Newcastle United vs Fulham Prediction

Newcastle United sit 14th in the league table, and have so far performed as expected. The likes of Callum Wilson and Karl Darlow have impressed, and the Magpies look to be on course for another mid-table finish.

Fulham, on the other hand, have experienced a mini-Renaissance of late. After a poor start, Scott Parker's side have produced some good performances, including a commendable draw against Premier League champions Liverpool.

Fulham are looking in good touch, but Newcastle United thrive in their inconsistency. We predict a draw between these two sides on Saturday.

Prediction: Newcastle United 1-1 Fulham
