Previous meeting

The last time Newcastle and West Brom faced each other was in March of this year, where The Magpies ran out 3-2 winners in the FA Cup to book their place in the Quarter Final of the competition.


Newcastle were 3-0 up thanks to a brace from Miguel Almiron and Valentino Lazaro, but two late goals from Matt Phillips and Kenneth Zahore had The Magpies sweating late on - but they were able to hang on to victory.
