West Brom vs Newcastle: Predictions
West Brom have not yet given up hope of pulling off another great escape, but their hopes of surviving relegation were dealt a blow by a 0-1 home defeat to Everton on Thursday night. Having avoided defeat in the three games previous to that loss, the Baggies have narrowed the gap between themselves and the target of 17th place to just nine points but with time running out, Sam Allardyce needs to pick up three huge points against his former club this weekend.
Newcastle, meanwhile, have been dragged right into the relegation dog fight. Steve Bruce’s men have won just two of their last 15 Premier League games, nine points from a possible 45 during that time. The Magpies now hover just three points above Fulham in 18th and with the likes of Spurs, Liverpool, Leicester and Man City still to play between now and the end of the season, this is quite simply a must-win encounter.
