Newcastle v Fulham prediction and team news: Who will win Premier League game?
Our predictions for Newcastle v Fulham in the Premier League, including who we think will win and predicted line-ups.
Newcastle will bid to return to winning ways in the Premier League as the race for Champions League qualification intensifies.
The Magpies welcome high-flying Fulham to St James' Park having been held to goalless draws in their last two league outings against Leeds and Arsenal.
Anything less than all three points will hamper Newcastle's top-four chances, with Manchester United and Tottenham breathing down their necks in the battle to fill the places behind Arsenal and Manchester City.
Fulham make the long trip north less than 72 hours after beating local rivals Chelsea to secure four successive Premier League wins for the first time in their history.
The Whites welcome back Aleksandar Mitrovic from his one-game suspension and the Serbian striker is likely to take back his place in Marco Silva's team from Carlos Vinicius, who headed home the winner in the south west London derby.

Newcastle v Fulham prediction
A match up between two of the Premier League's most in-form teams - and it should be a cracker thanks to both adopting easy-on-the-eye tactics.
Newcastle secured an emphatic 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Craven Cottage in October, although the Magpies were helped by Nathaniel Chalobah's reckless red card in the eighth minute.
It's difficult to see a similar result playing out because Fulham are on such a high, but St James' Park is becoming a fortress once again for Newcastle and Eddie Howe's team have the attacking talent to make the most of the visitors' occasional defensive lapses.
Aleksandar Mitrovic's return is a boost for Fulham and the former Newcastle hotshot will be eager to get on the scoresheet against his former club.
