The Newcastle vs Crystal Palace live stream is a lot less important now than it might have been, but there are still vital points at stake — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab).

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace live stream date, time, channels

The Newcastle vs Crystal Palace live stream takes place today (Wednesday, April 20).

A couple of months ago, Newcastle looked odds-on for relegation. But a bunch of big new signings, a new manager and a new focus have seen the Magpies climb away from trouble. 

In fact, they currently sit 12 points clear of the bottom three and level on points with today's opponents Crystal Palace, who have never been considered a relegation risk this season. But though they're in much better shape now, Newcastle aren't 100% safe. They've played a game or two more than most teams below them, and have a tough run-in. They'll want three points here to move to that magic 40-point mark.

Crystal Palace will obviously want to win too, but their remaining fixtures look like offering plenty of point-scoring opportunities. Plus, they may be a little deflated following their FA Cup semi-final defeat against Chelsea on Sunday. So our money is on a Newcastle win here. 

Here's how they line up:

Newcastle: Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett, Guimaraes, Shelvey, Joelinton, Almiron, Wood, Saint-Maximin

Crystal Palace: Guaita, Kouyate, Andersen, Guehi, Clyne, Olise, Gallagher, Schlupp, Mitchell, Edouard, Zaha
