THE PREDICTION

Newcastle fans will be desperate to see record signing Almiron start here and that will no doubt lead to a good atmosphere at St James' Park if he does line up. Huddersfield are bereft of confidence right now and are in complete freefall which should play into the inspired hosts' hands here.
