Newcastle and West Brom face off in an English Premier League showdown on Saturday at St. James Park.
Newcastle currently sits in 13th place in the standings after picking up 14 points so far this season. Newcastle has been up and down this season but they are coming off a win in their last game over Crystal Palace. The last game for Newcastle was a scoreless draw for most of the game before a goal in the 88th minute opened the scoring, and they added another goal in the 90th minute.Newcastle only had 42 percent of the possession but the defense was actually pretty good giving up only three shots on goal. Two games ago against Chelsea they also gave up only three shots on goal, but two of those went on the back of the net.
West Brom has had some struggles so far this year and they have only picked up 6 points which puts them in 19th place in the standings. If the season ended today, West Brom would be relegated. West Brom two games ago beat a bad Sheffield United by a goal, but in the last game against Crystal Palace the defense really struggled giving up five goals and that led to a 5-1 loss. For the most part, West Brom has actually been a decent team on defense, but in the last game they were really let down. Even though the defense hasn’t been terrible for the most part, their offense has been an even bigger issue. Callum Robinson and Conor Gallagher have been the leader scorers with two goals. In this game West Brom needs to get their offense going.
West Brom’s offense is an issue and that is going to struggle to keep this game in this game. As long as Newcastle scores one goal that will be enough to come away with a victory. Back Newcastle to win this game on the money line.
