’s new era, with star man Bruno Guimaraes netting in the last minute.
Palace, meanwhile, have reaped the rewards of their own rebuild this season as Patrick Vieira continues to impress. One of the most upwardly-mobile sides in the Premier League, the Eagles will be hurting after a rather meek loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The Premier League game is scheduled for 7.45pm BST kick-off time on Wednesday April 20, 2022.
St James’ Park in Newcastle will host.

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace team news
Eddie Howe has confirmed there are no fresh injury concerns following the win over Leicester, although Ryan Fraser is set for another scan on his hamstring injury. Miguel Almiron came into the side for Sunday’s win despite a hint Fraser could play after limping off against Wolves.
Javier Manquillo was another who missed the Leicester win through illness but was not mentioned in Howe’s press conference.
For Palace, they will likely welcome Conor Gallagher back into the starting lineup after the midfielder was unable to play against parent club Chelsea at Wembley.
Newcastle vs Crystal Palace prediction
Palace have certainly been one of the surprises of the season but, at this stage, it’s hard to look past anyone beating Newcastle at home.
Newcastle to win 2-1.
