Recent respective form guides
Newcastle United's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Magpies have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
Fulham's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Cottagers's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.
Newcastle Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 34 points from 36 matches. Fulham's 50 points from 36 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 7th position.
