Newcastle vs West Brom LIVE: Latest Premier League updates today

Newcastle United are hosting West Bromwich Albion at St James’ Park in the Premier League this afternoon. Magpies manager Steve Bruce said that he will be without a “big chunk” of his squad for the clash due to Newcastle’s coronavirus outbreak, but they have still managed to field a strong line-up with Callum Wilson up front. Their match with Aston Villa just over a week ago was postponed, and their training ground was closed for over a week following a rise in cases. Bruce said he felt more like a “doctor” or a “politician” rather than a manager, and didn’t name the players or staff in question out of respect for their privacy.

Meanwhile, West Brom manager Slaven Bilic is under pressure as his side sit in 19th, and have won just once – against last-place Sheffield United – in the league all season. The Baggies have also lost four of their last five matches in the league, and Bilic is reportedly facing the sack after the 5-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace last week.

Follow all the latest updates from the game below, following the conclusion of Wolves vs Aston Villa.
