The stats:-

Miguel Almiron is the sixth different Paraguayan goalscorer in the Premier League after Diego Gavilan, Roque Santa Cruz, Antolin Alcaraz, Cristian Riveros, and Fabian Balbuena. Diego Gavilan obviously played for Newcastle at the time.

Newcastle United are unbeaten in their last eight home Premier League matches (W4 D4), their longest run at St James' Park since in April 2012 (nine unbeaten).

Crystal Palace have failed to score in eight of their 18 Premier League games this season; only bottom side Watford have failed in more (10).

After seven games unbeaten against Steve Bruce (W3 D4), Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has tasted his first Premier League defeat against the Newcastle manager.
