Picking the Best Potential West Brom Lineup to Face Newcastle United on Saturday

​West Brom face an away trip to ​Newcastle this Saturday, with relegation to the ​Championship now imminent for the Baggies. 


They currently sit in 20th position, with 25 points from 35 games, and any signs of a further resurgence after their recent 2-2 comeback against ​Liverpool, would certainly seem too little too late.


Here's who the manager could pick:

Goalkeeper

  • Foster
    Foster1

Ben Foster will most definitely continue between the sticks this weekend, hoping to continue making his extremely valuable contributions to the team.

Defence

  • Nyom
    Nyom2
  • Dawson
    Dawson25
  • Hegazi
    Hegazi26
  • Gibbs
    Gibbs3

​The defence is likely to remain unchanged from the draw against the Reds.


Craig Dawson will be setup alongside Ahmed Hegazi in the centre of defence, with both hoping to stop Newcastle's dangerous attack in Islam Slimani.


Full backs Allan Nyom and Kieran Gibbs have played the last six Premier League matches together and yet again, they are most likely to get the nod from Darren Moore for this one.

Midfield

  • Phillips
    Phillips10
  • Livermore
    Livermore8
  • Brunt
    Brunt11
  • McClean
    McClean14

West Brom's midfield has bags of experience, with all four having over 100 Premier League appearances to their names.


Chris Brunt has been the captain in Darren Moore's first two games as interim manager, and it's likely he'll partner England international Jake Livermore in centre midfield. Livermore comes into this one off the back of his first goal for the club in last weekend's draw.


In the wide areas, James McClean and Matt Phillips look set to have their names on Moore's team sheet.

Forwards

  • Rondón
    Rondón9
  • Rodriguez
    Rodriguez19

Salomon Rondon got the 88th minute equaliser against Liverpool and although there has been lots of noise and speculation pointing to his departure, he should definitely be starting in this one, being one of West Brom's main attacking threats.


Jay Rodriguez will feature next to him in attack with the 28-year-old having scored three goals in his last five games, including two in his last three.
