Newcastle v West Brom team news

Newcastle: A raft of Toon players are due to face fitness tests ahead of Saturday’s game, including Ryan Fraser, Andy Carroll, Jamaal Lascelles, Allan Saint-Maximin and Dwight Gayle. Martin Dubravka is unlikely to be fit to feature.

Isaac Hayden requires a negative COVID-19 test before being available for selection and Paul Dummett remains out with a thigh issue.

West Brom: Matheus Pereira is suspended for the Baggies after being sent off in the defeat to Crystal Palace. Jake Livermore has tested negative for COVID-19 but may not be deemed fit enough to feature – and the same goes for Sam Field.

Hal Robson-Kanu isn’t due back from wrist surgery for another week and Conor Townsend is out until the New Year.

Our prediction: Newcastle v West Brom

Newcastle’s week off could act as a blessing ahead of the congestive festive fixture list – and Bruce will hope his men pick up from where they left off after beating Palace 2-0 at the end of November.

The Baggies, meanwhile, are struggling for goals and Pereira’s absence through suspension only makes their task harder.

Newcastle should edge this game even if they are not at their best. Joelinton is finally up and running for the season with a goal last time out and the Brazilian could make a big difference here too.

Our prediction: Newcastle 1-0 West Brom
