"A massive game". Paul Merson states his prediction for Newcastle vs Norwich City

  Newcastle will host Norwich City in the Premier League on Tuesday, November 30. Ahead of the game, Paul Merson has stated his prediction on SportsKeeda. The Magpies are currently 20th in the league table with 6 points, meanwhile, Norwich are 19th with 9 points. At the weekend, Newcastle suffered a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal, while the Canaries played a goalless draw with Wolves.
This is a massive game for both teams. Norwich have turned the corner a little bit with two good results in the Premier League. They did well against Wolves and probably could’ve beaten them. Norwich have now put themselves in a position where they can afford to just draw this game," said Merson.   Newcastle went gung-ho against Brentford but conceded three goals. They sat back against Arsenal and kept it tight – fair play to them. When they have to go win a game, however, I’m not sure they’re good enough to keep a clean sheet.   I can’t emphasise how massive the next four days are for Newcastle. If they don’t win their next two games, they probably will be relegated by the end of the season. They haven’t played a cup final in god knows how long – this is a cup final. It’s an absolute must-win game of the highest order. They’re already six points adrift, and they have to win these two games.   If Norwich are brave, I think they can get something out of this. I think Norwich are going to sit back and let the hosts play, and that could play into Newcastle’s hands this week.
