Current form — Newcastle v. Norwich
Newcastle struggling for results
Newcastle will enter the match hoping to see the back of some rather disappointing results in recent matches.

This time 3-3 against Brentford, before going down in a 2-0 defeat against Arsenal.
Norwich hoping for more
Norwich look to build on their current momentum with another positive result. Norwich look well suited to take on any opponent at the moment, as their last 3 matches saw them gaining 7 points. They ran out 1-2 and 2-1 winners against Brentford and Southampton, respectively. Their winning streak came to an end against Wolves, who claimed a point in a 0-0 draw.
Form on both sides make this seem like a relatively equal contest on paper. Newcastle have grabbed the role as fairly big favourites, though, with the bookies offering odds of 1.90 for a win. Should your betting strategy prefer a higher price, the odds for an away win are 3.80. Adding a draw to the accumulator will get you odds 3.75.

Primary goal getter

The visitors will be looking to in-form Teemu Pukki to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. Teemu Pukki netted 2 goals for Norwich in their latest matches.
