Newcastle United will face West Bromwich Albion at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Newcastle United will win against West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

The Magpies will take on West Brom at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Former Newcastle striker Owen has backed the home team to register a victory and pick up all three points.

“West Brom needed an injury-time equaliser to earn a share of the spoils with Swansea at the Hawthorns and will struggle to get out of jail again in the North-East,” the former England international wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Newcastle to win at 23/20 with BetVictor.”

The Magpies will head into the game against the Baggies on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the league.

Meanwhile, West Brom currently find themselves 14th in the Premier League table with 29 points from 24 games.

Tony Pulis’s side will head into the match against Newcastle on the back of a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Swansea City at The Hawthorns in the league.
