Jamie Carragher looks ahead to Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has his say on Sunday’s Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United at The Hawthorns.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that Newcastle United’s big test starts now.

Alan Pardew’s side are on a four-game winning run in all competitions and have picked up 10 points from their four matches in the Premier League.

Last month, Newcastle got the better of Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, and edged past Liverpool at St. James’ Park 1-0 last weekend.

On Sunday, Newcastle will take on West Bromwich Albion away from home in the league, and Carragher says that it will be interesting to see if the Magpies can register a win.

‘They have taken some big scalps in this four-game winning run – Man City in the Capital One Cup, Tottenham and Liverpool in the Premier League – but that has tended to be Alan Pardew’s way throughout his managerial career’, Carragher told Sky Sports.

‘The big test for Newcastle now, though, is to win a game they are expected to win. Will they carry on with the counter-attacking style of recent matches or because the possession against West Brom could be more evenly split, will they mix it up? It should be an interesting game’.

West Brom are currently 11th in the league table with 13 points from 10 matches.
