After interviewing several potential candidates for the position, Crystal Palace owner has settled for Neil Warnock and this experienced manager is now setting about recruiting new players at Selhurst Park ahead of the transfer window closing.
Wilfried Zaha is set to return to the London club on loan from Manchester United, with more new faces set to appear, although it might take time for Warnock to bed them down and Newcastle look ripe to land victory on Saturday.
United were the better team when drawing 0-0 at Villa Park and they played pretty well when losing 2-0 at home to Manchester City. Therefore, the 3/4 with Paddy Power that the Tyneside club win this match looks interesting.
Siem de Jong should be back in the starting XI for this game, with Emmanuel Riviere and Yoan Gouffran operating nicely in tandem and ready to score some goals for Newcastle.
Palace’s 3-1 reverse at home to West Ham last weekend illustrates that the lack of leadership is affecting the Eagles and Warnock might have a job on his hands to keep this team out of the bottom three.
