The Magpies host Patrick Vieira’s side at St. James Park tomorrow evening.
Newcastle United, Eddie Howe has issued fresh new injury update ahead of his team’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace tomorrow evening.
The Magpies are looking to make it three wins in a row after victories over Wolves and Leicester with some six players are still sidelined.
Last time out, United won all three points after a brace from January signing Bruno Guimaraes, with the Brazilian international’s late winner coming five minutes into stoppage time.
Howe’s squad still has Liverpool and Manchester City to play before finishing the season against Arsenal and Burnley, with only six games remaining in the 21/22 season.
Kieran Trippier is expected to be out until the end of the month, with Magpies fans hoping to see the England international return to the first-team fold following his foot injury.

This 58m Deal Would Delight Newcastle United Fans – Opinion.
“Kieran is very slightly ahead of schedule,” began Howe earlier this month. “He’s beginning to run back on the grass with his boots on so that’s a great sign for us. He’s still now got to build up his fitness but he’s in a good place.”
Forward Callum Wilson has also stepped up his return, but again will have to wait a little long, recovering from his own battles with a calf problem.
“Callum is now hitting balls towards the goal with no goalkeeper in. It’s only against mannequins but he’s gradually building up to where he wants to be so it’s great to see,” added the Newcastle boss.
“The plan is to have another scan of his hamstring this week, just to see where the injury is. We had an initial scan, and two conflicting opinions, so we’re re-scanning it.”
