CRY Vs NEW Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two laggard attacking setups take on each other to begin proceedings in gameweek 10.
After a couple of wins in the opening exchanges of the Premier League as they punched above their weight to impress, Newcastle United have been quick to nosedive in the league. Losing all the shine and glamour surrounding them in the early part of the 2020-21 season, the club with a measly four wins in five encounters finds itself slumped in 15th spot.
The 2-0 defeat to Chelsea the last time around was not only the side’s second defeat on the bounce but now leaves them without a goal in their last couple of matches. A lack of goals has been the biggest predicament for the club this term with no one apart from striker Callum Wilson looking interested to provide anything noteworthy up the park.
It’s a predicament which looks set to cost the club another contest. Up against a Crystal Palace defence known to oust the best of attacks to the sword especially at home, Newcastle United could easily see this clash ending up in a third defeat in succession for the side.
This fixture will be determined by the solitary goal, one Crystal Palace should manage to score in their favour.

The only reason Newcastle United find themselves above the relegation zone at the moment is due to Karl Darlow. Pulling off the most number of saves in Europe this season, he’s not only perfectly filled in for the injured Martin but has shown he has the calibre to take over permanent goal-keeping duties for the team.
With their entire backline back after spending time on the sidelines due to injuries, Crystal Palace look to be back at their staunch and stringent self defensively. This is a club which has turned the best of teams cold as a sheet, a backline which has made a meal of a magnitude of attacks over the year.
And with Newcastle United hardly making for a daunting attacking setup, a cleansheet for the hosts could easily be on the cards today. It sees us opt for CBs Chiekhou Kouyate and Scott Dan with both who having scored the one goal.
Patrick van Aanholt will complete the trio of selection from the side while Frederico Fernandez will find a place in our team from the visiting club.
All the bruhaha surrounding Jeff Hendrick’s arrival at Newcastle United has been quick to die down. After his one goal and one assist debut, he’s failed to offer anything of note to se him go out of favour.
However, injuries should see him being brought back for this one and his well endowed skill set will see him retain his place in our team.
Crystal Palace on the other hand will be represented by a trio of picks, one which begins with the selection of Andros Townsend who has the two assists, the most by anyone at the club. James McArthur and Jairo Riedewald, the pairing in midfield will be roped into our club owing to their ability to close the play and tame attacking plays.
With Zaha currently under the weather, Jordan Ayew will be tasked with the responsibility of scoring for Crystal Palace. The side’s top scorer last season, he is more than adept at taking on that responsibility to see him line up for us.
Scorer of over 50% of his side’s goals with the 6 strikes, striker Callum Wilson from Newcastle United was a must have pick for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The one assist he has this term sees Ayew be our striker for the day while Wilson is the vice-captain.
Darlow, Frederico, Kouyate, Dann, Patrick, Townsend, Jeff, James, Jairo, Wilson, Ayew
