|Norwich City will be seeking to improve a poor recent record in their first home fixture of a new campaign, having failed to win their last four such matches (D1, L3). They failed to find the net before half-time in three of those games, although both teams scored by the final whistle in the last two.|
|The ‘Canaries’ had an impressive home league record during last season’s promotion campaign possessing a win rate of 65.22%. Their home league games saw an average of 3.70 goals per fixture, and 73.91% of those matches featured over 2.5 goals. Norwich also scored a sizable 35.29% of their home league goals after the 75th minute last term.|
|Newcastle United’s recent record across their previous seven first away games of a new campaign doesn’t inspire confidence (D2, L5), especially as they failed to score in any of those matches. They opened slowly last season away from home, finally winning at the sixth attempt.|
|In fact the visitors averaged just 1.05 points per Premier League (PL) road trip last season, winning just 21.05% of their matches, and averaging only 0.95 goals per game. Worryingly, they scored a joint league-low of just five second-half away goals during the 2018/19 PL campaign.|
|Players to watch: Teemu Pukki (NOR) hit 15 home league goals last season, with 12 arriving in the second half.|
|Club record signing Joelinton (NEW) scored four away goals in the Bundesliga for Hoffenheim last season, with three coming in the first half.|
|Stat attack: Norwich are unbeaten in their last ten home league games (W7, D3).|
|Both teams have scored in the last four league H2Hs, with fans being treated to a combined total of 24 goals.|
|Newcastle are unbeaten in their last three away league fixtures (W2, D1) – they netted a first-half opener in each of those games.|
