Newcastle team news

For once, the Newcastle team news is positive. In the last few weeks, there have been some significant developments with Sean Longstaff, Dan Burn and Callum Wilson all returning from injury - The trio are fit to start in this match.

Nick Pope won't play in this match, so Martin Dubravka will play in this one. Let's just hope he doesn't face any shots on target...

Defender Sven Botman is close to a return, but he isn't expected to be back for Newcastle vs Fulham. Kieran Trippier is also unavailable for selection as he is suspended, which may benefit Eddie Howe to give him some rest.

Joe Willock is injured and won't be available for this match, neither will fellow midfielder Sandro Tonali who is still suspended from football and Elliot Anderson who nurses a long-term injury.

In the attack, wide-men Harvey Barnes and Jacob Murphy remain injured, so they won't play in this match.

Fulham team news

The Fulham team news is much easier to cover as they only have three players on the treatment table. As per Premier Injuries, Adama Traore and Issa Diop are currently being assessed amid a potential return date for this game. Willian hasn't been given a return date, so it looks like he'll miss this match.

Newcastle vs Fulham score prediction

Newcastle have to bounce back as they risk entering a turmoil in form but I must say that Fulham's scoring record of late does scare me, given our defensive woes. I don't mean to be pessimistic, but I'm going to predict a high scoring draw of Newcastle 3-3 Fulham. I hope I'm wrong.
