Newcastle are placed as 11/10 favourites by Paddy Power to beat West Brom as The Magpies look to push further up the table and fight for a European place.
They might have been stuck near the bottom last season but Newcastle will aim to extend their good form to yet another game as they host a stubborn West Brom side eager to breakthrough into the top half of the table.
Newcastle have enjoyed a good start to the season and are currently 8th in the table although a win could see them climb as high as 4th on Saturday evening.
Following on from their 2-1 win against Norwich, Alan Pardew is likely to name an unchanged side ahead of the game at St James’ Park.
This will mean that the in-form midfield trio of Cheik Tiote, Yohan Cabaye and Moussa Sissoko is set to continue as The Magpies look to carry on their good momentum in the league.
A lot of eyes will also fall on Newcastle striker Loic Remy who remains one of the most prevalent strikers in the league having netted eight goals in his last eight league games this season.
West Brom will hope to avoid the same pitfalls that befell them on Monday night in the 2-2 draw against Aston Villa with The Baggies needing a win to move into the top half of the table.
With their defence letting slip a two goal cushion against Aston Villa, boss Steve Clarke could make some changes in defence although Irish defender Gareth McAuley is expected to keep his place in the backline.
Shane Long will also be a likely figure to feature upfront for West Brom with the Irishman having found his scoring boots after netting three goals in his last two games ending a barren spell that lasted 10 games.
A surprise inclusion in the West Brom attack could be Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe who is particularly fond of scoring against The Magpies having netted four goals against them in his Premier League career- more than any other side in the league.
Although both sides are evenly matched, Newcastle’s consistency and momentum could be enough to see them beat a West Brom side who still look a little shaky in defence from time to time.
