Premier League Preview for West Brom v Newcastle along with Predictions for the week 34 EPL match. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week. You can also check out the weekly EPL TV Schedule.
I’m not sure what to say to preview this one. West Brom seem to have run out of steam after realizing that they are going to finish in the middle of the Premier League Table. This isn’t to say they’ve given up, but they do seem to have lost most of the drive they had to start the year.
Newcastle are a team that need to find some drive and do so before they get dropped back into the Championship. I don’t think they will end up being relegated, but they certainly aren’t looking like a team that wants to avoid the drop. They have been hugely inconsistent and have often looked like they lack the spirit needed to get into some games (such as the Tyne-Wear derby on Sunday). They have lacked creativity in midfield and have done little to replace the many players out due to injury.
This could be a match worth missing considering how poorly they have been playing lately. Of course, this is football and you never know for sure when there’s going to be an amazing, can’t miss match. Though it probably won’t be this one.
My prediction for this Saturday EPL match is a West Brom win. They have been slumping, but are coming up against a less creative, less enthusiastic Newcastle team. West Brom should be able to rely on being at home for that little edge to push them through to a win.
West Brom (W, L, W, D, L, L) 2 – 1 Newcastle (L, W, L, L, W, L)
