    • KICK OFF
    • 45'
      Craig Pawson blows his whistle and that is the last action of the first half!
    • 90'
      That will do it! The referee blows the whistle for full time, and Newcastle enjoy a fourth consecutive league win!
    • 90'
      Foster collects a long ball forward and places it down before running nearly up to the halfway line, taking matters into his own hands. He sends a pass forward, but more great defensive work from Colback ends up winning a goal kick for his side.

      West Brom travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea, while Newcastle play host to QPR in the first game back for each team following the international break.
    • 0'
      FULL TIME: WEST BROM 0-2 NEWCASTLE. Two assists from Daryl Janmaat, and goals in each half for the visitors, sees them win their fifth consecutive match in all competitions, while extending West Brom's streak to three games without a win at the Hawthorns.
    • 0'
      HALF TIME: WEST BROM 0-1 NEWCASTLE. In a first half that was fairly even, the visitors have stolen the lead in the final seconds. A wonderful move was capped off by a goal of the season candidate from Ayoze Perez. The game is far from over, however, as Anichebe and Berahino have looked increasingly
    • 0'
      Steven Taylor is a late injury absentee for Alan Pardew, which brings Frenchman Massadio Haidara into the starting line-up. Remy Cabella replaces the injured Gabriel Obertan in midfield, while Ayoze Perez gets the start over Papiss Cisse, who is fit, but will start on the substitute's bench.

      NEWCASTLE SUBS: R. Taylor, Williamson, Anita, Cisse, Gouffran, Elliot, Armstrong.

    • 0'
      Coach Alan Irvine has to make due without the injured Silvestre Varela and Jonas Olsson, while Craig Gardner misses out due to suspension, being replaced by Youssouf Mulumbu. The most interesting change comes up top, where Victor Anichebe gets the start at striker, with Saido Berahino slotting in be

      The teams have been announced, so let us have ourselves a look at the starting line-ups:
    • 0'
      It is amazing what a difference a few weeks can make. Alan Pardew was left for dead a month ago, with fans calling for his head. Fast forward to today, and Newcastle have won four straight matches in all competitions, which includes impressive victories over Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City
    • 0'
      Alan Irvine has turned West Bromwich into a very hard team to beat. The Baggies stumbled through the first month of the season, but have lost just once since then. It remains essential for them to turn the Hawthorns back into the fortress it once was, after winning just four games in front of their

      Good day Premier League fans around the world, and welcome to West Midlands. The Hawthorns is our venue today, as West Bromwich host Newcastle, with both teams hoping to move into the top half of the table. I am Alex Moretto and I will be your in-game host, guiding you through the match LIVE as it h
    • 1'
      West Brom kick off and we are underway at the Hawthorns! The hosts, moving left to right, are in their white tops and blue shorts, with Newcastle in their dark blue shirts with light green bottoms.
    • 3'
      The two teams feel each other out in the early minutes, with possession changing hands often. Mulumbu concedes a free kick as he takes out Remy Cabella, which gives the visitors their first chance of the match from a set piece situation.
    • 5'
      Colback takes the free kick, but a strong defensive header sees Dorrans clear the danger. The visitors get back on the ball, keeping possession nicely in midfield, passing into space which has caused the hosts some problems early on.
    • 7'
      Another promising chance for Newcastle comes from a set piece. Cabella takes a free kick to the left of the penalty area and sends a wonderful ball into the box, which Dummett manages to meet at the far post, but heads over the bar.
    • 9'
      Another free kick for the visitors, in a virtual identical position, as Ameobi shows some wonderfully quick feet to force Dorrans into a tackle. Cabella delivers, but it is put behind at the near post for a corner. The Frenchman delivers again from the set piece, but some good defending from Pocogno
    • 11'
      OFF THE BAR! Magnificent attempt from Sammy Ameobi, as he drifts into the centre and takes a pass at the top of the box. He turns and squares up towards goal, and has Krul beaten with his shot, but strikes it off the crossbar!
    • 13'
      Much better from the hosts! Mulumbu and Wisdom link up well along the right wing, with the midfielder taking a return pass, and beating Colback to the byline. He sends a wonderful cross in towards the far post, but Pocognoli arrives just a second too late, failing to make contact with the ball befor
    • 15'
      STAT ATTACK: With three wins, three defeats and four draws from their first 10 matches, West Brom have the exact same record they did at this stage last season. They also have the exact same goal differential, of zero.
    • 17'
      WONDERFUL BUILD UP! Brunt and Morrison prove vital in keeping the hosts in possession in the attacking half, with the latter picking out Anichebe at the top of the box. The striker lays it off for Berahino, who hits it first time and forces an uncomfortable save from Krul, who tips it over the bar f
    • 19'
      West Brom have really taken the game over now, since the early surge from Newcastle. A quick throw in deep in the attacking half comes to Dorrans, who nudges forward and sends a cross into the centre. Brunt does very well to meet it, but his header glances narrowly over the bar.
    • 21'
      The pace has not really been allowed to develop in this match so far, with a plethora of stoppages interrupting the flow. Neither team is keeping possession for extended periods here, looking to break forward soon after they win the ball, without a very high success rate.
    • 23'
      Great run forward from Colback, who gets near the top of the area before trying to slip in Sissoko. The midfielder takes the pass, but opts to stop his run and play it back for Ameobi. The move loses its pace, and West Brom get back in numbers to sniff it out.
    • 25'
      GREAT BLOCK! More delightful passing from the hosts, as Morrison picks out Berahino, who links up smartly with Anichebe, playing the striker through on goal. He takes a quick shot as he breaks into the area, but Dummett rushes across to slide in and get an all-important block in.
    • 27'
      STAT ATTACK: Newcastle's victory over Tottenham in their last away match in the Premier League ended a nine match league winless run away from St. James' Park. They were held scoreless seven times over that span.
    • 29'
      As we approach the half hour mark, West Brom continue to enjoy a bit more time in possession, with Anichebe offering up quite a viable option up top as he gives Dummett a difficult time. Again the striker takes a long pass and turns around the defender, but another block sees it run behind for a cor
    • 31'
      A promising passing move comes to an end for West Brom as Berahino slides in late at the feet of Abeid to concede a free kick. The hosts are not afraid to get their wing-backs forward to join the attack, which has provided some much needed support in the final third.
    • 33'
      Colback makes another strong run forward after Abeid does well to win the ball in midfield. He breaks up along the left and sends a lovely pass across to pick out Janmaat in the centre. The defender goes down just outside the area, but no foul is given and the chance comes to nothing.
    • 35'
      The bulk of Newcastle's chances have come from free kicks, and they get another one along the left. Cabella sends in a strong ball from close to 40 yards out, but Abeid can only head it over the bar after getting in a god position for the header.
    • 37'
      Strong defending from Haidara! Berahino causes a bit of panic at the back for Newcastle as he presses high up the pitch. He wins the ball back from Dummett and looks to break into the area, but Haidara is across to nudge him off the ball, as Krul comes out to collect.
    • 39'
      STAT ATTACK: West Brom have kept four clean sheets this season, with only Southampton (six) and Swansea City (five) managing more.
    • 41'
      Newcastle pass their way up the pitch, something they have not managed often in this first half, with Sissoko sending a final ball through for Perez. Foster rushes out of his box to get there ahead of the striker, who was called offside anyhow. That move will be much more encouraging for the visitor
    • 43'
      INCREDIBLE STRENGTH! Anichebe takes a harmless looking pass inside the penalty area, and does remarkably well to get past Coloccini, who was draped all over him, lucky not to concede a penalty. The striker gets close to goal, but Dummett is able to slide in at the vital moment to push the ball behin
    • 45'
      G Ayoze Pérez Assist D. Janmaat
    • 45'
      D. Janmaat gave the assist.
    • 45'
      It is a dazzling finish to cap off an exquisite move from the visitors! Cabella takes a pass at the top of the box and passes it off for Janmaat on the right. The right-back sends a lovely low cross into the danger area, and Ayoze Perez puts it in at the far post with a sensational back heel finish!
    • 45'
    • 46'
      SI C. Gamboa SO D. Janmaat
    • 46'
      C. Gamboa enters the game and replaces S. Pocognoli.
    • 46'
      Newcastle get the second half underway at the Hawthorns! The hosts have made a change at the break, bringing on Cristian Gamboa for Sebastien Pocognoli.
    • 48'
      The visitors start the second half confidently, keeping possession well and forcing West Brom to chase a bit in midfield. They win an early free kick, which the hosts manage to clear, but retain possession
    • 50'
      Excellent play from Colback, who has been wonderful today in midfield, as he wins a ball back and starts Newcastle forward with a clever outlet pass to pick out Ameobi. The forward takes the ball all the way to the byline before driving in a cross, but straight at Foster who makes a simple catch.
    • 52'
      NEAR DISASTER! Substitute Cristian Gamboa sends a superb ball forward for Berahino. Krul rushes out, but cannot get there first. The keeper is let off the hook, however, as the striker fails to nudge the ball past him with his header, allowing Dummett to recover and clear.
    • 54'
      STAT ATTACK: Before today, Newcastle had scored nine of their 11 goals in their second half of matches this season, with five of them coming from substitutes.
    • 56'
      The hosts push forward along the right and win a corner. The delivery is sent high into the air, creeping towards Lescott at the far post. Krul does well to read the flight of the ball, getting off his line and backpedaling to make the catch.
    • 58'
      The game has become real choppy in this second half, as the midfield has become a black hole where possession goes to die. Very little space is being afforded by either side, which has limited the teams to playing hopeful balls over the top.
    • 60'
      JUST WIDE! A chance from nothing for the hosts. Newcastle concede possession inside their own half, and Brunt picks out a pass for Mulumbu, who is towering forward. The midfielder steps around Colback far too easily, but fires just wide of the far post from a bit over 20 yards out.
    • 62'
      G F. Coloccini Assist D. Janmaat
    • 62'
      D. Janmaat gave the assist.
    • 62'
      Newcastle work the ball forward and win themselves a corner. Cabella delivers, but it is poor and cleared at the near post. The visitors keep it alive and Colback picks out Janmaat on the right. The defender sends a sensational ball into the box, which Coloccini heads to ground, past Foster and into
    • 62'
    • 63'
      SI S. Sessègnon SO D. Janmaat
    • 63'
      S. Sessègnon enters play, replacing Y. Mulumbu.
    • 64'
      The hosts really have to go for it now. Stephane Sesegnon comes on for them, to provide more of an attacking threat, with Mulumbu the one to give way. The change will leave them a bit exposed at the back, but they are out of options, trailing by two goals.
    • 66'
      STAT ATTACK: West Brom have won just one of their five matches at the Hawthorns this season (D3, L1). They have conceded two goals in each of the four games they failed to record a victory.
    • 68'
      Getting it done at both ends now, is Janmaat. The right-back has two assists, and just broke up a promising looking move for the hosts with an important interception. West Brom are lacking a real threat going forward, partly due to Newcastle's strong play in midfield.
    • 70'
      Chances are few and far between now, with Newcastle committing men back in defence. They are making life very difficult on West Brom, who have yet to look like finding a way back into this game.
    • 72'
      Good work from Morrison in midfield allows him to fend off Colback and pick out Sessegnon on the left, who subsequently wins a free kick as Janmaat comes in with a tackle. Brunt delivers, again Newcastle are first to it as Dummett heads clear.
    • 74'
      Newcastle have to be careful as they get a bit complacent here, seeing very little of the ball. Cabella takes it forward this time, and kills 15-20 seconds near the corner flag before giving possession straight back. There is too much time left for Pardew's men to start wasting time.
    • 76'
      SI G. Samaras SO D. Janmaat
    • 76'
      G. Samaras enters the game and replaces G. Dorrans.
    • 76'
      The final change for West Brom sees Georgios Samaras come into the match. It in another necessary attacking change, and the hosts now have plenty of options going forward. There is little excuse not to not test Tim Krul in goal.
    • 78'
      SI M. Williamson SO D. Janmaat
    • 78'
      SI Y. Gouffran SO D. Janmaat
    • 78'
      F. Coloccini is done for the day. M. Williamson is his replacement.
    • 78'
      Y. Gouffran comes on for Sammy Ameobi.
    • 78'
      West Brom pass it around and win a throw near the corner flag. Newcastle use the stoppage to make a double substitution, and drain nearly a full minute off the clock.
    • 80'
      NEARLY A FIRST FOR THE HOSTS! Clever build up play from West Brom, as Morrison picks out Anichebe at the top of the box, who gives a one touch pass to Wisdom on the left of the area. He breaks in and has a clean look at goal from a tight angle, but blasts his shot high and wide at the near post.
    • 82'
      SI R. Taylor SO D. Janmaat
    • 82'
      R. Cabella is replaced with R. Taylor.
    • 82'
      The final substitution of the match is made as Newcastle bring on an extra defender. They are selling out to protect this two goal lead now, as West Brom are enjoying the bulk of possession at the moment.
    • 84'
      STAT ATTACK: Perhaps a glimmer of hope for West Brom fans? The Baggies have played five league matches at home this season, three of which have ended in 2-2 draws.
    • 86'
      Brilliant work from Ayoze Perez! The striker chases down a ball in the West Brom half, and wins it near the penalty area. He fends off a defender, and as support still does not arrive, he plays it off Dawson and behind for a corner.
    • 87'
      GREAT CHANCE! The corner is played short and crossed into the area, where Ayoze rushes on to meet it with a volley, but Foster just gets a hand up to tip it over the bar! Incredible stuff from striker and keeper alike.
    • 89'
      Into the final minute of the 90 now, and West Brom still have not figured out this Newcastle defence. They have posed no threat in the final third, throughout the near entirety of the second half. This is looking more and more like three points for the visitors.
    • 90'
      There will be three minutes of stoppage time added on...
