Pope was the difference in Newcastle’s progress
With just one Premier League game to come before top-flight football ends for the World Cup break, Newcastle and Palace have named eight and six changes respectively following the wins for the clubs. twice a weekend.
Newcastle manager Howe has handed Allan Saint-Maximin his first start since the end of August as he continues to build up his game minutes following injury – but England World Cup player Callum Wilson, who is battling illness, has withdrawn from the home team.
Patrick Vieira, meanwhile, rested Palace forwards Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze while he selected six youngsters on the substitutes’ bench.
Both sides managed one shot on goal in the first half with a lack of clear chances.
Mateta saw himself beaten on the bus by the Pope as the visitors came close to breaking the deadlock before half-time, as 20-year-old Elliot Anderson shot straight at him. Sam Johnstone.
Johnstone was wary of denying Wood after the Newcastle striker latched on to a poor back-pass from James Tomkins early in the second period, before a downward header from Dan Burn from a well-struck corner for the Eagles’ keeper.
Trippier and Miguel Almiron almost combined for a late winner but Johnstone equalized again with the Paraguayan’s effort as Palace defended in the final penalty.
The shooting was about Newcastle’s number one Pope, while the England man’s three saves kept the Magpies’ hopes alive for a first independent trophy since the FA Cup in 1955.
It was a fitting reminder of the Pope’s confirmation, with his heroics coming the night before England manager Gareth Southgate named his final 26-man squad for the World Cup in Qatar.
“I have to say the first penalty, I thought, was right out of the top drawer,” said Howe on goalkeeper Pope.
“There was actually a save in the first half that I thought was right from the top box, so it wasn’t just a penalty.
“He’s an important figure but he kept the goal with a low profile, the difference he made was not seen.”
Newcastle host Chelsea at St James’ Park on Saturday (17:30 GMT) in their last game before the World Cup break, after Palace visit Nottingham Forest ( 15:00).
