These teams have not played since 2017 when both were in the English League Championship. Since then, Norwich got promoted and now they can renew their rivalry.
Newcastle lost their opening match to Arsenal by a score of 1-0. This game was pretty lackluster and did not see a goal until the 58th minute. Now Newcastle will be looking to avoid back to back losses and will hope to at least get a draw on the road.
The attack for Newcastle was quiet, which concerns me for this game. They only had 9 shots, 2 of which were on target. While, they will not be playing a team as talented as Arsenal, they still did not not show anything positive in their attack. Maybe they can turn things around because it is Norwich, but I am not expecting much here.
The defense was not terrible, but they were not good enough in the end. This ties back to the attack, which only had 38% of the possession. This means that the defense was playing on their half of the pitch for majority of the match. At the very least, they held Arsenal to just 8 shots, despite all the possession that was allowed. I am looking for a similar defensive performance and because their opponent is lacking, it could be enough to get them a result.
Norwich played the opening game of the Premier League against Liverpool and boy did this match go south quickly. Norwich ended up losing 4-1 and really never had a chance to take down Liverpool.
Norwich had just one goal to show for, but by the time they scored in the second half, Liverpool was already ahead 4-0. They did managed to get 12 shots on Liverpool, with 5 on target. As small as this is, it has to be a moral victory to have won the second half. It is not going to reflect on the scoreboard, but it could give Norwich more confidence when they head home.
The defending looked horrible in the first half and it started in the 7th minute when Norwich scored an own goal. Three more goals proceeded this making the score 4-0 at halftime. Again, a small moral victory has to be the fact that they held Liverpool scoreless in the second half. If the Norwich defense from the second half shows up against Newcastle, it will be a very close game.
Free Newcastle United vs. Norwich City EPL Prediction:
This game just feels like a draw. Neither side is very good and I do not think they will be able to find many goals.

I do not expect much scoring here as both teams are lacking. I will take the under and look for a low scoring draw.
