West Brom have lost two in a row while playing ok last time out against Swansea discipline cost them in the game before where they lost Rondon and Mclean to straight red cards. Both players will miss tomorrow's game against a rejuvenated Newcastle United which is a tough game for the Baggies. With Tony Pulis at the helm though you can be guaranteed that West Brom will be focused tomorrow and will take the game to Newcastle but they have really struggled in front of goal this season and while Saido Berahino is an able replacement for Rondon but has not found the net since scoring the winner against Sunderland in October.
Newcastle got robbed late on Boxing Day when Tom Cleverly scored the winning goal two minutes into injury time. Newcastle boss Steve Mclaren though will hav been happy with his team's general performance in the game as they defended well , took the pressure that Everton through at them and we really unlucky to lose the game. With Cissokho, Cisse, Perez, Mitrovic and Wijnaldum there is enough attacking talent here to give West Brom some problems. I like how Newcastle have performed over the last month and I think they have the players to get out of their current relegation struggles but they do need to pick up points and I think this is an opportunity for
This is a tough one to handicap but based on recent games and the loss of Mclean and Rondon I am going to take the away underdog here to get a rare away win for the Magpies.
