West Brom vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview


West Brom vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview

West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United take on each other at the Hawthorns in what is expected to be a close relegation six-pointer.

The Baggies suffered a 1-0 loss to Everton on Wednesday evening, with the team remaining in the relegation zone. 

The Baggies are eager to keep their survival hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Newcastle. 

Since defender Kieran Gibbs should be the only absentee in Sam Allardyce’s team, we believe that home win should be considered.

The Magpies, on the other hand, collected only one point in total from the previous three league fixtures. Newcastle United are not enjoying a season to remember, and given Callum Wilson’s injury, we are tempted to put our money on the home team. 

Manquillo and Schar are sidelined with injuries as well, while Fernandez is a major doubt.

Team News:

West Brom have no major injury or suspension issues to contend with, full-back Kieran Gibbs being their only doubt for this game with an injury that has kept him out since January.

Robert Snodgrass returned to action as a second-half substitute against Everton, while Hal Robson-Kanu was also brought on in the same game, and both will be pushing for a start.

However, that would likely mean Matt Phillips, a player who has been directly involved in five goals in his last four Premier League appearances against Newcastle, dropping out.

As for the visitors, they are without aforementioned trio Wilson, Almiron and Saint-Maximin for the foreseeable future.

Joelinton is therefore nailed on to start up top, with Arsenal loanee Joe Willock providing some support.

After clashing with boss Bruce in the week, Matt Ritchie - a second-half substitute against Wolves - is unlikely to play any part in the West Midlands.

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Townsend; Snodgrass, Maitland-Niles, Yokuslu, Gallagher, Pereira; Diagne

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Murphy, Lascelles, Clark, Lewis; Hendrick, Hayden, Shelvey, Fraser; Willock, Joelinton
