Newcastle United looks to get back on the winning side and sweep a season’s fixtures with West Bromwich Albion for the first time since 2008/09 when they venture into the Hawthorns today (watch live on NBCSN, 10am ET and online via NBC Sports Live Extra).
The Magpies ended a strong run with a 1-0 loss at home to Arsenal on Sunday but will need to regroup immediately if they want their European hopes to remain bright; Newcastle has a date with Manchester City inside of a fortnight.
West Brom is struggling mightily even after sacking manager Steve Clarke, as they haven’t won in their last six matches and have gone four-straight at home without all three points. Their three points from six is second-worst in PL form, and the only team below them is the club they drew 3-3 last week (West Ham).
