West Bromwich Albion are seemingly destined for an instant return to the Championship - but Sunday lunchtime's clash remains of vital importance to opponents Newcastle United.

Currently holding a three-point advantage on third-bottom Fulham, with a game in hand, the Magpies can put distance between themselves and those sides in danger of the drop.

Under the guidance of Sam Allardyce, West Brom haven't entirely given up hope of securing a second season in the Premier League.

However, if Allardyce and co are to be beaten by one of his old clubs, that would leave the Baggies 12 points behind Newcastle.

Here is everything you need to know as Steve Bruce's relegation-threatened side target a first win in five Premier League games.

What is the West Brom vs Newcastle early team news?

Newcastle are set to be without Allan Saint-Maximin (groin) and Miguel Almiron (knee), with those two expected to be missing throughout March on the back of a double injury blow for Steve Bruce's side.

Callum Wilson is not yet fit enough to return, either, after a hamstring issue forced the England striker off against Southampton on February 6. He remains their top scorer with 10 goals this season.

As for the Baggies, meanwhile, Grady Diangana is almost certain to miss out through a non-Covid related illness, while Kieran Gibbs (neck) has already been ruled out by Sam Allardyce.

One man who is back in contention, though, is Semi Ajayi. He was suspended last time out after picking up a red card at Burnley.
