Live coverage of Newcastle versus Crystal Palace from the St James’ Park, including all built, predicted teams, confirmed team news, live game updates and analysis

Hello and welcome to FootballLondons live coverage of Newcastle United v Crystal Palace from the St James’ Park

Both teams are entering this game at a climax after winning their games over the weekend

Newcastle beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park, while Palace defeated Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves at Selhurst Park

Zaha looks frustrated. He is lying on the floor, pulling the tape from his socks He will be in hiding with Townsend set against his old club

The attacker appears to be holding his hamstring. He’s still running, but definitely one to watch out for

Fraser defeats Clyne again and the right-back is booked for trying to knock him down

Eze would do really well to keep it in the middle under the challenge of two players

Zaha finds the left-back whose shot is deflected for a corner. But Batshuayi was offside during the build-up – an all too regular occurrence

Not Palace’s best performance but good fight and determination to be back after finding each other in the game after just 70 seconds

Wilson falls to the edge of the penalty area under the slightest contact from Ayew and wins a free kick

Almiron’s efforts are pinching the wall and bar on the way behind it. It’s a corner and Hive has a free header, but it’s just wide

Newcastle is in, Wilson threads it through for Fraser when Dann slips, but Guaita is quick out to tighten the angle and gets an elbow to Fraser’s attempted dink

Van Aanholt has a lot of fun on the left, but this time his cut-back Ayew can’t find a real source of danger for Palace

Jordan Ayew was overthrown three times in about five minutes, and Shelvey goes into the book to attack the palace attacker

Palace played a third Clyne finds Batshuayi behind, but the striker can’t take it on – the ball falls on Zaha, who converts, but the flag goes up

It’s a different one! Ayew wins a free kick by the corner flag, and Eze delivers exactly that Cahill takes a header home

Van Aanholt’s cut will be blocked to the very edge of the area where Riedewald steps on before achieving a powerful but controlled home performance What a destination!

Newcastle comes closer again. Fraser puts the ball in from the left and then gets a distraction

Wilson sticks out a heel and almost hits with a Scorpio kick, but the ball is safe over Guaita’s latte

It is evicted to Van Aanholt, who finds Batshuayi. He plays Eze down the wing and Ayew finds a first ball in the box, but his header is blocked for a corner

Newcastle almost makes it in pairs. A couple of crosses from the right and Hendrick gets the shot in the corner just behind the far post

It looked like Guaita would have covered that by the time it got there, but it was a really bad start to Palace

A bad start for Palace Newcastle has the ball in the lower left corner and the ball comes to Wilson, who nods at Shelvey on the edge of the box – his half volley flies into the lower corner past Guaita

Roy Hodgson spoke to BT Sport before the game and gave an update on today’s team

“It’s a light burden [on McCarthy] so we won’t have him for a while, I’m afraid The same thing happened to Joel Ward who came

“McArthur didn’t recover in time and Cheikh Kouyate is only really rested because he felt a bit of his groin as the game progressed so I didn’t want to put him into practice with Gary Cahill

“So we’re a bit small in midfield at the moment, in our positions, and of course we still miss Schlupp and Tomkins

“So we’re a little bit wounded, but we’ll get these players back soon and it’s still a strong team that I brought out tonight”

It’s a big night for Jairo Riedewald Roy Hodgson said yesterday that the midfielder has been pushing for a start for the past few weeks despite being kept off the grid by Luka Milivojevic and James McArthur

With him in a 4-2-3-1, he has a chance to show that he can be the progressive passerby who can help connect the palace’s scrimmage

There are only seven Palace substitutes on the bench tonight – a reflection of the injury problems they are facing

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Clyne, Cahill, Dann, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, Riedewald; Ayew, Eze, Zaha; Batshuayi
