Crystal Palace manager Oliver Glasner has given his thoughts on Newcastle United before of Wednesday’s match at Selhurst Park.

The Magpies will be feeling fresh for the midweek Premier League meeting after not playing since April 13th, when they were thrashed 4-0 by Tottenham Hotspur.

Crystal Palace has played twice since we last booted the ball. Last Sunday, they defeated Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield, followed by a 5-2 win over West Ham United.

The Eagles have already won back-to-back games for the first time this season, and they will look to make it a hat trick at Newcastle’s expense.

What Crystal Palace expect from Newcastle United on Wednesday

Oliver Glasner, who talked to Crystal Palace’s official website following their emphatic 5-2 victory over West Ham on Sunday, is absolutely expecting this.

The 49-year-old has spoken about the upcoming game against Newcastle and warned that it could be a difficult game for his team.

“The players, how they started the game [vs West Ham] in the first 30 minutes, were really amazing,” he told the BBC.

“It was enjoyable to see for a manager. It was a terrific performance, but the game is already underway. The game has ended, we have three points, and we have won two games in a row for the first time this season.

“Now it’s the third game in a row versus Newcastle [that we’re striving for], and this will be a tough test. They’ll be fresh, so we might be in the same scenario as West Ham today [having played in midweek], a little tired legs. Of course, we take a lot of positive things from the game today, but stay focused for the next challenges.”

Fixture list could help Newcastle

As Glasner suggests, Newcastle should be fresh for Wednesday’s encounter. They won’t have played in over a week, so Howe’s players should have plenty of time to recharge.

It’s an unusual occurrence for the Magpies, given how hectic this season has been owing to Newcastle’s Champions League and domestic cup commitments.

It could give Howe’s squad an advantage, but Glasner will want his teammates to build on their momentum and continue riding that wave. They’ve picked up six points when they presumably expected zero, and they should be confident when Newcastle visits Selhurst Park.

However, Newcastle’s recent away record against Palace isn’t particularly impressive. Our last two excursions to Selhurst Park ended in draws.

However, we won there in 2020, when the Premier League was played behind closed doors. Steve Bruce’s side won 2-0 because to goals from Callum Wilson and Joelinton, who was still regarded a forward at the time.

Our last Premier League win away to Palace was in December 2013. Alan Pardew was the manager, and he oversaw a 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa, and a Danny Gabbidon own goal.
