Predicted Newcastle starting line-up vs West Brom

updated

on

Newcastle United take on West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League later today and it could prove to be a vital game as far as the relegation battle is concerned.

The Magpies are currently 17th in the Premier League table and cannot afford to keep dropping points.

Steve Bruce’s side have lost two and drawn one of their last three league games and he is under pressure to get his side back to winning ways.

The Baggies are also struggling having failed to win five of their last six league games and Sam Allardyce will be hoping to pull off a big win here.

Newcastle have been quite poor in recent weeks and West Brom will certainly fancy their chances at home.

The Magpies have lost seven of their last eight away matches in the league and they will need to improve immensely in order to get the three points here.

Newcastle have quite a few injury issues to deal with and they will be without Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron, Javier Manquillo, Fabian Schar and Callum Wilson.

The likes of Isaac Hayden and Emil Krafth are also doubtful.

Predicted Newcastle starting line-up: Dubravka, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Lewis, Hendrick, Shelvey, Fraser, Willock, Joelinton, Carroll.

Steve Bruce is likely to make four changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

27-year-old Ryan Fraser should return to the starting line-up in order to compensate for the lack of creativity.

Fernandez, Carroll and Hendrick are expected to start.
