Free EPL Pick Newcastle vs Norwich
14th placed Newcastle host bottom placed Norwich as they attempt to close the 4-point gap between themselves and the top 6.
Newcastle are riding a 6-game unbeaten streak in all competitions and 3 in the league as they defeated strong opposition in Chelsea as well as got draws against Wolves and Everton but only after suffering 3 consecutive losses to United, Everton and Leicester. Considering the above, their home form is quite remarkable as they have lost only 3 at St James' Park and will be favourites against a Norwich side that failed to carry the momentum from last season's Championship triumph and are languishing at dead-bottom.
When Norwich City pulled off the unthinkable and beat the seemingly undefeatable defending champions Manchester City at the start of the Premier League season, nobody expected them to be where they are now - almost certain to be relegated back to the Championship, which they won last season, sitting 6 points below the 2nd worst team. They have garnered only 5 points from 12 away visits; they have come from their last 3 away games without a single point and have won just 1 of their last 11 league games, with 4 of their 5 draws this campaign coming during that period. They might, however, head into this contest with some confidence having eliminated Burnley from the FA Cup last weekend.

Last Time Out
When these sides met for the reverse fixture in August, Norwich sealed a 3-1 win in their first home game since returning to England's top flight inspired by a Teemu Pukki hat-trick with the Magpies saving their blushes in added time with a Jonjo Shelvey equaliser.
