Premier League 2018/19: Match previews and predictions for Gameweek 12
#6 Newcastle vs Bournemouth
Like Huddersfield, Newcastle United also registered their first win of the season against Watford. Though the Magpies were the second best in the match, when the chance came, they took it with both hands. Despite the win, Rafa Benitez's side is far from convincing and needs to improve their style of play.
Eddie Howe's side's good run of games came to an end after they lost to Manchester United last weekend. Bournemouth was far better in the first half and should have been out of sight, but Jose Mourinho's side came back in the second half and grabbed a winner in the injury time which was the least that Bournemouth deserved from the game. Still, they have impressed a lot this season, and against Newcastle, the Cherries should fancy themselves to get all three points.
Prediction: Newcastle 0 - 2 Bournemouth
#5 Crystal Palace vs Tottenham
Crystal Palace are two points above the relegation zone and have won just two games this season. Roy Hodgson's side were poor against Chelsea in the previous game, but at home, they came back to draw against Arsenal couple of weeks back. Palace should consider a chance to cause an upset against Spurs this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur have been far from convincing this season. Against top sides like City and Liverpool, Pochettino's team has already lost this campaign and are fighting desperately to finish in the top four. Selhurst Park is a tricky place to visit, and with the form that the Spurs are in, the game could go either way.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Spurs
